The mystery behind the death of Karnataka cadre IAS officer Anurag Tiwari, who was found dead on the road in Uttar Pradesh capital city Lucknow last month, deepened after heart failure was ruled out as a possible cause of death. According to the police sources, the report of the histopathological examination of Tiwaris heart, which had been preserved along with his viscera and blood for chemical analysis, said that the officer did not suffer from any heart-related ailment.

With govt schemes, farmers had no reason to protest: CM 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday patted himself, claiming that farmers in the state did not resort to violent protests as his government had initiated several measures for their welfare. Unlike Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh, where the farmers staged violent protests, farmers in Karnataka did not agitate. This shows that the government is pro-farmer and that programmes being implemented by it have helped them, he said, replying to a debate on demand for grants in the Assembly. Leader of the Opposition Jagadish Shettar said Karnataka stands second in the country in the number of farmers' suicides. "Why are farmer ending their lives in large numbers? This shows that farmers are in distress. The government did not take any measures to stop suicides." Members of the ruling party and the principal Opposition BJP charged each other with neglecting farmers and blamed each other for all their woes. "Farmers were killed in Haveri soon after B S Yeddyurappa took oath as chief minister in 2008. You (BJP ...

BJP claims credit for farm loan waiver 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The Opposition parties on Wednesday said the state government's decision to waive crop loans up to Rs 50,000 will bring "very little relief" to farmers and demanded that the amount be raised to Rs 1 lakh. "We had anticipated loan waiver up to Rs 1 lakh. The decision to waive loans up to Rs 50,000 procured from co-operative societies is not a big achievement," said BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa. He said the government was forced to waive loans due to pressure mounted by the BJP. "The decision is an indication of the government's plans to go in for early Assembly polls." Union Minister D V Sadananda Gowda echoed similar views. " It's not a big help. Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Punjab governments have waived loans up to Rs 1 lakh." Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Jagadish Shettar termed the government's decision a victory for the consistent efforts by the BJP. Siddaramaiah should not transfer the financial burden to the next government. The Congress government should bear all the burden, ...
