More Central funds soon: BS Yediyurappa 6.10.2019
Hubballi: Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said here on Saturday that the state expected more funds from the Union government to help rebuild the lives of those who had lost their homes and crops in the recent floods, and Rs 1,200 crores received recently was only an "interim relief." Speaking to reporters after offering bagina at the Almatti dam on Saturday, he said the release of funds had silenced the critics, who had been targeting the Union government on the issue. "I am confident more funds will be allotted soon to Karnataka by the Centre. I will bring more pressure on it to release the money," he promised. Denying the allegation by former CM H D Kumaraswamy that  PM Narendra Modi was not giving  him an appointment to discuss the flood issue, he said he would get the required work done even without meeting him.

Wildlife board nod for anti-green project 6.10.2019
Bengaluru: Last month, the State Board for Wildlife granted permission to carry out pre-construction works and conduct Environmental Impact Appraisal for Sharavathy pumped storage project (8x250 MW project) in Shivamogga and Uttar Kannada districts by Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd. The project site near Gerusoppa village is an underground power house, where 2,000 MW hydropower unit will be installed and the balance storage water from Talkalale dam will be used. During off peak demand for electricity, surplus electricity will be used to pump water from lower Gerusoppa reservoir to upper Talakalale reservoir. Former forest officer B.K Singh has termed the project disastrous. "As the state is not power surplus, the proposition is not viable. The project is said to be utilising 150 hectare of forest land, which is estimated to go up to 200 hectares once the works proceed. The project will cause fragmentation and more human imprint in such pristine forests. At the UN Convention on Climate Change, the ...
