Mangaluru, Feb 28: Minister of State for Primary & Secondary Education Suresh Kumar said here on Sunday that the academic year 2020-21 was a very challenging as the COVID-19 has disrupted the whole education system and still it is uncertain when the schools will reopen and life becomes normal.

Speaking after inaugurating Reshma Memorial Auditorium at Shakthi Campus, he said it is good that the teachers have found an alternative of Vidyagama and online classes, saving the students from wasting the whole year.

He requested the educators and the parents to create social awareness and social responsibility in the minds of students rather than insisting in marks alone.

He quoted the effort of teacher Nirmala, responsible for the success of Anjanappa hailing from the rural background who scored 92 pc in SSLC, 131 rank in CET, 91 rank in JEE and today pursuing his studies at IIT Mumbai.

Vedavyas Kamath, MLA Mangaluru south, who was also present, said, "Life is a race no doubt but passing in life is utmost important than winning a race."

He shared his views on the 17 crore swimming pool project coming up in Yemmekere for the public as a part of the smart city project.

Sri Mahabaleshwar, chairman Karnataka Bank, quoted the four strong pillars that make up a school, namely the students, teachers, parents and the management. The co-ordination of all the four is very vital, failure to which the consequence is uncertain, he said.

Mangaluru, Apr 2: The High Court of Karnataka has disposed of a public interest litigation (PIL) on the assurance by the state government that no entry point between Kasargod and Dakshina Kannada district will be closed.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice  Abhay Shreeniwas Oka was hearing the petition filed by Subbayya Rai, an advocate challenging the order passed by the Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada restricting entry from several entry points in view of Covid-19.

During the hearing, the government assured the court that clause 3 of the recent order dated March 15 issued by the Deputy Commissioner of Dakshina Kannada district will not be acted upon. The clause authorized local authorities such as gram panchayats to close checkposts which are rarely used.

Initially, the petition was filed challenging the February 18, 2021 order passed by the Kasargod Deputy Commissioner, who is also the chairman of the District Disaster Management Authority. By this order, all entry points, except four, were closed for all kinds of traffic.

The bench said that as per the orders passed by the National Executive Committee, inter-state and intra-state travel cannot be restricted. Any localised restrictions could be imposed, pertaining to the production of RT-PCR test results while entering the state of Karnataka, the court said.

The petition said restrictions imposed by the Dakshina Kannada district administration had affected more than 80,000 people living in the border areas of both states.

Bengaluru, Apr 5: The Supreme Court on Monday stayed the criminal proceedings against Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa and others in a land denotification case.

A bench of Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian suspended the operation of the High Court's order of March 21 which restored the criminal case.

The special court had refused to proceed against Yediyurappa in the 10-year-old illegal land denotification case. The HC, however, set aside the trial court's order.

It directed the special court to take cognisance of offences against him, and proceed further on the basis of the charge sheet filed by the Lokayukta Police in 2012.

The complaint in the case was filed by M Alam Basha.
