Bengaluru, Sept 26: Hardliner BJP leader and Member of Parliament from Bengaluru South Tejasvi Surya has been appointed new president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), party's youth wing.

Surya will replace another BJP MP Poonam Mahajan as the president of the BJYM.

The 29-year-old lawmaker won the 2019 Lok Sabha election by defeating Congress' B K Hariprasad by over 3 lakh votes.

Surya was an active member of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and was even the general secretary of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM).

The BJYM, like the BJP has a similar structure, with a President, Vice Presidents, General Secretaries, Secretaries and Executive members, with the National Executive being the highest decision making body of the BJYM. At the state level, a similar structure is in place.

Many prominent BJP leaders including Kalraj Mishra, Rajnath Singh and Shivraj Singh Chouhan have been the national presidents of the BJYM in past.

Bengaluru, Oct 22: Karnataka Chief Minister, who conducted an aerial survey of the flood affected four districts of north Karnataka on Wednesday, said on Thursday that this time the severity of damage due to floods is massive and the Centre has been apprised about the situation and need for more funds to take up relief works effectively.

Talking to newsmen before attending a cabinet meeting at the state Assembly, the State Secretariat, here on Thursday, Yediyurappa said that due to inclement weather he could not visit Vijayapura for the survey.

"The flood situation this year has been much more severe compared to the previous years. Houses and crops have been damaged, and we have apprised the Centre about it. There is a need to give more relief," he added.

He said a decision to give more relief to the flood affected people will be taken in the cabinet meeting.

On Wednesday, Yediyurappa, accompanied by Minister for Home Basavaraj Bommai and Revenue Minister R Ashok, made an aerial survey of Kalaburagi, Yadgir and Raichur districts where the overflowing Bhima river has wreaked havoc for the past nine days.

He said that the army and personnel of the National and State Disaster Response Forces did yeoman service by helping the affected in the region. Underlining that there is no dearth of funds, he said that already Rs 10,000 has been paid to the affected as immediate relief and more funds towards compensation for the loss of crops and house will be given to the affected in the coming days.

According to the Karnataka Disaster Management Authority commissioner Manoj Rajan, 247 villages have been identified as vulnerable while 43,158 people in 136 villages have been evacuated in the four flood hit districts. The district administration has opened 205 relief camps where 37,931 people are staying.

Mangaluru, Oct 18: The city police and vigilantes of Bajrang Dal today intercepted a truck and seized 2,500 kg of beef that was being transported in it. Police also nabbed two persons who were transporting the meat ostensibly from Hubballi to the city.

Acting on information given by Bajrang Dal, personnel from Kankanady Town police station intercepted the truck near Kannur-Padil and seized the vehicle.

Deputy commissioner of police (law and order) Arunangshu Giri said the carcasses of slaughtered cows were hidden behind plastic trays containing fish. The lorry was coming to the city via Hassan when police intercepted it, he added. This is the second such incident in the last week. On Tuesday, personnel of Mangaluru north PS too had intercepted a vehicle in which 1,000 kg of beef was being transported illegally.

Sharan Kumar Pumpwell, divisional secretary of Vishwa Hindu Parishad said the new modus operandi used by those into illegal cattle slaughter and meat trade is a disturbing development. “This is precisely the reason why the VHP has urged the city police commissioner to set up a special squad,” Sharan said. “We are passing information on any such illegal movement of meat into Dakshina Kannada district to the police for them to take action,” he added.

Bengaluru, Oct 17: Janata Dal (Secular) leader and MLC Basavaraj Horatti has urged the Karnataka government to not open classes for students up to Class 7 during this academic year to ensure the safety of students in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and declare 2020-2021 zero academic year.

Speaking to media persons here today, Horatti said classes must be conducted batch-wise for students from Class 8th to 10. Besides, students of pre-university and first-grade colleges are not kids and their immunity power would be high. So, colleges could be opened, he suggested.

More than 250 teachers have tested positive for Covid-19 and around 70 teachers have died.  "Is there a government in the state?" he questioned.

Referring to the Vidyagama scheme, he said the government is of the view that around 47 lakh students have benefitted from it. But in reality, not even 5% of students attended classes.

Horatti said that food items that should have been distributed to students were rotting in godowns and the government's apathy was responsible for this. He urged the government to initiate action against the officials concerned.

On the New Education Policy, he said the Centre must collect opinions from the states before implementing it. Except for the point that education must be given in mother tongue, the remaining factors are in favour of the BJP and not the education sector, he said.
