On Jan 2 2021, the newsrack service has been shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it was time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

This is an archive of previously crawled content that will be kept around for a few weeks.

Governor: Krishnappa's continuation as housing minister untenable 17.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Governor Vajubai Vala has objected to the continuation of M Krishnappa as housing minister on the grounds that his name figures in a land scam. The Governor on Wednesday wrote a letter to this effect to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, according to sources in the Secretariat. Former corporator N R Ramesh of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had complained to the Governor that the minister had committed irregularities in acquisition of agricultural land in Vajarahalli and Raghuvanahalli off Kanakapura road in Bengaluru South taluk. He had raised questions about Krishnappa's continuation as minister. Based on the complaint, the Governor sought an explanation from the chief minister about what action he would take against Krishnappa, it is said. The division bench of the Karnataka High Court had in April quashed the acquisition of 189 acres of land for a housing cooperative society in Vajarahalli and Raghuvanahalli. The court had held that the land was acquired by middleman M Krishnappa, who is now housing ...

The Anti-Corruption Bureau on Friday conducted simultaneous raids on the houses and offices of five officials in Bengaluru, Kalaburagi and Tumakuru.
