Speaking to media persons here on Tuesday, he noted that Mr Kulkarni could have conducted a review meeting of officials regarding the development of the twin cities, instead of attending a meeting on Lingayat separate religion issue in the City recently. Sri Shivakumar Swamiji of Tumakuru Siddhaganga Mutt has already clarified that Veerashaiva and Lingayat are the same, and there is no need to question this as he is the supreme seer, only next to Basavanna, Mr ...

Holiday rush: private bus operators fleece commuters 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - City
As the holiday season begins, private bus operators are fleecing commuters as the transport department continues to sit on a proposal to cap fares of buses plying on city, mofussil areas and inter-city routes. For private buses, long weekends and festival holidays are lucrative as they can double and triple the fares. The usual sleeper class fare to Hubballi from Bengaluru ranges between Rs 600 and Rs 2,000. But it goes up to Rs 4,000 on festival days. "Those who do not reserve tickets are at the mercy of the staff operating the bus, who jack up fares depending on how desperate you are to get a ticket. The government rules exist only on paper," said Ishwar Heggeri, a computer operator in a private company who travels to Dharwad twice a month. Stage carriage permits allow buses to pick up passengers from different places between the origin and destination points. Though the transport department has capped the fares of all city and intercity buses by notifying fare caps in 2013, no private bus follows the ...
