BMRCL proposed to acquire land where jumbo attacked CRPF men 7.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The land in the Bhuthanahalli reserve forest, where two CRPF men were trampled to death by a wild elephant on Sunday, was the topic of a heated debate at a high-level meeting held in the Vidhana Soudha on Friday. The meeting was attended by officials from the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) as well as Forest and Urban Development departments. The BMRCL had proposed to acquire the land for setting up a depot for Metro trains. The elephant and its companion — a sub-adult tusker — had reached the reserve forest after crossing the Roerich and Devika Rani Estate, which is spread over 14 acres. The territory between the estate and the CRPF camp, which the BMRCL has proposed to acquire, is an elephant corridor. The corridor has been notified for over two decades as it connects elephants migrating to Tamil Nadu and back, a senior forest official, who attended the meeting, said on condition of anonymity. The Forest Department strongly objected to the BMRCL's proposal but officials from ...

Turf war over upkeep of Soudha buildings reaches Cabinet 4.5.2017 deccanherald.com
The tussle between the Public Works Department and the Legislative Assembly secretariat over the latter's decision to take over the maintenance of the Vidhana Soudha, Suvarna Soudha in Belagavi and ownership of several prominent buildings has now reached the state Cabinet. The PWD had recently submitted an eight-page, detailed note to the Cabinet section, urging the Cabinet headed by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to take an appropriate decision on the controversial move of the Assembly secretariat. The department has clearly stated that there is no legal provision for the Assembly secretariat to take over the maintenance of these buildings. The Cabinet note, a copy of which is available with DH, said there is no provision under the Karnataka government (transaction of business) rules, 1977, and the Karnataka government (allocation of business) rules, 1977, to allow the legislature to do any maintenance work. Unless these rules are amended, neither the Upper House nor the Lower House of the legislature can ...

Once a cinema hub, Gandhinagar no longer a draw for movie business 16.4.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Gandhinagar, the hub of the movie business in Karnataka, has lost its appeal to the industry. For decades, Kannada films vied for cinema halls in the bustling business district in the heart of the city. But with the advent of multiplexes and the razing of single-screen halls, Gandhinagars prestige is sliding into history. In recent years, the number of theatres in the area has come down from 20 to 7. The area is just across the city bus and railway stations, and it was easy for the thousands visiting the city to hop across, catch a film, eat at one of the many famous eateries, and take the last bus or train home. Those glory days are gone. Sagar, Prabhat, Alankar, Tribhuvan, Majestic, Kailash, States, Geetha, Sapna, Menaka, Mayura, Kempegowda, Prashanthi and Aparna have shut down. "It was easy to carry reels from one theatre to another. That is one of the reasons a cluster of halls came up in Gandhinagar," said Sa Ra Govindu, president, KFCC. Another reason was that the distributors and exhibitors had ...
