BJP warns of protests if govt organises Tipu Jayanthi 21.10.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The state BJP on Saturday opposed the state government's decision to organise Tipu Sultan Jayanti celebrations on November 10, accusing it of triggering communal hatred. BJP general secretary and MP Shobha Karandlaje told reporters that the party will launch a protest if the government goes ahead with the celebrations. There is a strong opposition to the Jayanthi celebrations from many communities, including Christians and Nayakas, she added. Karandlaje said that she had written to the deputy commissioners of Udupi and Chikkamagaluru, asking them not to mention her name in the invite for the Tipu Jayanti celebrations in the two districts. Terming Tipu Sultan "anti-Hindu and anti-Kannada", she said, "There is no need to include the names of BJP leaders in the invitation on the pretext of following protocol. The government is triggering communal hatred by repeatedly organising Tipu Jayanthi. The government is misusing the taxpayers' money. Let it organise the Jayanthi using the Congress party's funds," she ...

Shias allow BBMP to demolish mosque wall to widen road 21.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Members of the Shia Muslim community here have given their nod to the city corporation to demolish a wall of a mosque to widen a road. "We do not want to give any trouble to the people of Bengaluru and the state government. We have decided to give away a portion of the mosque space, including the wall of our mosque (for road widening)," Masjid-E-Askari and Shia Graveyard managing committee president Mir Ali Jawad told PTI. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagar Palike (BBMP) will carry out the demolition tomorrow in presence of Mayor Sampath Raj and Congress legislator N A Harris and other officials, Jawad said. The BBMP had planned to widen the road to ease traffic congestion about five years ago, but could not do it as the previous mosque managing committee was not interested in the proposal, he said. The new committee took up the matter and agreed to allow the BBMP to use some space, including a wall of the mosque, for road widening, he said. Jawad said the committee has applied for Transfer of Development ...

Sleuths of the Central Crime Branch (CCB) shot at a history-sheeter in the leg after the latter attacked the police in a bid to escape on Saturday. The incident occurred at Soladevanahalli, North Bengaluru, in the morning. The injured rowdy, Raja Dorai (24), is a resident of Sanjaynagar in Old Baiyappanahalli.

Every tree in Bengaluru needs surgery, says city's 'green' doctor 21.10.2017 Karnataka
Environment Tree surgeries extend the lives of trees, improve the aesthetics and allow sunlight to fall on more parts of the tree. Cubbon_park_Flikr_Yair_Aronshtam.jpg Flikr/Yair Aronshtam In an attempt to conserve trees in Bengaluru, former Senior Assistant Director of Horticulture, S Narayanaswamy has advocated for tree surgery to be performed on every tree in the city. Tree surgery, a term used to describe the maintenance of trees by removal of dead, dried and diseased branches to preserve a balanced canopy, started in India in 2000, when Narayanaswamy introduced the idea in a national seminar. “I went to Europe and I saw that the trees there are in very good stature. This got me thinking about arboriculture and the idea of having an arborist for the city. Arborists are sort of like your doctor for the trees. They will know when to remove branches and how to trim the tree,” said Narayanaswamy, who is now retired from the Horticulture Department of the Karnataka government. Tree surgeries extend the ...

Watch: Cockroach in Indira Canteen meal 21.10.2017 deccanherald.com
The Siddaramaiah government has ambitiously pushed the Indira Canteen, a chain of government-run canteens that provide food at subsidised costs, to cover a large area in Bengaluru and is planning to expand to other areas in Karnataka. The government also prides itself in the quality of food and hygiene of the kitchens as well. However, today, a bug has crept into the governments grand plan. In a video that surfaced today on the Facebook page Fight for Right, a man is seen recording a plate of food in an Indira canteen, which has a cockroach in it. The video, 1:38 minutes in length, shows a blurry, but recognisable image of the dreaded bugs, a cockroach and what appears to be a fly in a plate, with a Kannada caption, saying "Adding cockroaches to food, Indira Canteen is giving non-veg to people". According to sources, the canteen in question is in Kottigepalya, ward 73. The video can be seen ...
