Bengaluru, Sept 29: The Department of School Education Research and Training (DSERT) has prepared standard operating procedure (SOP) for re-opening of schools in Karnataka.

Even though the state government is yet to decide on the reopening of schools anytime soon, the DSERT has come up with the SOP on how to conduct classes, if at all the Centre allows reopening of schools for the current academic year--2020-21, officials said on Tuesday.

As per the SOP prepared, there shall be one meter distance between every student and the classes should be conducted in shifts.

''This does not mean we are reopening the schools. Instead, this would only be a suggestion on procedures to be followed in case if the Centre allows us to open."

Further, despite the Centre's direction to open up the schools for 'consultation' spanning a few hours to address academic queries, the Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education department did not even permit the schools to allow students to visit campus .

However, the state government schools are functioning under the Vidyagama Scheme where teachers would go to the doorstep of students and teach them. At the same time, the private schools have been engaging kids via online classes.

Mysuru, Oct 27: Karnataka's Cooperation Minister S T Somashekar on Tuesday had a foot-in-mouth moment as he accidentally called Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa a "villain" while addressing media persons.

However, he quickly apologised for the slip of his tongue and said, “What I meant to say is that those who cause problems to the government are villains. I meant to say that 'the CM is a hero'."

His slip of the tongue was in response to a question by media persons. “Former CM Kumaraswamy says ex-CM Siddaramaiah is a villain. Siddaramaiah says he is not a villain, but a hero. Is Siddaramaiah a hero or a villain?”

To this, he replied, “Neither of them is villain, Yediyurappa is the villain”.

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.

Vijayapura, Oct 20: Karnataka Chief Minister will soon be changed as most senior leaders in the state are not happy with BS Yediyurappa, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Basangouda Patil Yatnal has said.

"Chief Minister will be changed soon as most of the senior leaders in the state are not happy with BS Yediyurappa. PM Modi also said that the next Chief Minister will be from North Karnataka," Yatnal said at a public gathering in Vijayapura on Monday.

He said that Yediyurappa became the Chief Minister after the people of North Karnataka elected 100 MLAs of the BJP to power. "Mandya and other South Karnataka districts didn't make him Chief Minister," Yatnal said.

Earlier, eight times MLA and senior BJP leader Umesh Katti had said that he does not want to become a minister in the present government; instead, he wants to become the Chief Minister of Karnataka from North Karnataka region.

Notably, Umesh Katti, Basangouda Patil Yatnal, Murugesh Nirani, Ramesh Katti, CP Yogishwar, Rajugowda and many others had held secret meetings against Yediyurappa leadership at unknown locations in the state multiple times earlier this year.
