Digivijaya, KPCC chief defend Siddu on Arkavathi row 25.1.2015 deccanherald.com
Defending Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on the Arkavathi layout row was a full-time job for some Congress leaders on Saturday. Party leader and AICCGeneral Secretary Digvijaya Singh and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president GParameshwara jumped into the fray and went on the defensive. Singh came down to City late on Friday evening on an unscheduled visit. He held a meeting with chief minister and KPCC president on Saturday morning at the Kumara Krupa guesthouse. Siddaramaiah is understood to have apprised Singh about the Arkavathi issue. Singh is also learnt to have taken stock of the political situation in the State. However, the Congress dubbed Singh's visit a private one. What surprised many in the political circles is the support Siddaramaiah received from Parameshwara on the issue.

Comment on govt F'book page to vent grievance no offence: SC 25.1.2015 deccanherald.com
It is not an offence for any person to post grievance on a page created by a law enforcement agency on a social networking site as such an interface is meant to help the public, the Supreme Court has held. The court quashed an FIR against a Bangalore couple who had failed to get relief from Karnataka High Court after they were booked by Bangalore Traffic Police for posting their grievance over misbehavior by a cop on a Facebook page created by it. "As far as the comments posted on Facebook are concerned, it appears that it is a public forum meant for helping the public and the act of appellants in posting a comment on Facebook may not attract ingredients of criminal intimidation in Section 503 IPC. "As noted earlier, the page created by the traffic police on Facebook was a forum for the public to put forth their grievances. In our considered view, the appellants might have posted the comment online under the bona fide belief that it was within permissible limits," said a bench of justices V Gopala Gowda ...
