Evening daily Will BSY find place in Advani rath? Bangalore Beat Bureau Bangalore: Will senior BJP leader L K Advani give space to former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa, who had to quit his post on charges of corruption on his rath during the Jan Chetan Yatra when it passes through the state? Advani’s yatra is being touted as an anti-corruption movement. The question had the state BJP leadership, B S Yeddyurappa which is coordinating the state leg of the yatra, in a tight spot. Addressing a press conference to announce the yatra itinerary in the state, BJP state spokesman and MLA C T Ravi said, “You have to wait and see till the yatra reaches the state. But he will be part of the yatra. There is no doubt that Yeddyurappa is the unquestionable leader of the L K Advani state BJP.” Questions were also raised about the Advani’s decision to make MP and BJP national general secretary H N Ananth Kumar part of the yatra through its entire journey across the country. Ananth Kumar has been accused of involvement in multi-crore Hudco scandal. Ravi said, “Those are mere allegations. The Centre has not even filed an FIR in the case.” But he had to keep quiet when media men pointed out that a case was already going on in the court. State convener for the yatra, Naveen Kumar Katil, and Ravi said, “The yatra will enter the state through Kasargod on October 30. The same day evening at 6, a public meeting will be held at National College Grounds at Basavanagudi in Bangalore.” The next day it will move towards Mangalore. It will pass through Mulki, Yajamadi, Udupi, Knudapura, Baindoor, Bhatkal before reaching Honnavar, where a public meeting will be held. On November 1, a media conference will be held at Gokarna. From Gokarna it will reach Karwar and enter Goa. The yatra will pass through the state for three days, they added.

Good Samaritan rushes injured boy, dies at hospital Manjunath Sharma Bangalore Beat Bureau Bangalore: A Good Samaritan, who had tried to help a youngster who had suffered a fall and sustained injuries, fell dead at the doctor’s clinic where the latter was being treated in the city today. This morning, Manish (21), an errand boy, was asked to clean the terrace of a private business establishment at Kalasipalya. As the rain water had clogged on the terrace, Azafal asked Manish to climb on top of the second floor and to clear the drains. As he was cleaning it, Manish slipped and fell to the ground. Shekar (32), who fills water at the establishment, immediately rushed Manish in an autorickshaw to a private clinic nearby. As the doctors were treating the youngster, Shekar complained of giddiness. The doctor told him to sit on the sofa at the reception. After the treatment, Manish was found to be out of danger and he walked out of the treatment room along with the doctor. When they reached the reception, they found Shekar lying down, seemingly sleeping.

They called him out, but there was no reply. When they tried to wake him up, they realised that he was dead sitting at the same spot. Manish called up Azafal, who asked him to rush the body back. Kalasipalya po-

torcade to pass during the peak hours around 10 am. The government may also give the option of recording the statement at the City Civil Court complex on either a Sunday or a second Saturday when courts would be closed. On such a day, there will be no crowd. Earlier, the same complex as venue had been shot down as on any given working day there are huge crowds, posing a threat to the AIADMK leader. The complex could be vacated the by 5 pm the previous day and handed over to the police for sanitisation. There is also a thinking of conducting the trial at the judges’ quarters at the National Games Village complex at Koramangala. But from all quarters, Parappana Agrahara is being welcomed as the ideal venue. The traffic police too are OK with it as it is not too much of a problem controlling the traffic in those parts. Even if Jayalalithaa starts from Koramangala during the peak hours, she can reach the central prison within an hour. A high-level meeting has been convened this evening and on the table will be the three options. The meeting will be attended by deputy commissioner of police (central), home secretary, public works department secretary, registrar of civil court complex and registrar of the high court. The meeting will narrow down the options to the three and send them to the Tamil Nadu government through the protocol department of the Karnataka government.

hike for growth: FKCCI

Bangalore: Confirming economic slowdown, the slow industrial growth (4.1%) continued in August 2011 as well, after a 21-month low of 3.3 per cent in July 2011. It is also a worrying factor that the manufacturing sector is continuing to grow at a far lower growth of 4.5% in August. Federation of Karnataka Chamber of Commerce and Industry is seriously disturbed over continued low industry growth. Because of this slowdown, FKCCI agrees with the economists’ assessment that the Indian econ-

omy’ growth will narrow down to about 7.5% this fiscal. Another worrying factor is substantial decline in coal production. It is reported that the power ministry has estimated that the country has lost 4 billion units (bu) of power generation between April and September 2011-12 due to a severe dip in coal supply from Coal India and its arms. The low power availability is also crippling the industry, both nationally and in the state, badly and is telling on its operative costs and returns.

