Move to divert MML funds for farm loan waiver triggers row 14.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
In a setback to the state government, employees of Mysore Minerals Limited (MML) have opposed diverting its surplus funds to cooperative banks to meet Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's commitment of waiving farmers' loans. Getting the profit-making MML to deposit its investible surplus funds of Rs 1,400 crore with the Karnataka State Cooperative Apex Bank Limited is one way the government is looking to capitalise cooperative banks to make up for the Rs 8,165 crore waiver of short-term loans that 22.27 lakh farmers had borrowed. Depositing funds with cooperative funds is not feasible, the Mysore Minerals Employees' Association has stated, while painting a gloomy future ahead for the company. About 90% of the company's mining operations have been stalled due to environmental regulations and 2,422 employees have left the workforce since 1998, with over four-fifths of the existing 900 employees due to superannuate in the next three years, the Association pointed out.

Plea to Centre to stop state from reducing deemed forest area 13.10.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The former chairman of the Western Ghats Task Force, Anant Hegde Ashisara, sought the intervention of the Central government in protesting deemed forests in Karnataka. "Karnataka had nearly 10 lakh hectares of deemed forest in 2002, which was reduced to five lakh hectares in 2014-15. The state government plans to further reduce the deemed forest for allowing non-forestry activities. Therefore, we urge you to take up the matter with the state government to ensure no more reduction in the deemed forest area in future," he said in a memorandum submitted to Union Minister for Forests, Environment and Climate Change Harsh Vardhan. "Since revenue lands with features of forests and having 50 trees per hectare are identified as deemed forests, there is an urgent need to preserve them for the livelihood security of millions of people." The state government had allocated 1,000 acres of deemed forest to the University of Agricultural and Horticultural Sciences, Shivamogga. This land should be retrieved from the ...

Farmers of the district, who have been staging an indefinite protest for the past four days against illegal mining activities and demanding the release of water from Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) and Hemavathy reservoirs for summer crops, warned the government of staging a 'Jail Bharo' protest if their demands are not met.

"If it fails to respond to the protest, it would become inevitable to stage a 'Jail Bharo' on October 17," he said. Pointing out that drought and insufficient rains are due to illegal mining activities, he said the district in-charge minister should convene a meeting and release water to all the canals under KRS and Hemavathy limits to enable farmers to take up cultivation of crops.
