Mangaluru, Oct 20: KIOCL Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Subba Rao on Tuesday said that after obtaining statutory clearance for operation of Devadari mines, the company had been planning to set up 2.0 MTPA beneficiation and 2.0 MTPA pelletisation plant, which will generate employment for the local youth.

Union Minister of State for Steel, Faggan Singh Kulaste also visited Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited (KIOCL) and reviewed its performance.

The Union Minister also studied efforts made towards implementation of new projects and the bottlenecks faced during the execution of projects.

The minister in turn emphasised that KIOCL has done pioneering work in the field of iron ore mining and beneficiation of magnetite ore in Karnataka and is a leader in the country for pelletisation. He further stressed that the centre is placing thrust on increased utilisation of pellets as a raw material in blast furnaces and sponge iron industry in the country. KIOCL can contribute immensely in utilising these resources in the national interest.

The minister lauded the efforts made by KIOCL in entering the field of solar energy and the setting up a 5 MW solar power plant in Tumakuru district.

Bengaluru, Oct 12: K Sudhakar, who will take over over as the Health Minister of Karnataka amidst his predecessor B Sriramulu’s failure to handle covid-19 situation, today said that he would focus on bringing Covid-19 under control and work towards decreasing the fatality rate in the state. 

“My first priority is to bring Covid-19 under control, reduce death rate and make sure people get easy treatment,” said Mr Sudhakar, who also holds medical education portfolio.

According to Sudhakar, the Health and Medical Education Departments are interrelated. “Technically, they are one. It was to be handled by one person. But, in 2000, the two departments were separated as the then Cabinet had too many members. That has been set right now,” he said. 

Sudhakar said Sriramulu was not sulking as he is likely to get social welfare portfolio. “He’s not disappointed. Social welfare is a big department with an outlay of over Rs 25,000 crore. I believe he wanted this portfolio in the past,” Sudhakar said. 

Sriramulu, who already holds the backward classes welfare portfolio, is expected to take up social welfare that is currently handled by Deputy Chief Minister Govind Karjol. Apparently, making Sriramulu in charge of social welfare is being seen as a politically-significant move as he belongs to the ST (Valmiki) community and will be able to connect with them directly. 

A formal notification on the change in portfolios is expected later in the day.

Bengaluru, Oct 21: Senior BJP Leader and former Karnataka Minister K S Eshwarappa on Wednesday urged party State President Nalin Kumar Kateel to suspend Yatnal without giving notice seeking explanation for his statement that Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa will not continue in his post for a long time as the party Central leaders have decided to remove him very soon.

Stating that the party will take disciplinary action against Yatnal, he said that "I urge Nalin Kumar Kateel to remove him (Yatnal) from the party without giving notice seeking explanation".

Talking to newsmen here, Eshwarappa alleged that he (Yatnal) attended the State working Committee meeting held recently in the city and though he (Yatnal) was also present, he did not speak anything against the Chief Minister. "But now to get cheap publicity, he is making a statement which is far from the truth. disciplinary action should be taken against him and the party will deal at the appropriate time."

Eshwarappa said that Yatnal is repeating his statement several times. However, he should have learnt by this time that repeating a false statement will not change the party's stand on what is true. There was no move to change Yediyurappa and just because Yatnal is claiming so and repeating it frequently the party's stand will not change.

Meanwhile, party State president Kateel has in a tweet stated that there is no possibility of changing Chief Minister and Yediyurappa will continue to be the head for the remaining three year period.
