Bhadrakali bund works yet to be completed 21.1.2018
Warangal: The works of the Bhadrakali tank bund which is said to be developed under the Smart City mission and HRIDAY schemes have not been moving forward as expected. The Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation has allocated Rs 14.50 crore in 2015 with a plan to develop it along the lines of Hussain Sagar tank bund in Hyderabad. During the same year, the tank was selected to be revived under the Mission Kakatiya program to increase its capacity. Funds to the tune of Rs 4.5 crore were also sanctioned. However, these works never took off.  The tank serves as the drinking water source for Warangal city and surrounding areas. When the Mission Kakatiya works are to be conducted, the tank was filled with water through the Devadula project for the drinking water needs. As a result, the works could not be done.   The tank located behind the Bhadrakali temple in Warangal provides a beautiful environment and scenic view for the devotees.  According to the proposals, the Bhadrakali tank"s bund ...

Govt mulls tougher norms to protect heritage sites 21.1.2018 DNA: India
To protect ancient monuments and archaeological sites in Maharashtra, the state government is planning to impose curbs on constructions in the periphery of these areas. Now, there are no firmly defined "controlled areas" or statutory buffer zones around the 370 state protected monuments in Maharashtra. These monuments include the Gateway of India, Banganga, Worli fort and August Kranti Maidan in Mumbai, forts like Rajgad and Sinhagad, temples and religious places, caves, graves, and pre-historic and chalcolithic sites like those at Ambad in Jalna. A senior state government official told DNA they were planning to amend the Maharashtra Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1960, to create statutory buffer zones around these areas which would be no-go areas for construction and development. Stronger legal provisions will prevent the historic and archaeological values of these monuments from being compromised and ensure their conservation, he added, stating it was not uncommon to see ...

Battleground k'taka: Kalaburagi will make every candidate sweat and sweat for a win 21.1.2018
The Tur Bowl of Karnataka is boiling hot and it"s not because of the soaring mercury which sometimes crosses the 40 degree mark. The Assembly election, now barely four months away, is set to witness a pitched battle between the ruling  Congress and the opposition BJP with the JD(S) too gearing up to prove a point that it can"t be wished away. It"s not going to be a cakewalk for the Congress this time after it won seven of the nine Assembly seats in Kalaburagi in 2013, demolishing the saffron party which had to contend with a split down the middle with veteran B.S. Yeddyurappa walking out to form his KJP.  The political scene has drastically changed and though it"s still a bit too early to make predictions, a tough race is no doubt on the cards.  Yeddyurappa is straining every sinew to prove he has lost none of his clout over the Lingayats and at the other end, Congress veteran Mallikarjun Kharge is keen to assert himself as the undisputable top leader of ...
