Bengaluru, Aug 13: Karnataka Minister CT Ravi on Thursday attacked Congress and said that they have "insulted" Dalits at every step since 1947.

"From Nehru to Rahul and Priyanka, the Dynasty has insulted Dalits at every step since 1947. 

While Nehru ensured the defeat of Dr BR Ambedkar, Rahul and Priyanka have denied justice to their own Dalit MLA whose house was violently attacked by a Muslim mob," Ravi said.

Recently, Congress MLA Srinivas Murthy's residence in Bengaluru was vandalised, allegedly over an inciting social media post by his nephew.

Murthy's house was attacked by people for an alleged controversial post on Facebook regarding Prophet Muhammad by his nephew Naveen.

On August 12, Murthy demanded police security after his house was set on fire.

The MLA said the miscreants were not from his party but were outsiders. Expressing concern, he questioned if this could happen to an MLA then what would happen to others.

Easy ride for ST Somashekar in Yeshwanthpur?

Mysuru, Jan 19: Mysuru District In-charge Minister S T Somashekar said the BJP government and its ministers do not need the certificate of the former chief minister and Opposition Leader Siddaramaiah.

Speaking to media persons here on Tuesday, Somashekar said, the certificates of the BJP high-command and the Union Home Minister is enough.

Neither Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa nor the other ministers need Siddaramaiah's certificate. "He should stop predicting the future of the BJP and its government. Rather he should concentrate on his duties as Opposition Leader and on his own party affairs. Such statements, for publicity sake, are not good for him. He seems to be too free and looks like he is learning astrology. He is only predicting the removal of Yediyurappa since the past few months. But there is an issue of change in chief minister in the BJP," Somasekhar said.

He said, "The chief minister has handled the Covid-19 crisis and other issues ably. Union Home Minister Amit Shah himself has lauded the chief minister in this regard. Yediyurappa will be CM for the remaining term of the government for two and a half years. Amit Shah has reiterated this. So there is no need for Siddaramaiah's certificate".

Mangaluru, Jan 18: APD Foundation - Hasiru Dala is organizing ‘Namma Netravathi, Namma Javabdari’, a unique campaign at Netravathi Bridge to create awareness and prevent people from discarding waste into the Netravathi River. This initiative is being supported by Mangaluru City Corporation and Ullal Nagara Sabha. 

This campaign also aims to help reduce plastic pollution in the ocean. The campaign is spread over six days from Monday, 18th to Saturday 23rd of January, 2021 from 6am to 9am. Large number of volunteers from different organizations will assemble along the bridge at daybreak every day to create awareness among the people to desist from dumping waste into the river. Many activities including forming ‘human chain’ are planned. 

Rayappa, Commissioner of Ullal Nagara Sabha participated in the campaign on Monday, 18th January, 2021. Many other officials and people’s representatives are expected to participate in this campaign. “I appreciate this effort to create awareness on cleanliness and prevent pollution of Netravathi River. I will participate in this campaign every day and I shall also take strict action against the violators,” Sri Rayappa said. 

‘Boskyorbs’, a volunteer youth group who have been undertaking anti-pollution activities at Bengre side of Netravathi River, actively took part in the campaign. “Most of the trash that we collecting while cleaning the Netravathi River at Bengre originates from Netravathi Bridge,” said the members of Boskyorbs team. Sri Sheena Shetty, the director of Jana Shikshana Trust, and Mohammed Fauzan Shiek, an activist volunteer better known as ‘Big Bang’ too supported and participated. Nagraj Ragav Anchan of Hasiru Dala and Vanishree B. R. of APD Foundation coordinated the campaign. 

APD Foundation - Hasiru Dala have identified hotspots around Mangalore where waste is entering the waters and where residents are indiscriminately disposing waste. The discarded waste includes household garbage, meat waste, fruit and vegetable waste from vendors and markets. The water pollution can easily be avoided if every stakeholder takes it as their own responsibility to protect Netravathi, the lifeline of Mangaluru. ‘Namma Netravathi, Namma Javabdari’ seeks to bring the citizens together and protect the Netravathi.

“Netravathi River is the lifeline of Mangaluru city. 
Cooperation of every citizen is needed to keep it pollution free. It is very important that people stop throwing waste into the river. We urge all citizens to stop this unhealthy practice of throwing waste which will eventually the reach sea,” said Abdullah A. Rehman, CEO and Founder of APD Foundation.

Nalini Shekar, co-founder of Hasiru Dala, said: “Water resources are precious for a community’s survival. As our consumption increases, the waste also increases and so does our responsibility for its appropriate disposal. Integrating and practicing sustainable living is the next step."
