Udupi, June 24: Deputy Commissioner G Jagadeesh has strictly warned those misusing the unlock guidelines in the district, and said that they will be booked under the epidemic act.

In his video message on Thursday DC Jagadeesh said, “In Udupi district, the state government has allowed some relaxation, even though the COVID scare is still there. It is everyone’s responsibility to follow the COVID guidelines announced by the government. Many people are found to be misusing the unlock guidelines which will not be tolerated”.

The state government has not permitted to organise any public functions in the district, but still, many programmes are being organised. Various organisations and political parties are organising protests across the district. Who permitted them to organise such programmes in the district? DC questioned.

The district administration has not given any permission to organise any public functions. The organisers are playing with the life of the people. Rules are equal to everyone, whether they are rich or poor. When the peoples’ representatives follow the rules, others will automatically follow them. Henceforth we will not tolerate those organising such programmes. If anyone is found organising any programme without the permission of the concerned authorities, they will be booked under the Epidemic act, he warned.

Bengaluru, July 25: Over 500 Veerashaiva-Lingayat samijis from different parts of Karnataka on Sunday demanded that Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa, whose exit appears imminent, should be allowed to continue in office.

On a call given by Balehosur Math seer Dingaleshwara Swami, Rudramuni Swami of Tiptur and Basavakumar Swami of Chitradurga, the seers organised a conclave at the Palace Grounds and passed a resolution in favour of Yediyurappa.

Dropping a hint about his continuation in the office, Yediyurappa had said on July 22 that the party central leadership is going to issue a direction to him by Sunday evening, which he would abide by.

Speaking on the occasion, Dingaleshwar Swami said it was not proper to remove the chief minister.

"It is not proper to remove Yediyurappa. We have congregated here to boost the morale of the chief minister. We are neither in favour or opposed to anyone. Our sole objective is to see that the Chief Minister, who is doing a good work, should be allowed to continue," he added.

A seer attending the event said the politicians bring reforms in the administration while the seers role is to bring reforms in society as well as the individuals.

However, when a politician is doing a good job, he should not be removed, he said, adding that it is the responsibility of the pontiffs to pressurise the party leadership to heed to them, he added.

Mangaluru, Aug 2: A small group of commuters from Kasaragod district staged a demonstration at the interstate border at Talapady on the outskirts of Mangaluru city today to register their protest against the fresh entry restrictions implemented by Dakshina Kannada. 

The district administration of Dakshina Kannada had strengthened the border surveillance following the rise in Covid-19 cases in Kerala.

Accordingly, only those with covid-19 negative reports were allowed to enter Dakshina Kannada from Monday.

Meanwhile, students from Kerala studying in various colleges coming under Mangalore University jurisdiction who had their UG exams were allowed to enter the district by showing their hall tickets.

Others, who did not have RT-PCR negative reports, were sent back from the border.

Following this, a group of people from Kerala staged a protest at Talapady and demanded that people should be allowed to enter Karnataka based on their vaccination status.

Following the state government’s direction, Dakshina Kannada district had strengthened the surveillance at the border. Deputy commissioner Dr K V Rajendra K V and manglauru city police commissioner N Shashi Kumar visited the border in Talapady on Monday to enforce government directions effectively.

In fact, Dakshina Kannada health department was collecting swabs to conduct RT-PCR/ RAT on interstate commuters at Talapady.

However, that arrangement was also stopped on Monday. This led to tension at the border after people from Kerala opposed the move and held a protest.

They demanded that those who have received two doses of vaccines too should be allowed to enter Dakshina Kannada.

Dakshina Kannada administration has suspended bus services between Dakshina Kannada and Kasaragod in Kerala from August 1 to 7.

Dakshina Kannada has been witnessing spike Covid-19 cases in the past few days. On Sunday, the district had recorded the most daily cases in Karnataka.
