BJP govt in Maharashtra more generous to Karnataka in water release' 6.5.2017 deccanherald.com
Union Minister Ananth Kumar said on Saturday that wherever the BJP was ruling, the government was pro-people. Addressing the executive committee meeting of the state BJP, he said, "Till the Congress was in power in Maharashtra, whenever Bagalkot, Vijayapura and other districts of Karnataka were in distress, it would not oblige the request of Karnataka for release of water from Koyna dam. Even when Maharashtra released water, Karnataka was charged an exorbitant Rs 3 crore per tmc feet. Now, the Devendra Fadnavis government of the BJP in Maharashtra has released 5 tmc feet of water in two instalments, free of cost." BJP general secretary Muralidhar Rao said a Congress-free Karnataka movement would give a big boost to the Congress-free India movement launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said the two main points for discussion at the meeting were achieving 150-plus target in the 2018 Assembly elections and 25-plus target in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. Asserting that development agenda alone will ...

Stunning Satara 10.9.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Planning a holiday during the monsoon may limit your choices, as any outing in the rain involves getting drenched. Nevertheless, this is also the time when reservoirs and dams are full and waterfalls come alive. Satara in Maharashtra, home to several forts and reservoirs, is worth a visit during the rains. Arriving in Satara on a clear afternoon, I checked into a hotel, and soon got to the business of chalking out the excursions. Nestled in the lap of the Sahyadri Ranges, surrounded by seven unique mountains, which gives it the name Satara, the city serves as the convenient base for several beautiful forts and water bodies. On top of the list is of course, the Kaas Plateau, which is regarded as an alternative to the famed Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand.
