Anganwadi centres oppose Matru Poorna, stage protest 9.8.2017 deccanherald.com
Anganwadi workers and assistants staged a protest at Nehru Maidan in Mangaluru on Wednesday against the introduction of "Matru Poorna" scheme in Dakshina Kannada district. The scheme aimed at providing nutritious food to pregnant women to fight against malnutrition and prevent maternal and infant mortality. Taluk Sahitya Parishat president Vijayalakshmi B Shetty said that the scheme was not suitable for Dakshina Kannada district. "Pregnant women are taken care at home in the district by providing them nutritious food. In such a scenario, women will not go to anganwadi centres to have food. Further, anganwadi centres are functioning from a small building where there is lack of facilities to cook food for pregnant women," Vijayalakshmi said. Anganwadi Workers and Assistants' Association state president Jayalakshmi B R said the scheme was beneficial for a backward district such as Raichur and would not be successful in Dakshina Kannada district.

Lands Corporation MD keen on protecting government land 6.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Managing Director of Karnataka Public Lands Corporation Limited (KPLC) Dr N V Prasad on Thursday categorically instructed the officers to clear encroachment of government land. Presiding over the meeting held at the deputy commissioner's office in town, Prasad directed officers to look into the disputes over such properties that are now before various courts and take further action. The focus should be on identifying government land and fence such sites with government funds released for such work. In the case of otherwise, it would become difficult to find land for anganwadi centre buildings, schools, hospitals and hostels. It is therefore the prime responsibility of officers, irrespective of cadre, to be cautious in protecting government land, said Prasad. Survey work Deputy Commissioner Dr Richard Vincent D'Souza said, "The tahsildar has been directed to launch survey work on the disputed sites and take actions on protecting the same." R Nagaraj Shetty, special officer of the corporation, said most of ...
