'JD(S) will have no pact with any party for Assembly polls' 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
JD(S) leader HDDeve Gowda has reiterated that his party will have no understanding with the Congress or any party for the 2018 Assembly polls. Gowda on Friday said there were media reports that the JD(S) will enter into an understanding with other parties to face the elections. There is no truth in it. The party will field candidates in all the 224 Assembly constituencies, he added. Gowda chose to address the media at SDM Hospital, Mysuru Road, where he is admitted for naturopathy treatment. He was admitted five days ago and would stay there for the next couple of days. The JD(S) leader said the party has decided to keep away from both the Congress and the BJP. The JD(S) would aim at winning a minimum of 115 seats. Then alone can HDKumaraswamy become the chief minister and waive farmers' loans, he added. He claimed the party could not contest the Nanjangud and Gundlupet byelections due to financial constraints. There are several examples to show how regional parties have done well in Assembly elections ...

Not just tuition fees, financial aid too rise at IIMs 27.4.2017 Business Standard: Management & Mktg
If you find fees at the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) high, think twice. While most of the IIMs may have hiked tuition fees of their flagship post graduate program in management as well as agri business programs and executive programs, financial aid to students in various forms have also risen at the premier B-schools. As per the four IIMs that Business Standard reached out, cost on extending financial waivers have risen at most of the campuses, with IIMs now incurring more than what they earn from fees. Take the IIM Ahmedabad for instance, which spends Rs 7-8 crore for providing fee waiver to candidates from financially weaker sections, thereby supporting over one-third or 34 per cent of the batch. IIM Bangalore (IIM-B), on the other hand, incurs an annual cost of Rs 6-7 crore for financial aid and benefits on an average 60 students or roughly 15 per cent of the PGP batch and another 10 students from the executive programs. Under its Financial Aid Policy, IIM-B extends ...

VK Sasikala's banner removed from AIADMK HQ after Dinakaran's arrest 27.4.2017 DNA: Opinion
After the midnight arrest of AIADMK's Amma faction deputy general secretary TTV Dinakaran on charges of fixing a deal to bribe Election Commission officials, the banners of his aunt and jailed party general secretary VK Sasikala in the party headquarters were removed on Wednesday morning setting the stage for commencement of the reunion talks between two warring factions. The removal of the banners indicates Sasikala and her clan loosening the grip over the ruling AIADMK, if not losing complete control of the party. Dinakaran, who was expelled from AIADMK by late Jayalalithaa along with Sasikala and other family members in 2011, was re-inducted into the party with a plum post of party deputy general secretary by his aunt, hours before leaving for Bengaluru to serve the remainder of her sentence in the disproportionate assets case. She handpicked Edappadi K Palaniswamy as the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. The Panneerselvam camp's 'Presidium Chairman' E Madusudanan had on Tuesday made a demand to "uphold the ...
