Mysuru, Oct 20: Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (KRRS) president Badagalapura Nagendra on Tuesday urged the Union Government to declare the devastation caused due to rain and floods in north Karnataka districts as national disaster and compensate the affected people immediately.

Speaking to newsmen here on Tuesday, he said the State and Central government should change their indifferent stance and help the thousands of people in the ravaged districts, particularly those in north Karnataka.

He threatened that farmers will stage protests at all the district headquarters on October 23 to press for the fulfilment of their demands.

He said that north Karnataka has been facing a famine like situation because of frequent floods in the last three years and people have lost their property and crops. The Centre should change the national disaster relief fund policy and pay compensation in a scientific manner. The fertile lands that have been rendered useless should be made irrigable again. The pending payment to sugarcane growers must be settled without any delay. The government should bear the college fees of students from rural areas, he added.

Stating that since the Narendra Modi government came to power, it announced a minimum support price thrice, but in reality, the farmers are not getting it. BJP leaders are boasting that amendment of APMC Act will help the farmers but what is happening is exactly the opposite. MSP for jowar was fixed at Rs 1,830 per quintal but farmers are getting only Rs 1,200. The same is the case with groundnut, cotton, ragi and paddy. The central and state governments, it seems, have no money to buy the agriculture produce from the farmers, he alleged

Udupi, Oct 19: The Udupi district police have filed a charge-sheet against two siblings from Moodbidri accusing them of hacking the social media account of NRI Harish Bangera and posting provocative posts from it.

Harish Bangera, 33, from Beejadi in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district was jailed in Saudi Arabia since December 2019 for insulting religious sentiments and abusing the Saudi royal family through Facebook. Harish was an AC mechanic working in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Before his arrest by Saudi police, Harish Bangera had confessed to his crime and posted a video on social media apologising for his act. He also had promised that he would never commit the same mistake again. The confession and apology video is still available on social media platforms.

However, Harish’s wife Suman had claimed that her husband is innocent, and that the posts on Facebook were uploaded by others hacking his account. She had suspected foul play in her husband’s arrest in Saudi.

Based on her complaint, the Udupi police had arrested Abdul Uais and Abdul Tuves, siblings from Moodbidri in Dakshina Kannada district.

Udupi superintendent of police N Vishnuvardhana said that they recently filed a charge-sheet in connection with the arrests made. Meanwhile, they have also submitted a report to the ministry of external affairs in this regard.
