Pro-Kannada activists launch stir against Sood 23.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Kannada scholars and artistes along with Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) activists held a protest on Sunday against City Police Commissioner Praveen Sood for filing cases against Kannada activists for masking Hindi names on signboards at Metro stations. Addressing journalists, writer Chandrashekar Patil said the police had arrested Kannada activists without proper evidence. "We condemn the disregard shown by the police in filing cases of communal riots against Kannada activists. The government should take strict action against foisting false and fabricated cases. "We do not believe in inciting violence but in non-violent means," said Patil. On Saturday, Sood had filed cases against 36 Kannada activists including KRV workers under Section 153 of the Indian Penal Code for destroying public property in Metro stations.

A push for fast-tracking 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
If there is one sure-shot way to decongest Bengalurus hyper-clogged roads, it had to be a full-fledged, fast, dependable suburban rail system. For years, the collective voice of the citys commuters hit a stone-wall. But the recent approval for conversion of 15 short-distance trains into mainline electrical multiple units (MEMU) rakes might just be the start it needs. Thousands of commuters depend on packed, often irregular passenger and express trains to reach their workplaces in the city from houses miles away from Bengaluru. These MEMU rakes should make a big difference to them. Here's why: By design, MEMUs are faster and hold much more people than conventional trains. Although the maximum seating capacity is 48, the spacious interiors allow much more standing space. It is estimated that a MEMU with 12 coaches can carry about 3,000 passengers, a thousand more than regular trains. Saving time Since these trains are electrified with engines on either side, there is no need to reverse the trains. Such ...

Congress will buck trend in state, will retain power, says CM 22.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday said he is confident of breaking the trend of the ruling party being unable to retain power for the second term in Karnataka in the past three decades. "I am confident of breaking this trend. The Congress will come back to power in Karnataka in the next Assembly elections," he said in an interview to NDTV. No ruling party has been able to retain power for the second term in Karnataka since 1985. Siddaramaiah was replying to a question whether the Congress will be able to break the trend in the next election. He further said that the BJP has no vision for the state. People will neither forget nor will they forgive the saffron party for its misrule between 2008 and 2013, he said. On the issue of Hindi signage by Bengaluru Metro Rail Corporation Ltd, he said he is against the Centre imposing Hindi on the state. The Centre had recently written to the state government, asking it to use Hindi signage at Metro stations. But none of the neighbouring states of Karnataka is ...
