Temple not the only grabber of lake land, say revenue officials 10.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The monumental task of moving the 62-foot-tall statue of Hanuman from Kolar to Kacharakanahalli has brought this obscure Bengaluru neighbourhood and its dead, encroached lake to the fore. The 750-tonne statue is being set up by the Sri Rama Chaitanya Vardhini Trust near the Kodandarama Swamy Temple in Kacharakanahalli. According to M K Jagadish, Assistant Commissioner, Bengaluru North subdivision, the temple and the proposed statue were located on a lakebed. The temple, its two choultries, an Isckon goshala, a BDA layout and a slum are among the many occupants of the 56-acre plot in Survey No 153, still listed as government lake in revenue records. Jagadish said that about 26 acres of the land, part of the lake, now formed a BDA layout. The other properties are spread over around 10 acres while approximately 20 acres of land is vacant. He said that in 2015, under the then Bengaluru Urban commissioner V Shankar, the administration made its first attempt to reclaim the government property. "We cannot ...

DPAR sits on sanction to prosecute revenue officials in land scam 31.3.2018 Deccan Herald - News
The Department of Personnel and Administrative Reforms (DPAR) is delaying giving sanction to prosecute seven revenue officials for illegally transferring government land to private individuals. The file on the prosecution sanction has been cleared by the Revenue Department and is pending with the DPAR. The government land in question - over 10.4 acres in total - is in survey number 105 at Doddathogur village, Begur hobli, Bengaluru South taluk. In January 2016, the Upalokayukta sent two reports directing the Revenue Department to immediately restore the government land and recommended action against the errant officials. The department endorsed the Lokayukta report and forwarded it to the DPAR for sanction to take action against the officials. "The prosecution sanction has already been delayed by a year. In the meanwhile, the government has not taken any action to reclaim the land in question," said Adarsh R Iyer, of Janaadhikaara Sangharsha Parishath, the NGO which filed the complaint before the ...

What we want in poll manifestoes 30.3.2018 Deccan Herald - Opinion
What do we want in election manifestoes? Grandiose dreams? Or will the political parties include a shadow budget to show how much money is actually required to actualise those dreams, how they will raise those resources? Current manifestoes and budgets are devoid of crucial details, making them just castles in the air that are meant to give false hopes to the public. What do we want from the winning party after elections? Civil Society Forum, a coalition of 33 organisations and individuals asks for the following: all basic human rights and entitlements, such as food, water, housing, child care, education, health, employment and social security should be universalised and delivered by the State. Long- and short-term vision plans should be drawn up and the budgets required for universalising these within time-frames should be earmarked through a law. Once a party gains power, will its representatives hide themselves from us for five years or will they institutionalise mechanisms by which they will face the ...

Leaders aspiring to contest the polls have started doling out freebies such as sarees, hotboxes and even ISI-mark helmets to woo voters.

Congress kicks off city campaign, targets BJP with charge sheet 22.3.2018 Deccan Herald - Breaking News Rss Feeds
The ruling Congress on Wednesday kick-started its 'Namma Bengaluru, Namma Hemme' (Our Bengaluru, Our Pride)  padayatra as a counter to the BJP's recently concluded 'Bengaluru Rakshisi' (Save Bengaluru) foot march. While the saffron party's padayatra was to highlight the Congress' misrule in Bengaluru, the Congress foot march aims to extol its contributions to the city and showcase corruption that prevailed in the civic administration when the BJP was in power. The Congress chose to launch its campaign in the KR Puram Assembly constituency, represented by Byrathi Basavaraj who is known to be C
