INDIA comes into being, to take NDA head-on

Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka popularly renowned as the Silicon Valley of the country, Science city, the hub of public sector undertakings, and Garden City… boasts any number of such distinctions to its credit. The cosmopolitan cultured paradise for the whole countrymen is much ahead in making history as well. The combined opposition parties’ conclave which began on Monday and concluded today is a testimony of the city’s nature in stepping into the pages of political history. Division of Congress: Apart from the pre-independent era Bengaluru has been in the history pages for a variety of reasons.

Hijab continues to make headlines in Karnataka for all the wrong and unfounded reasons and this time around a few Muslim food catering companies have been accused of forcing Hindu lady employees to wear hijabs and remove Kumkum. Perhaps the development would have gone unnoticed had the organizers not indulged in spoilsport by posting a video in this regard. MLA unaware of the incident: Although, the news of the unsavoury and mischievous incident spread like wildfire following widespread protests by rightwing protagonists including the Bajarang Dal, the local legislator admitted to being unaware of any such development. Following repeated and intermittent calls, G.B Jyothi Ganesh, Tumakuru Bharatiya Janata Party MLA at last picked up the call only to disclose that he was not aware of any such happening in his own constituency! Bajarang Dal protests: However, Manju Bhargav, Tumakuru district Convenor of Bajarang Dal raised a voice of protest on online platforms against the event manage

But on the ground, it looks like there are no takers for such arguments.

Either you hear a vociferous campaign favouring the double engine administration or others baiting both the dispensation. It looks like there is no space for a third or neutral voice. Unimaginable progress over the years: Dr Deepa Nadkarni, a general practitioner based out of Ankleshwar in Bharuch district recollects-“I came to Ankleshwar in 1995 to practice. Then I was carrying my infant kid and the house we en
