Dalit PM from Congress will be reality in near future: Anil Shastri - 10/17/2011

TOI
 
NEW DELHI: The day is not far off when a Dalit would be nominated as Prime Minister by Congress, senior party leader Anil Shastri said today.
"Congress has made 4 CMs in different states in past. Day is not far when it will give a dalit PM, not for votes but for dalit empowerment," Anil Shastri posted in popular microblogging site Twitter.
The statement comes in the wake of Mayawati's claim that Congress could appoint Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar or Union minister Sushil Kumar Shinde as prime minister ahead of the UP Assembly elections.
Earlier, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh, who is in-charge of party affairs in Uttar Pradesh, had dismissed Mayawati's claim saying that Manmohan Singh would remain as the Prime Minister.
Shastri, in an another tweet, said, "Mayawati can't be the only dalit aspiring to be PM. There are many more qualified and capable leaders in the Congress."
On the debate over RTI, the Congress leader said there was a concerted effort from people within the government to dilute the Act.
"There seems to be a concerted effort by people in govt to dilute and weaken the RTI which should be resisted by all right thinking people," he said.
Shastri has expressed his views in the backdrop of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's statement that a 'critical look' must be taken at the RTI Act.

It bats for Nandikur-Hassan railway line - 10/16/2011

DHNS-RD

Udupi : The Udupi Railway Yathri Sangha has urged the authorities to drop the proposed Baindur-Kollur-Karkala-Venur railway line. The proposed railway line would require felling of hundreds of trees and the Forest and Environment department will never give permission for the proposed line.

Railway line near Prospect Tunnel

The Railway Yatri Sangha, Udupi, has sought an alternative railway line from Nandikur to Hassan via Karkala, Ujire and Charmadi Ghat.

The sangha has written to Union Minister for Corporate Affairs M Veerappa Moily after learning that he had held a meeting with railway officials in New Delhi on the proposals for Padubidri-Karkala-Ujire-Nettana line and Byndoor-Kollur-Karkala-Venoor-Ujire railway line.

Sangha President R L Dias said that instead of these proposed railway lines, a new railway line should be laid to link Nandikur station on Konkan Railway line with Hale Mudigere via Charmadi Ghat.

He said that the railway line from Nandikur can run parallel to the highway through Karkala-Bajagoli-Naravi-Aladangady-Ujire.  

From Ujire, another line should be laid to Dharmasthala and to Nettana for the benefit of pilgrims visiting Dharmasthala and Subramanya temples.

From Ujire, the line may be taken to Nidgal, Mundaje, Charmadi, Neria Hebbar Estate, Yenepoya Estate, Malekudiya Estate and continue further through the valley to reach Somankad bridge from where two or three tunnels should be built to take the line to Kottigehara-Banakal-Hale Mudigere.

The line can also be connected with the railway line, which is under construction to connect Chikmagalur with the existing Hassan-Mangalore railway line.

The proposed railway line Hubli-Ankola has not been materialised over the last 10 to 12 years as it failed to get clearance from the forest department, Dias said.


Pall of gloom descends upon BJP as Yeddyurappa sent to jail - 10/16/2011

toi
 

 
BANGALORE: Sending ripples among the political class, former Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa was remanded to judicial custody till October 22 and sent to Bangalore Central Jail after he surrendered before the special Lokayukta court here. Earlier, the special Lokayukta Court rejected the anticipatory bail and issued an arrest warrant against him.

Yeddyurappa's former cabinet colleague Es En Krissnaiah Setty, who was co-accused, was present in the court when the orders were passed by Justice N K Sudhindra Rao. He was arrested and sent to judicial custoday.

BSY is accused of denotifying land in and around Bangalore for pecuniary benefits to his family and Setty.

Yeddyurappa's two sons -- Shimoga MP B Y Raghavendra and B Y Vijendra and his son-in-law R N Sohan Kumar were granted conditional bail after each furnished a surety bond of Rs five lakh. Yeddyurappa was not present in the court citing health reasons.

The court had issued the arrest warrant against Yeddyurappa asking the police to execute the same by Tuesday. The former CM stepped down from office on August 4 after the Lokayukta report indicted him in illegal mining.

Meanwhile, Yeddyurappa's house on Race Course Road, which was the hub of political activity even after he stepped down from office, had party leaders and workers gathering.

Gloom descends upon BJP

A sense of gloom prevailed in the ruling BJP, which went into a huddle after former Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa's bail plea was rejected by a Lokayukta report and he was remanded to judicial custody till October 22.

Soon after news of Yeddyurappa's surrender came in, Chief Minister D V Sadananad Gowda, who was en route to the airport to catch a flight to Mumbai, cancelled his trip and was closetted with his ministerial colleagues at his Home Office 'Krishna' to discuss the situation and the political repercussions it could have, sources close to him said.

Gowda has been straining every nerve to refurbish the image of the BJP government in the last three months after it was rocked by a series of scams and the latest development has left him a worried man.

However he put up a brave face while addressing reporters, saying that Yeddyurappa had surrendered despite indifferent health, "which shows the highest respect he and BJP have for the judiciary".

Most BJP leaders were not be available for their reactions.

BV

Udupi: Yediyurappa will come out without any guilt is the immediate reaction of BJP State President S. Eshwarappa here in Udupi, while the former Chief Minister Yediyurappa was getting arrested in Bangalore. We in BJP respect the court, the court has given the order and for honouring it Yediyurappa has surrendered to the court. He is only an accused person and not guilty. He will be proven as innocent and will come out of jail, he assured.

