Cong will disappear from Karnataka like other states: Javadekar 27.3.2018 General News
Union minister Prakash Javadekar, the BJP's in-charge for Karnataka polls, today claimed the Congress will "disappear" from the state like it has from other parts of the country and accused the Siddaramaiah government of being "anti-farmer and anti-poor". On a day the Election Commission announced May 12 as the polling date in the state, Javadekar claimed that the people there are eager to throw out the Congress government due to its "divide and rule policy". "The BJP is confident of a victory. Their game is divide and rule. They are anti-poor and anti-farmers. People don't appreciate such policies. The Congress will disappear from the state as it has from other parts of the country" he told reporters.

Shortage of funds forces BDA to take up PRR project in phases 13.3.2018 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) would build the long-delayed Peripheral Ring Road in phases since it is unable to muster funds to implement the project in full. In the first phase, it would lay the 18-kilometre stretch between the existing Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE) toll road junction on Tumakuru Road to the Kempegowda International Airport. Taking up the project in full would cost the BDA Rs 11,950 crore and the bulk of that amount - Rs 8,100 crore - would go towards acquiring 1,810 acres and 18.5 guntas of land. Despite holding several rounds of meetings with the investors, the agency found it harder to muster the sums needed for the full project. The Japanese agency JICA agreed to fund only the cost of constructing the road network. "Since we had difficulties getting Rs 8,100 crore for land acquisition, breaking up the project into phases made sense," a BDA official said, wishing anonymity. "Were working out the modalities of the first phase, which would cost us Rs ...

Kheny's induction ticks off families of Kharge, Dharam 10.3.2018 Deccan Herald - News
The families of veteran Congress leaders Mallikarjuna Kharge and (late) N Dharam Singh, which wield significant clout in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, are upset with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah over the induction of businessman Ashok Kheny into the party. The ruling Congress has received much flak from various quarters, including from within, ever since Kheny was formally welcomed into the party last week. Kheny is the promoter of the controversial Bengaluru-Mysuru Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project. He represents Bidar South constituency, from where Dharam Singhs son-in-law Chandra Singh is a ticket aspirant, in the Assembly. Singhs family has formally registered its protest against the "unilateral" decision to rope Kheny in. Singhs elder son and MLC Vijay Singh led a delegation to AICC general secretary incharge of Karnataka K C Venugopal to express their discontent. The delegation strongly urged Venugopal not to give Kheny the party ticket in the upcoming polls. Apparently, Chandra has been ...

Cong questions BJP's 'silence' on proposed state flag 9.3.2018 General News
The ruling Congress today questioned the BJP's "silence" on the proposed official state flag for Karnataka, a day after it was unveiled by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah ahead of the assembly polls. It also asked whether BJP MPs, including the state party chief B S Yeddyurappa, will put pressure on the Centre in getting necessary approval for the flag. "Lacking in #KannadaSwabhimana, @BJP4Karnataka maintains pindrop silence on #KarnatakaStateFlag," the Congress' Karnataka unit said in a tweet. "Will BJP MPs & Shri Yeddyurappa put pressure on the Union BJP Government to quickly grant the necessary approvals?," it asked.

The law and order has completely collapsed," Yeddyurappa told reporters. He said the chief minister claimed that his government was number one. But it seems the government is number one is in terms of atrocities on women and breakdown of law and order in the state, the BJP leader said. "It seems Siddaramaiah is running the government like a Tughlaq darbar. We have to bear it for two months," he ...

Cong open to inducting more, winnability is key factor: Parameshwara 8.3.2018 General News
Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President G Parameshwara has not ruled out induction of a few more members from other parties to fight the upcoming assembly polls, days after three MLAs joined the party fold. At the same time, he said the winning potential of the candidates who want to join the party will be the key factor for gaining entry. Three MLAs -- B S Anand Singh (BJP MLA representing Vijayanagar), B Nagendra (independent MLA representing Kudligi) and Ashok Kheny (Karnataka Makkala Paksha MLA from Bidar) -- were inducted in recent weeks, sparking criticism from the opposition that the Congress was roping in all "tainted" leaders as a desperate measure. Parameshwara, however, rejected the possibility of inducting mining baron and former minister from the BJP, G Janardhan Reddy. In an interview to PTI, Parameshwara said that the party is all geared up for the polls and its candidates are likely to be announced by end of the month. "Winning each seat is crucial ...

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said the state government will take proper steps after studying the Legislature Committee report on BMIC and will not spare NICE promoter and MLA Ashok Kheny if the panel recommended action against him.
