Without naming any particular organisation, Mr. Siddaramaiah, while addressing a gathering at Surathkal before winding up his day-long tour on Thursday, said that the government was not appeasing any community. He said the State government believed in equality for all. “We believe in inclusive growth,” he said.

Mr. Siddaramaiah said that the socio-economic survey report would be released next month.

He also laid the foundation stone for three projects on the occasion. The projects are: Mangaluru City Corporation's zonal office building at Surathkal at a cost of Rs. 2.25 crore; upgrading Surathkal Junction-MRPL Road up to Surathkal railway bridge (240 metres) as a six-lane road at a cost of Rs. 2.75 crore and provide makeshift arrangement to 87 shops of Surathkal market at Kendra Maidan at a cost of Rs. 1.70 crore to facilitate the construction of a new building at the existing market place.

The chief minister also hailed the local MLA Mohiuddin Bava and said that representatives of the people should be active like him. Recalling the confusions while finalising a candidate for Mangaluru North constituency during last assembly polls, the CM said that he had trusted and supported Mr Bava.

“Today Mr Bava has won the hearts of the people of this constituency. He will continue his good works and win the next assembly polls too,” Mr Siddaramaiah said.

Earlier, the Chief Minister laid the foundation stone for a Konkani museum at Shakthi Nagar. The museum would be constructed at a cost of Rs. 30 crore.

Hassan, June 23: An earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale shook parts of Hassan district and neighbouring regions in south Indian state of Karnataka in the wee hours of Thursday, a disaster management official said.

The earthquake was also felt in many villages near Somwarpet in Kodagu district. People ran out of their houses following the tremor.

According to Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority Commissioner, Manoj Rajan, the epicentre was Maluganahalli village under Nagaranahalli village panchayat in Holenarasipura Taluk of Hassan district.

He said as per the seismic intensity map of the said earthquake from the epicentre, the intensity observed is moderate and the tremor may be felt up to a maximum radial distance of 40-50 kms from the epicentre.

“This type of earthquake does not create any harm to the local community, although there might be slight shaking observed locally. As the epicentre falls in Seismic Zone-II, the chances of occurrence of earthquakes is very less and the possibility of damage is low.

"As the region is void of any structural discontinuities as per the tectonic map, the community need not panic as the intensity observed is moderate and not destructive,” the commissioner explained.

Mandya, June 21: JD(S) MLA M Srinivas allegedly tried to slap a college principal several times in full public view for not providing prompt answers about the ongoing work at a computer lab.

The ugly incident came to light after a video had gone viral that showed the Mandya MLA purportedly making several attempts to slap the Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar ITI College principal Naganand.

Huge public outrage is pouring in on the social media against Srinivas for his misconduct.

The video purportedly depicts the MLA scolding and trying to slap him twice before his college staff and local politicians.

The principal appears to be in trauma and astonished while the onlookers are trying to pacify the MLA.

Meanwhile, the Government Employees Association on Tuesday took cognizance of the incident and pledged to bring it to the notice of Deputy Commissioner.

The association convened an emergency meeting and collected details of the incident. The members including association president Shambhu Gowda met the victim and assured him relief.

Mangaluru, June 28: Karnataka Home minister Araga Jnanendra has directed the Dakshina Kannada district police and the Mangaluru city police, to conduct station-level surveys of foreign nationals, who have overstayed their visas, and foreigners who have intruded, and are staying in the district without any valid documents.

He directed that the survey report should be submitted at the earliest. “It will take some time for the police to complete the survey. Recently in Bengaluru, illegal foreigners were arrested, and sent to the detention centre. A few have even obtained ration cards and voters’ identity cards,” he said.

Araga said that the law and order situation under the DK police and Mangaluru city police was satisfactory.

Since the conviction rate is low in DK, and the city police limits, the minister held a meeting with public prosecutors and assistant public prosecutors, to ascertain the reasons for the low percentage of convictions.

“There are issues related to the shortage of staff, and cases coming for trial after two to three years. There are several instances of witnesses turning hostile, and sometimes issues are solved through compromise. In some cases, the conviction rate is 12% to 13 % only,” he said.

“A similar meeting was held in Chikkamagaluru recently, and I have directed the SP and commissioner of police to work in coordination with the public prosecutors,” Araga said.