 


 
He was talking to the reporters in Udupi on Saturday evening, while he was inspecting the preparations for the arrival of Advanis Janachetana Rathayathre to Udupi. He said to the opposition party leaders who are accusing Yediyurappa that, remember that you too are living in glass houses, you too will have to come to the court, and then it will be decided who is guilty and who is not, he said.
 
There is nothing for me or the party to be embarrassed of, with the former Chief Minister being arrested while BJP National leader Advani’s Rathayathre is arriving to Karnataka. Advani is conducting the Rathayathra for cleaning the politics of the whole nation and not just for Ydiyurappa or any other person, said Eshwarappa.

 

Udupi: Lokayukta Hegde Protected Former CM’s  - Eshwarappa

 
Udupi, 15 October 2011:
Former Lokayukta Santhosh Hegde in his report has protected the illegal activities carried out during the tenure of the former Chief Ministers S.M. Krishna, Dharam Singh and Kumaraswamy, accused Eshwarappa. Government has respect on the former Lokayukta. Government has not rejected his report.
 
Former Lokayukta Hegde was asked to investigate and report the illegality in mining from 2000 to 2010, but he has investigated the illegality of just one or two years only, that too he has not done the investigation properly, he has investigated only on the de-notification of lands. With this the illegality taken place during Congress and JDS administration is protected. The state government has only asked clarification from the Lokayukta and government does not have any intention to reject the report, he said.
 
Earlier when the former Lokayukta Santhosh Hegde resigned, the BJP National President went to his house and requested him to take back his resignation. Only after the National leader Advani asked him, he took back his resignation. We have full respect on Hedge. As per his report only Yeddiyurappa had resigned to his Chief Minister’s position. So the government has no intention of disnonouring him by rejecting his report, said Eshwarappa. 



Dubai: Pradeeep Barboza Enraptures Audience with 'Ootre Uzwadlem' - 10/15/2011

DW

Dubai, Oct 15: It was indeed heartening to see a jam-packed audience at the Shaikh Rashid Auditorium of the Indian High School for a Konkani drama which was the highest ever seen in recent times for a Konkani programme. That there is scope for powerful dramas was evident by the turnout or may be because it was Dubai’s most famous dramatist Pradeep Barboza who was behind the entire entertainment. The goodly Friday crowd enjoyed every bit although one could do better with better dialogue delivery and far more powerful voices and sound as well.

The crowd which was eager to listen to every word from the actors had to repeatedly shout saying ‘sound sound’ which could have been avoided with better management. The actors too with more experience should learn to deliver their dialogues right in front of the microphones although it may not be possible always.

Dubai’s three-in-one talent Pradeep Barboza is proving that he can deliver more than what the audience wants. This was evident when his new play 'Ootre Uzwadlem' went beyond one’s imagination with plenty to laugh and cheer while also managing to convey a meaningful social message. Pradeep is a well know drama writer, actor and director all rolled into one.


























































The playwright, actor and director who has shown his immense dramatic skills with numerous plays successfully performed all over India and the Gulf was once again at his best with ‘Ootre Uzwadelm’ where the youngsters trained by him showed enough qualities to perform well in front of the paying public.

As the contractor Pradeep excelled with his sure and quick dialogues while the shopkeeper Alex maam (Sunil) caught the eye with his great acting. Another pair to catch the eye was the comical lorry driver (Gowin) and conductor (Paul) who were tailor made for their roles. The lorry driver Godwin in particular was cut out for the role although one rarely saw him using the trio of mobiles which he was carrying to talk to his girl friends!

Dubai's young talents Ramcy Fernandes and Sharon Rego in lead roles proved their maturity and excelled in all departments.

Those in villain's role 'uncle', and as mother and two brothers too showed their ability in acting and dialogue delivery.

One has seen the young Deepak D’Silva Paladka's mettle in other Konkani plays in Dubai and elsewhere. Along with Pradeep Barboza, Deepak is known to enact his roles with absolute efficiency. As the Dubai-returned office boy he took the cake with his fine acting. Other actors too played well within their abilities.

The evening was put up by Konkan Yuva who channeled their energies for a good cause and proved that they were responsible citizens even if they have left their shores and come to the UAE. The energetic Catholic youngsters managed to organize a meaningful drama for the first time with plenty of teamwork and one has to commend their efforts.

In a brief stage programe, the event was inaugurated by lighting the camp. Ronald Colaco, NRI entrepreneur was the chief guest. Walter Nandalike of Daijiworld, Dayan D'Souza of Daiji Dubai and Fernandes Cascia, veteran dramatist were the guests of honour.

Ronald Colaco inspired the young minds and urged the audience to keep aside some part of their earnings to contribute for the betterment of their mother tongue, Konkani. Leading by example, he announced AED 25,000 for Konkan Yuva and urged the youngsters to unite and do more good work like they have been doing for the last seven years.

'Ootre Uzwadlem' playwright Pradeep Barboza and Francis Fernandes Cascia both were honoured on the occasion. Konkan Yuva bestowed the title ‘Comedy Prince ‘ to Pradeep Barboza.

Earlier, the audience were treated to mind-blowing dance performances by the talented kids of Dubai, followed by a power-point presentation of Konkan Yuva's achievements.

Dubai's well-known compere Uttam Menezes compered the stage programme. Deepak Machado introduced Pradeep Barboza to the audience.

All in all, it was a well-organized event by Konkan Yuva and one only hopes that the organization will find ways to use their revenues to better the conditions of the people around them. Well done, Konkan Yuva.
