Bengaluru, Nov 28: The Sadashivanagar police have registered a criminal case against the Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa's political secretary N R Santosh for allegedly attempting to kill himself in his Dollars Colony residence by consuming sleeping pills on Friday night.

According to a senior officer, the case has been registered under IPC section 309. "We are going to question Santosh after he recovers and further necessary action will be taken," the officer added.

Santosh is suspected to have consumed more than 10 sleeping pills around 7.15 pm. He was rushed to MS Ramaiah hospital where he is undergoing treatment in the ICU.

The police are tight-lipped about the reason behind the extreme step of Santosh. There are rumours that Santosh was under depression over political and also personal issues. His wife Jahnavi, while speaking to media persons, said Santosh was disturbed over political issues. He returned home around 7 pm and went to his room. He looked like he was worried about something.

"After sometime when I went to ask him what he would like to have for dinner, I noticed he was feeling drowsy, the pills strip was lying next to him. Sensing something wrong we rushed him to the hospital," she said.

Bengaluru, Nov 23: Karnataka on Monday allocated a whopping Rs 500 crore to the newly-formed Karnataka Veerashaiva-Lingayat Development Corporation (KVLDC).

Chief Minister B. S. Yediyurappa had only last week announced that such a body will be set up in the state.

His decision was preceded by the decision to set up a Maratha Development Authority (MDA). However, it had got an allocation of just Rs 50 crore.

The push for the KVLDC came after a group of Lingayat community ministers and MLAs led by Deputy Chief Minister Laxman Savadi met Yediyurappa, who is considered the tallest political leader of the community, and urged him to form this corporation.

According to these leaders, even though Lingayats form 17 per cent population in Karnataka and have made a significant contribution in the state, the community has a substantial number of poor people, who eke out a living by working as labourers.

Yediyurappa’s decision on the MDA comes ahead of the announcement of bypolls to the Belagavi Lok Sabha constituency, as well as Basavakalyan and Maski assembly constituencies, which have a sizeable Marathi-speaking population.

However, this announcement had not gone down with a section which questioned why the Karnataka government should set aside money for Maratha development. So much so, a state-wide bandh has been called by pro-Kannada organisations opposing this decision.

Since the formation of these two boards/corporations, there have been several representations made by many other communities in the state to the CM urging him to set up respective welfare boards.

Former Chief Minister and JD-S leader H. D. Kumaraswamy on Sunday called for a similar board/corporation for Vokkaligas, another politically dominant community like the Lingayats.

To give students an insight into future competitive exams, irrespective of the field they pursue, CFAL is conducting an All-India level Scholarship Exam, Mangalore Talent Search Contest (MTSC) on December 06, 2020.

 The objective of this exam is to identify students who have the ability to clear National and international level exams, and also give them exposure to the kind of questions asked in these exams.  The last time India gave the PISA test in 2009, only students from Himachal Pradesh and Tamil Naidu attended the test and it ranked 72nd among 73 countries. Since then, there are a lot more changes done, and the current NEP is one of the steps to improve the quality of education in the country. India will try to give the PISA test in 2021 and probably will be restricted to the students of KV, Sainik schools and the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya. The MTSC gives exposure to students on the kinds of questions that are asked in those exams, its test the student’s critical thinking, logical reasoning, approach and concepts at various levels. It will be a centre-less exam, meaning that test takers do not have to go anywhere and can attend it from the comfort of their houses.

Students are required to register for free on www.learn.ignus.in, after which a User ID/password will be sent to them. To familiarize students with the test module, access will also be given to the previous years’ question papers once a student registers.

The questions will test the knowledge in Environmental science, Mathematics, Logical Reasoning for Class 5th and 6th  and students of Class 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th will be tested in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Logical reasoning. The Top students will be eligible for prizes worth Rs. 1, 00,000/- and scholarships to various programs at CFAL. All the registered students will also receive career guidance and mentoring sessions on how to prepare for other national level exams.

With India preparing to appear in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2021, exams like TIMSS and PIRLS and the New Education Policy emphasising on students’ participation at International competitions like Olympiads, examinations like MTSC aim to give students the right exposure to prepare them for such contests. MTSC will help students determine their strengths and understand where they stand at the national level, besides it also helps schools address their areas of improvement and suggest ways on how they could improve to help students succeed in International exams.
