Rs 1,000 crores to Temples, a big boost towards restoration

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has announced proposing Rs 1,000 crores towards comprehensive development and renovation of temples and various religious Mutts spread across the state in the state budget. In fact, this is not for the first time that a budgetary provision is being made for the improvement, renovation and restoration of old, ancient and heritage temples. Increase by Rs 425 crores: In comparision to the previous year’s allocation for the same purpose, the amount has been enhanced to Rs 425 crores which by any measure is a giant leap. The higher proportion is also no big a surprise as the chief minister also happens to be the finance minister. Maybe the trend Northward was expected this time but perhaps, not to such an extent. Although Rs 1,000 crores has been announced for the improvement and development of temples, there is no clear cut plan on the way it will be utilized. BSY lays down the practice: Releasing monetary benefit to the religious institutions an

Shishuvinahal: CM’s will triggers unprecedented tourism potential

Shishuvinahal or Shishunal of Shiggavi Taluk in the Haveri district is a sought-after place for pilgrims of Sant Shishuvinahal Sharif and his spiritual guru, Guru Govinda Bhatta. Shishunal Sharif is well known as a saint-poet, philosopher and social reformer while his philosophical verses have touched the hearts of admirers not only within the country but elsewhere also. Just like the revered Shri Shirdi Sai Baba, philosophical poet Sant Kabir, Sant Shishunal Sharif happens to be a rare gem going beyond the narrow limitations of caste, region and religion in spreading the significance of humanitarian values in one’s life. Miracles from childhood days: He was born on 03 July 1819 in Shishuvinahala village of the undivided Dharwad district and happened to be the only son and it is said that he was born late to his parents. Interestingly he bid adieu to the mortal life on 03 July. According to the local legend he is said to have been conceived as a result of divine blessings from the almi

BSY empties his old wine in Basavaraj Bommai's new bottle!

Basavaraj Bommai's one-man cabinet has at last been expanded on the eighth day after he was sworn in as Chief Minister last Wednesday. In between the new chief minister camped in the nation's capital, initially for two days and three days in the second lap to finalize his cabinet. But in the end, what has turned out reminds one of the old wines in a new bottle! And what else; much to the grouse of his detractors in the state and Delhi BS Yediyurappa continues to have the last laugh! Although the former chief minister succeeded in ensuring most members of the Bombay Team (Congress and Janata Dal-Secular MLAs' who resigned and joined BJP to topple the previous coalition government) continue to remain in the saddle, his all types of tricks, pressures and pulls didn't come to his rescue in enabling his second son BY Vijayendra to become a Minister. image source: The Indian Express Pupil got results and stripping of berth:  However, his masterstroke helped in dropping CP Yog

BS Yediyurappa Martyred on Martyrs Day!

Perhaps it may not be coincidental? BS Yediyurappa, Karnataka Chief Minister of the Bharatiya Janata Party government put his papers to relinquish the position he had been holding for the last two years. He quitting the position midway and before the tenure ended formally has been happening repeatedly in his political career and this is for the fourth final time! Several theories are being propagated for his unceremonious sudden exit. One such, party insiders claim: This action is as per the "Understanding" BS Yediyurappa had agreed upon with the party top brass much before it was decided to hand over the mantle of the only state in the whole of South India wherein the saffron party enjoys power. Prior Agreement: Some even pinpoint that initially, such "agreement" was limited only to a period of one year as BSY was already 75+. However, as the only exception in the whole country, according to BSY, he was allowed to continue for one more year, thanks to the magnanim

Modern Days Vishakanta BS Yediyurappa

Bookanakere Siddalingappa Yediyurappa , usually known as BS Yediyurappa or BSY and Raja Huli(King Tiger) among his admirers looks to have reached the culmination point in his political innings with an overdose of never-ending ups' and downs'. According to his own pronouncements, he's putting up his papers for the coveted post which he adorned for the fourth time and like before a short-lived one! source: Economic Times It also goes to his credit of literally striving along with BB Shivappa, HN Ananthkumar and many others in enabling the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) from a four legislators' party to a ruling party. Probably BSY himself may not be remembering the number of times he has travelled across the state nook and corner, day and night and days together to campaign for the party whole heartedly. However, despite toiling for the party's victory several times, he hasn't been lucky to remain in the saddle for the whole term not even once. Whether you believe in

RS: BJP springs a surprise by rewarding tickets to ordinary workers

T he national high command of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has sprung a surprise by rewarding two ordinary workers with Rajya Sabha tickets neglecting hectic political lobbying by the political heavyweights and the like of them. Iranna Kadadi of Belagavi in Mumbai Karnataka region and Ashok Gasti of Raichur belonging to the backward Hyderabad Karnataka area, hitherto much unknown for power lobbying in party politics were taken aback when their names were announced this afternoon. Umesh Katti, former minister and eight times MLA had been in the forefront to ensure that his brother Ramesh Katti got the party ticket to contest the Rajya Sabha elections.When the whole world is embroiled into the Coronavirus pandemic he found the time conducive to play petty politics as he held a dinner meeting with some disgruntled ruling party legislators who also lost the race in entering the state cabinet just a few days back to register his anger for still not being inducted into the cabinet.

Karnataka: Onus of winning elections once again on B S Yediyurappa

B S Yediyurappa , Karnataka Chief Minister is once again under heavy pressure from the central party high command to win most of the 15 Assembly bye-elections slated to be held on 05 December. image source: PTI If you were to take cognisance of the situation on ground in most of these 15 Assembly constituencies then the victory path to the ruling saffron party is no way full of roses. On the other hand one can foresee any number of thorns patches all along! But the intriguing hazard that continues to remain for BS Yediyurappa is that the onus of winning the bye-elections is let solely on the shoulders of the only state mass leader just like the previous general elections. The ruling party insiders also have their own theories to put forth for such a predicament to the grand old man of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). They claim: He was given a free hand to engineer “Operation Lotus” to bring back the party to the treasury benches and now the challenge of ensuring the victory of these fen

BS Yediyurappa: Roaring tiger turned puppet!

Bookanakere Siddalingappa Yediyurappa has accomplished his dream of becoming the state Chief Minister for the fourth time. However, during the turn of events over a period of time and within two months after taking over the reins he looks to have been mellowed down to a great extent which is in quite contrast to his personal and political personality so far. image : This transformation apart from amazing his admirers and shocking the followers is not a big surprise to his detractors within the ruling party who continue to gun him down at every possible opportunity! In spite of being the sole unquestionable mass leader of the saffron party irrespective of caste and creed, he continues to be projected as a Lingayat strong man in some sections of the media to restrict him to one particular community.Interestingly many contenders have cropped up to the pivotal CM post as soon as he is relieved to be packed up to a gubernatorial position none of these aspirants boast of ma
