Diddalli row: Tribal leaders divided over rehabilitation 29.4.2017 Deccan Herald - District
A day after the row relating to Diddalli tribals appeared to near end, tribal leaders were a divided lot. On Saturday, affected tribals were yet to decide on moving to the sites identified by the district administration. Tribal leaders GKMutthamma and GKAppaji fulminated both the activists and district administration for taking them for a ride. "Some of the activists are trying to divert the cause by themselves sending Swamy and Anita as representatives to the meeting chaired by DeputyCommissioner Richard Vincent D'Souza at his office on Friday," Mutthamma alleged. "Nirvanappa, who is a self-declared convener of Bhoomi Matthu Vasati Hakku Vanchitara Horata Samiti, is also trying to mislead tribals, while advocate A KSubbaiah has asked the tribals to go by district administration's words," the leaders said. The duo vouched to take the issue to none other than Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with a delegation of displaced tribals, seeking his help in rehabilitating tribals at the Devamucchi forest area ...

Diddalli tribals agree to shift to new locations 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
In what appears to be a truce, the five-month-long protest of Diddalli tribals ended with the displaced 528 tribals agreeing to abide by the words of the district administration. The apparent truce followed the tough stance taken by Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa, who took stock of the situation by visiting the disputed site at Devamucchi forest in the district recently. The minister, who had alleged a political conspiracy behind the contentious issue, had refused firmly to rehabilitate the tribals in the forest area. Kagodu had, instead, instructed the tribals to relocate to sites identified at three places in Virajpet and Somwarpet taluk in the district. Change of stand Intermittent rainfall, accompanied by winds and lightning, also had smoothened the hard stand of the tribals, who were forced to spend days make-shift tents with rainwater seeping in. Buoyed by this, Deputy Commissioner Richard Vincent D'Souza has also promised to distribute title deeds within a week to the beneficiary tribals for ...

Officials rapped over poor utilisation of NREGA funds 24.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Chamarajanagar MPRDhruvanarayan, on Monday, expressed displeasure over the dismal record of fund utilisation under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA) in the district. During the District Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee (DDCMC) meeting held at the Zilla Panchayat auditorium here, he said, the district is in the sixth place in the state while Belagavi and Ramanagaram districts stand first and second respectively. According to the authorities, the district has spent Rs 104.58 crore. While Mysuru taluk has spent only Rs 6.48 crore with the last place in the district, HDKote tops the list by spending Rs 29.03 crore.

The MPsaid, in the prevailing drought situation, the authorities can easily spend a minimum of Rs 50 lakh in every GP. "Mysuru district has 235 panchayats. So, the officials should utilise the funds to take up works like lake ...
