US budget cuts will reduce aid to developing countries by up to 70%; disaster for world's poor: Rockefeller Foundation President Rajiv Shah 17.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Aid to help developing countries fight poverty, hunger, disease and climate change is likely to fall 50 to 70 percent under proposed U.S. budget cuts, a "disaster" for the world's poor, the president of The Rockefeller Foundation has warned. Closing the expected gap through private or charitable spending looks unlikely, added Rajiv Shah, who ran the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2009 to 2015. If the 15 largest U.S. foundations, including giants such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, combined their donations, the total would not match the cuts proposed just to USAID funding by President Donald Trump's administration, Shah said. "This is not the kind of problem philanthropy can step in and solve - or should," he said. "These are public-sector responsibilities." But philanthropists can play a key role in restoring badly eroded public faith in aid spending, by tracking results and proving investments work, he said. They can also push money into ventures - such as off-grid solar ...

Rahul Gandhi launches subsidised Indira Canteen 16.8.2017 deccanherald.com
All India Congress Committee vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday launched state government's flagship programme Indira Canteen, subsidised food outlets that provides breakfast at Rs 5 and lunch and dinner at Rs 10, at Kanakanapalya in Chickpet Assembly constituency. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had announced to open 198 canteens in all wards of the city. However, only 101 canteens started functioning on Wednesday as the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) faced hurdles at several wards after the residents and citizens groups raised objections for opening canteens at civic amenity sites. Lauding the state government's programme, AICC vice president said that Indira Canteen is designed to make sure not a single person goes hungry in the city. He added that the facility is another step towards 'food for all' commitment of Congress. Indira Canteen is targeted at the poor and daily wagers who cannot afford two meals a day, he said and asked the state government and the BBMP to maintain cleanliness ...

Karnataka saw opening of over 100 Indira canteens in Bengaluru, which would offer subsidised food for the urban poor, as Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is looking to consolidate his urban voter base ahead of assembly elections next year.Siddaramaiah, a mass leader, has so far been blamed for focusing on rural Karnataka, at the cost of the state capital, which generates two thirds of the taxes. The government's neglect of the city's infrastructure was evident on Independence Day, when parts of South Bengaluru saw homes flooded with overflowing drainage, following heavy rains in the city. The highly polluted Bellandur lake has been spewing again affecting traffic in the locality.Even with the first phase of Bengaluru Metro operational, the city is still notorious for its bumper to bumper traffic, with vehicles in main arteries driving at less than 10 kmph.With startups rationalising staff or shutting down due to funding crunch and uncertainty in the export focused IT services firms, ..
