V ishwanath Sajjanar , Cyberabad Police Commissioner, the IPS officer now being showered with a heap of praises from across the country and several other parts of the world incidentally hails from Hubballi in Karnataka. Vishwanath Sajjanar It is also not for the first time that the upright IPS officer's name is heard in such heroic feats. He had even encountered an Auto driver, accused in throwing acid on a married woman in Warrangal district. Then he was serving as Superintendent of Police(SP) at Warangal. The country woke up early in the morning on Friday with the breaking news of the culprits behind the rape and torching to death of 26 years old Veterinary doctor being shot dead in an encounter in the wee hours. Vishwanath Sajjanar's instant action following an attempt by the culprits to snatch rifle of the Police Commissioner and move to attack the police team with stones as reported has drawn a huge applause over the social networking sites. The police action has

Karnataka: BSY gets a reprieve as HDK offers olive leaf?

T he BS Yediurappa led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state government has enough reasons to heave a sigh of relief following an olive leaf offered by HD Kumaraswamy, former chief minister and state Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) party president. HD Kumaraswamy recently announced: Siddaramaiah, former chief minister and Congress Legislature Party (CLP) may be in a hurry to topple this government and go for elections. But I will not allow that to happen…The sudden and unexpected move by the self-proclaimed regional peasants outfit otherwise dubbed as father and sons, now grandsons’ party by detractors is not out of any special love and affection for the saffron party or its chief minister but for a well-orchestrated political strategy to exist and thrive. Of late the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) legislature party is a divided house and has internally led into multiple diverse factions. Three legislators including H Vishwanath (represented Hunsuru constituency in Mysuru district) former state par

Karnataka farmers agitate for Mahadayi waters while BSY assures Krishna waters to Maharashtra!

BS Yediyurappa , Karnataka Chief Minister today stirred a hornet's nest while addressing a Bharatiya Janata Party-Shivsena electoral campaign public meeting at Jatta town belonging to Solapur district in Maharashtra. The lone saffron party mass leader of the neighbouring state gave a clarion call to Kannadigas settled in the bordering districts to vote for the Shivsena candidate in the ensuing Maharashtra Assembly elections to ensure fulfilment of their long-standing demands including release of Krishna River waters from the Alamatti dam of Vijayapura district.Perhaps it was a magnanimous gesture for a chief minister of an adjoining state to declare the release of water for the parched areas of Solapur district. But the timing proved to be unwise. The farmers of North Karnataka, including hundreds of women clad in green sarees, have descended in Bengaluru this morning to press for their age-old demand of release of Mahadayi River waters to regions of Belagavi, Dharwad and Gada

DKShi issue becomes a weapon for INC-JDS to hammer BJP

M assive protest rally by the Vokkaliga organisations in association with Janata Dal-Secular(JD-S), Indian National Congress(INC) and several pro-Kannada organizations to protest against the arrest of DK Shivakumar , Man Friday of the Congress party emerged to be a big success considering the huge turnout. The event also transformed into a platform for everyone present to hurl all sorts of abuses against the Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) led National Democratic Alliance(NDA) government in the centre in general and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amith Shah in particular.All along the 5.2 kilometres route of the 'Raj Bhavan Chalo' from the National College grounds in Basavanagudi to the Freedom Park near Anandrao Circle the protesters raised slogans against the Union Government, PM and the Home Minister. The speakers appeared to be more interested in making sweeping remarks against the BJP governments in the state and Centre by accusing both of them indulgi

Karnataka BJP's differences come into open

( Photo:ANI ) N alin Kumar Kateel , three times Member of Parliament from South Canara(Mangaluru) Lok Sabha constituency took over as the new president of the state Bharatiya Janata Party this morning at the party office Bengaluru. BS Yediyurappa outgoing president and Chief Minister handed over the mantle by transferring the party flag and wishing him a fruitful tenure. He also felicitated the new president with a gorgeous silk shawl, traditional garland and a memento. No doubt it was a joyous occasion and celebration for the new president as he had restricted himself as a leader of the coastal belt of South Canara and Udupi districts so far by his fiery and equally controversial speeches. However, it's altogether sweet and sour feeling for the average party workers' who continue to remain the backbone of the party. 17 new ministers were sworn in only a week back but for some of them, it wasn't any important function to attend. R Ashoka, Revenue Minister and former D

Karnataka BJP's public image takes a severe beating

T he BS Yediyurappa led one-month-old Bharatiya Janata Party government is in the news these days for all the wrong reasons. The party's public image no doubt has taken a back seat following such piquant situation! For whatsoever reasons warranting such an adverse situation, the ordinary workers, sympathisers and leaders appear to be undergoing an uneasy calm as a fallout of such a plight. Interestingly or rather hopelessly, this strange turnabout of things has taken shape since the very day BS Yediyurappa was sworn in as the Chief Minister on 26 July 2019. Although he took over the oath of office and secrecy on 26 July, he had to wait till 20 August for getting a nod to expand his lone member cabinet! And till that period he went on touring the flood-affected areas all alone in the capacity of a CM without any members in his cabinet. This plight was enough for the opposition Indian National Congress(INC) and Janata-Dal Secular(JD-S) leaders to have a dig now and then at the f

Girish Karnad has his own way even in death​

image-source :  R enowned actor, playwright and filmmaker Girish Karnad , equally popular for his candid remarks and public outbursts to register whatever he felt right ultimately had his own way in bidding adieu to the worldly screen as well. In an unassuming manner to his caliber and contribution to the art and cultural fields in the country and elsewhere he preferred to be cremated as another ordinary fellow being by denying the honors of a state funeral willingly offered by the local government.Not only refusal of a funeral with state honor, his last rites took place devoid of any religious rituals unlike during such occasions in the case of all others. HD Kumaraswamy, Chief Minister had made an announcement in this regard soon after learning his demise and had declared that the late artist would be accorded a state funeral. He also declared the day as a public holiday apart from three days mourning across the state.But all such claims turned out to be
