Officials of the KSPCB said that over one third of the Ganesha idols immersed in the city's lakes this time are PoP idols. Over 2.65 lakh mud idols of Ganesha also have been immersed in those lakes.

Earlier KSPCB Chairman Lakshman revealed that there were around 50,000 PoP idols in the market in different parts of Karnataka including 35,000 in Bengaluru alone this time. According to manufacturers, the idols sold in the market were old stock and they have sought permission to clear them this year.

The KSPCB has banned the use and immersion of PoP idols in water bodies. The action followed a notification issued by the National Green Tribunal in 2013. The NGT?had ordered pollution control boards to conduct a study on pollution caused due to immersion of PoP and coloured idols and ban them under Section 33 of The Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution)?Act, 1974.

Bengaluru, July 25: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said on Sunday that a decision on whether he will continue in office or not will be known by tomorrow, but asserted that he would continue to work for the BJP for the next 10-15 years.

The 78-year-old Lingayat strongman said this evening that he was yet to receive the "message" from the party's central leadership on whether he should continue in his post or quit.

He expressed confidence that the communication may come by tonight or be known on Monday morning.

Yediyurappa said he had offered to resign two months ago and reiterated that he would he would continue in the post if the high command so desired and quit if they asked him to resign and go about doing party work.

"I will work for the party day and night for the next 10-15 years. Let there be no doubt about it", he said.

He said he will speak on the achievements of his government at a function, as planned earlier, on Monday.

"After that, other things you will come to know". On what he would do if the "message" does not come from the high command, Yediyurappa said "I will take a decision then".

Earlier, speaking to reporters at the district headquarters town of Belagavi, he said he would abide by the decision of the high command, that he was "content and satisfied" and would not cross the disciplinary line.

"I got most of the positions in the party, which no one else might have got in Karnataka, for which I express my gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and party president J P Nadda", Yediyurappa said.

He said he has the "lone target" of toiling for the next two years and bringing the BJP back to power in Karnataka, where Assembly elections are due in 2023. Yediyurappa agreed with BJP national general secretary C T Ravi's statement that everyone in the BJP was an ordinary party worker and he would abide by the party's instruction.

"He is 100 per cent right. We will not exceed the disciplinary line. We have been following it and would do so in future as well", the Chief Minister said.

KGshenoy.jpg

Mangaluru, Aug 3: Karkala Govinda Shenoy, 86, former Chief Manager of Syndicate Bank, passed away on Tuesday, 3rd August, 2021 at his residence ‘Laxmi Vaman’, Warehouse Road, Mangaluru following age related illness. He is survived by his wife Tara Shenoy, two daughters Smt. Sangeetha Pai and Smt. Preethi Nayak, and a son Sri Damodar Shenoy. His eldest son Dr. Manjunath Shenoy had predeceased him. Due to Covid protocols, his last rites were performed in the presence of only immediate family members at Boloor Crematorium, Mangalore at 4:00 pm.

Popularly known as 'K.G. Shenoy', he was born on 23rd September 1934 at Agumbe and graduated (B.A. Hons) from Maharaja's College, University of Mysore.  He joined Syndicate Bank in July 1959 and retired from the bank in March 1990 at Manipal as Chief Manager. During his banking career, he had headed the Industrial Finance Department of the bank at Mumbai and was the Secretary of the bank's Local Loans Committee at Mumbai. He had participated in training programmes in Small Industries at Hyderabad, Secretarial Practice at the Institute of Secretaries and Banking Practice with Reserve Bank of India and National Institute of Bank Management (NIBM).

Basically hailing from a family of passenger transport fleet operators, Sri K. G. Shenoy had a lifelong association with the automobile industry of the region. The Motor Gadi Transport Service (MGTS), a well-known firm founded by his late father, Sri Appu Rao alias Manjunath Shenoy in Shimoga District, were the pioneers in this field in the Agumbe Ghat Section. After retiring from Syndicate Bank, he joined Arvind Motors, Mangalore in 1992 as Sales Manager. From 1999, he was associated with Maroor Agencies as their Honorary Advisor.

Since 1992, he has been actively associated with Dakshina Kannada Automobile & Tyre Dealers Association for nearly three decades, serving first as the association’s Vice President and later as its Patron. When the Association decided to have its own building 'Auto Bhavan' at Maroli, Sri K. G. Shenoy spearheaded the building project which was completed in March 2011. He was also the Editor of the Association’s quarterly newsletter ‘Auto Sandesh’ and its annual souvenir. He was actively involved in the formation of Federation of Karnataka Automobile and Allied Industries Associations in Bangalore in 1999 and was unanimously chosen as its President for two years from 2003 to 2005. He also enjoyed very good rapport with the Federation of All India Automobile Spare Parts Dealers Associations (FAIASPDA), New Delhi.

In recognition of his exemplary service to the automobile and auto spares industry Dakshina Kannada Automobile & Tyre Dealers Association had honoured him with ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ during its Annual General Meeting on 26th Day of October, 2013.

Dakshina Kannada Automobile & Tyre Dealers Association has condoled the demise of Sri K. G. Shenoy. “In the sad demise of Sri K. G. Shenoy, we have lost our mentor, guide and a most active personality who has built our Association stronger over the last three decades,” said Kasturi Prabhakar Pai, the Association President in a statement.

K. G. Shenoy was the President Elect of the Rotary Club of Mangalore North during 1981 and President of Rotary Club of Vishakhapatnam Main during 1987-88. He has widely travelled in India and abroad, having visited Sri Lanka, Hawaii, USA, Canada, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
