Bengaluru, July 23: The Janta Dal (Secular) and Congress that had joined hands together in Karnataka ‘to keep communal forces at bay, have once again turned archrivals. The development comes a year after the collapse of JD(S)-Congress coalition government in the state.

Recently, Leader of the Opposition Siddaramaiah claimed that the Congress would have won at least 10 seats in the Lok Sabha elections had it not been for the alliance with the JD(S). In response, former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy of the JD(S), who headed the coalition government, blamed the Congress for its many 'conspiracies'.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Kumaraswamy said he was prompted by Siddarmaiah's claims to recall what transpired during the coalition government. 

"There will never be a future alliance with Congress," Kumaraswamy declared, in a letter to his party colleagues on Wednesday. He claimed that there were many conspiracies on part of Congress, which led to the fall of the coalition government.

Bengaluru, Sept 27: Karnataka Minister for Tourism, C T Ravi on Sunday said that he was ready to resign the Minister post and devote himself to strengthening the party whenever the party instructs.

Speaking to newsmen here, he said that his main objective will always be party organization.

"I was not expecting the post of BJP general secretary. I have never worked with any aspiration. Party loyalty and hard work is my principle. I have always handled all responsibilities handed to me," he added.

Talking to reporters after being elected as National General Secretary of the BJP, Ravi said that he could never accomplish what late leader Ananth Kumar has but will try to reach the heights reached by him. Such a chance is only possible in our party. I will be working in Stat-level and will not be working with the party in Delhi. My first priority will be party organization.

Speaking on the bandh called by some farmer organisations Ravi said: “If ten traders come to the farmers’ doorstep to buy their produce then it is good for the farmers. Farmers will get a fair price. I request all farmers not to fall prey to politically motivated actions. Congress itself had promised this in their manifesto. Why are they opposing it now?”

Abu Dhabi, Sept 15: A Mangaluru-origin youth is part of an international research team that has developed a tool to keep track of the mutations of the Covid-19 virus.

Elston Neil D'Souza, the youngest member of the team led by University of Melbourne associate professor David Ascher, helped create the tool called Covid-3D, which harnesses genomic and protein information about the virus. He was a former resident of Abu Dhabi.

The changing structures of the virus make it challenging for experts to develop drugs and vaccines; so by monitoring these mutations, Covid-3D becomes an important instrument in the fight against the pandemic.

During the research, D'Souza and his team analysed more than 120,000 samples of the novel coronavirus from infected patients globally. D'Souza, with eight others, co-authored the research paper, which has been peer reviewed and published in the scientific journal 'Nature Genetics'.

"With the large amounts of data collected and shared across the world, this pandemic has seen the use of innovative techniques such as genomic sequencing, machine learning and data-sharing. We developed Covid-3D using this vast amount of data," said D'Souza, an alumnus of Adnoc Schools, Ruwais. He has finished his degree in computational biology at the University of Melbourne and he is now doing another course.

"This tool is an open and freely accessible Web resource that can help researchers around the world."

D'Souza graduated from Adnoc Schools in 2016 and he attributes a large part of this success to the quality education he received in the Capital. "I am grateful for the many opportunities to learn and grow when I was a science student at Adnoc Schools. I thank the UAE for showing me the importance of working hard with a diverse group of individuals," the 22-year-old added. His parents are still residing in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.
