MP writes to CM, seeks end to Metro confusion 24.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Bangalore Central MP, P C Mohan, has written to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah expressing concern over the deviation from the Phase 2 detailed project report "completely derailing the whole process" of providing metro connectivity to citizens. Stating that the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) was changing the alignment "without any technical evaluation", the BJP parliamentarian disputed the reasons given for the change of the Cantonment metro station's location. Rejecting the BMRCL's claim that railways had issued a rule stating that metro tunnels must be 30 metres under the ground at railway stations, he said: "Railways have confirmed that the tunnel under KSR (Bengaluru City) railway station is passing just eight metres under the ground. This 30-metre rule cited above is only to mislead the public," the letter states. The MP also noted that the Delhi Metro lines with over 2-km-long tunnels pass below 40 metres in thickly populated areas such as Rajiv Chowk. He said the BMRCL's idea of ...

Activists rebut BMRCL's logic behind shifting Cantt Metro station 24.9.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizens and activists keen on integrating Namma Metro with the railways at Cantonment have slammed the BMRCL for "fear-mongering" and issued a point-by-point rebuttal of the reasons given by it for shifting the proposed metro station away from the railway station. The original detailed project report (DPR) had placed the metro station opposite the Cantonment railway station. In June, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) moved it to Madina Masjid ground near Bamboo Bazar, about 1 km away. Asking BMRCL officials to "stop fooling Bengaluru", the activists released a document, backing their arguments with evidence of technical specifications from other metro networks in the country. BMRCL Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola had said on Thursday the original alignment had extreme curvature of 90-degree radius, which would slow down the trains to 30 kmph from 100 kmph. "Also, the original alignment stretches the distance between Cantonment and Pottery Town to 1.8 km. This is not advisable ...

70% helpline queries are not security-related: CISF 24.9.2017 DNA: Money
Attending calls on its helpline number has become a task for the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) that manages the security of the Delhi Metro. As many as 70 per cent of the calls received by the Force are related to recruitment in CISF, train timings, about the airport metro line, or other issues, and do not pertain to security. The problem has become so manifest that the Force is also planning to launch a new direct helpline soon. According to data, out of a total of 6,228 calls received this year so far on the helpline number, more than 4,200 were not security-related issues. Senior officers say the menace has just become bigger over time but the Force is coping with it and all the callers have been directed to the concerned authorities to ensure adequate help. "From recruitment queries to train timings and from airport line connectivity to queries about banned and prohibited items, our men handle all kinds of calls in a day. Majority of them are related to metro timings and routes," said a ...

Runaway kid is now kickboxing champ 24.9.2017 DNA: India
Shivalak Raj reaches the practice ground sharp at 6 am daily, to polish his moves. The 27-year-old is preparing for his first international kickboxing championship — the World Kickboxing Championship, 2017 — to be held in Budapest, Hungary, from November 3 to 12. It is difficult to believe that this world-class sportsman ran away from his home nearly two decades ago, only to make it to the national kickboxing team. Raj, who hails from the Madhepur village in Bihar, has a Black Belt in karate and has won 25 gold medals at national level, and five gold medals and two silver medals in international karate championships. He started kickboxing in 2010. Again, he won a gold medal at the 18th national kickboxing championship in 2011. But no medal has made him forget his past. "I was about seven years old. My stepmother rebuked me all the time. We were poor and my father used to run a small grocery kiosk. He sent me to work at a judge's house as domestic help in exchange of a small piece of farm land.

State invokes ESMA to check garbage crisis 23.9.2017 deccanherald.com
In the wake of garbage contractors threatening to disrupt waste collection in Bengaluru, the state government on Saturday invoked ESMA, prohibiting pourakarmikas and other staff from going on strike for the next one year. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah directed the Urban Development Department to invoke Section 3 of the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA), which empowers the state government to crack down on protests and strikes that disrupt public services. All pourakarmikas, auto tippers, compact loaders and drivers employed directly by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) or through contractors cannot strike work for the next one year. The ESMA provision covers both pourakarmikas under contract as well as those on the civic body's rolls, BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad clarified. The move comes months ahead of the 2018 Assembly elections and at a time when the state government and the BBMP are facing the heat from the public over the recent rain-related chaos. A garbage crisis now, in ...

A 38-year-old man reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself from the handrail in a stationary private near the Magadi Road metro railway station, West Bengaluru, on Friday.
