Bengaluru, Aug 8: Congress is confused on the Ram Mandir issue and in dilemma to take a firm stand fearing loss of Muslim or Hindu votes, according to BJP leader and Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.

"Congress opposed BJP's stand on constructing Ram Mandir in Ayodya, it called Lord Ram fictional and even decided to break the Ramsetu. Now, Congressmen are speaking the other way. Congress cannot think beyond vote bank politics which is in its DNA itself. Congressmen think that they are born to be in power," he said while speaking to media persons. 

He said that BJP is all for constructing a grand Ram Mandir peacefully and legally, due to its conviction and not for politics. Same was the case with the revocation of Article 370 for Jammu & Kashmir. Anti-national activities have comparatively come down now. 

Some people do not want everything going smoothly in the country, and Congress and Asaduddin Owaisi are among them, Joshi opined, adding that the Congress is merely frustrated.

Bengaluru, Sep 16: The Karnataka government on Tuesday requested the government doctors to withdraw their agitation over salary hike as it has conceded to their demand, 'despite the grim economic conditions.' However, the Karnataka Government Medical Officers Association (KGMOA) said they would take a call on withdrawing their agitation after consulting their district units and holding a meeting with the government once again on Friday.

Until then, as per their plan, they will boycott meetings and not share COVID19 data, KGMOA said.

With medical officers refusing to share COVID-19 reports with the government, there was under reporting of cases in some districts on Tuesday, like- Bagalkote reporting zero cases, Udupi 1 and lesser than usual in others, official sources said.

Though the tests and treatment to those infected are going on, the data was not being shared, they said, adding that 'we need to see what happens tomorrow.' Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar, terming the talks with KGMOA office-bearers as 'fruitful', said the government has decided to give in to the demand 'to uplift the hard working doctors.' 'The doctors have been working hard day in and out.. in the light of this, the Chief Minister has given the nod to all the proposals by the Health Department in the past six months and this too will be fulfilled,' he said.

The demand will be addressed and the Finance department has been briefed in this regard, Sudhakar was quoted as saying by his office in a release.

'The revision in salaries will be made based on six-year, 13-year, and 20-year promotions for the doctors and details on the same will be obtained from the medical officers,' he said, adding that even though this was a burden on the government, it would be addressed on a priority basis.

Along with Sudhakar, Deputy Chief Minister C N Ashwath Narayan and Health Minister B Sriramulu were part of the meeting that was attended by senior health department officials.

Over 4,900 government doctors working in various health facilities run by the Health and Family Welfare Department are on strike, demanding pay parity with their counterparts in the Medical Education Department or pay revision as per the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) scale.

They had decided not to share COVID data online or offline, and to boycott the meetings.

KGMOA President Dr Srinivas G A Tuesday said the government had stated it would fulfil their demands.

'We will discuss with office bearers of all our district units tomorrow, and on Friday will hold a meeting with Ministers once again and announce our decision.' He said their agitation would continue till Friday.

Bengaluru, Sept 27: Karnataka Minister for Tourism, C T Ravi on Sunday said that he was ready to resign the Minister post and devote himself to strengthening the party whenever the party instructs.

Speaking to newsmen here, he said that his main objective will always be party organization.

"I was not expecting the post of BJP general secretary. I have never worked with any aspiration. Party loyalty and hard work is my principle. I have always handled all responsibilities handed to me," he added.

Talking to reporters after being elected as National General Secretary of the BJP, Ravi said that he could never accomplish what late leader Ananth Kumar has but will try to reach the heights reached by him. Such a chance is only possible in our party. I will be working in Stat-level and will not be working with the party in Delhi. My first priority will be party organization.

Speaking on the bandh called by some farmer organisations Ravi said: “If ten traders come to the farmers’ doorstep to buy their produce then it is good for the farmers. Farmers will get a fair price. I request all farmers not to fall prey to politically motivated actions. Congress itself had promised this in their manifesto. Why are they opposing it now?”