In view of this grim scenario, FKCCI strongly urges the Reserve Bank of India to take a pause at the interest rate hike in its ensuing review in the last week of October. FKCCI, while welcoming the RBI decision to extend interest subvention of 2% on rupee export credit with effect from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012 to handicrafts, handlooms, carpet and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), wants it to be extended to as many exporting sectors as possible.

Plan must to tackle AEG opens calamities: IISc prof plant in city

Bangalore: The country has to plan preparedness to reduce the risk of huge losses during earthquakes. Earthquake is not a disaster but only a hazard. A wellplanned disaster management programme will reduce the loss of life and property, said T G Sitharam, professor department of civil engineering, IISc, while inaugurating a three-day training programme on capacity building of architects and engineers in earthquake-risk reduction in University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering. Bangalore University vicechancellor N Prabhu Dev said there is a huge loss of lives because of disasters like floods, tsunamis and earthquakes. Technology should be developed so that we can give warning well in advance and minimise the loss of lives. UVCE principal Venugopal K R said the Japanese model of disaster management should be adopted in the country. He emphasised that the Japanese could come to terms within a week of the disastrous tsunami in their Country. They could lay the roads within three days. Though, they continuously live with the risk of earthquakes and violent volcanoes, they are confident of overcoming such calamities. When the whole world was anx-

Japan was destroyed in the two World Wars, still it grew as a strong industrial leader. Their products are acclaimed world wide, it may be Sony, Mitubushi, Toshiba or Akai. The post-graduate earthquake engineering course at UVCE is only second in the country and aims to train

and build enough infrastructure and capacity to tackle earthquakes in the country. V Devaraju and L Govindaraju presented details of the threeday training programme on capacity building of architects and engineers in earthquake risk reduction.

Bangalore: AEG Power Solutions, manufacturer of power electronic systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energies, inaugurated its power electronic factory in the city. AEG PS will produce two solar inverter series PV250 and PV500 at the factory. The facility has a capacity to manufacture products generating 400 mw per year with approximately 150 employees. In the new plant, the next stage of completion foresees the production of uninterruptable power supplies (UPSs). “India invests high amounts of money in solar energy and is one of the most important markets for AEG PS. With a local production, we strengthen our customer relationship in focusing on the specific demands,” said Horst J. Kayser, chief executive officer of AEG Power Solutions. Since 2008, the Indian government follows a National Action Plan on Climate Change, where the extension of solar energy plays a key role. Photovoltaic fields, solar power plants and rooftop installations should generate 1,000 mw of power by 2013. Besides this, it is planned to produce further 200 mw by solar systems, which are not connected to the public power network. Under the plan, the use of solarpowered equipment and applications would be made compul-

Bangalore Beat Bureau Bangalore: The Right To Information Act should be implemented fully. Otherwise, an agitation will be held, the Federation of RTI Activists and Forums has warned. Though RTI came into force six years ago, many of the provisions have not been implemented. It specifies that government officials have to provide information within 30 days, but they are still not following the rules, said Federation president J S D Phani. The government should appoint someone with the knowledge of RTI and related issues as information commissioners, he demanded.

Claim Indian Railways not giving full refund of cancelled tickets L Raghunanda Bangalore Beat Bureau Bangalore: Some railway passengers in the city have a curious grievance that they want addressed. Two individuals claim that the railway booking office is not refunding the correct amount of money on cancelled tickets. Sharanappa, a wholesale grocery dealer from Yadgir district, told Bangalore Beat: “I wanted to travel in Udyan express, from Bangalore city railway station back to my hometown of Yadgir on the July 31 evening. My ticket was booked for the morning train. The previous evening I decided to cancel my ticket. The cost of the ticket is Rs 270 and I should have received a refund of Rs 250. But I was given only Rs 230. When I and others in the queue asked the person at the counter he didn’t give us a satisfactory response.” Tapan Mukherji, a garment factory worker from Kolkata also had a similar tale to tell. “I had booked a ticket on Guwahati Express on July 26 for Rs 508. My ticket was confirmed. My jour-

ney was to be on July 31. However, due to my wife’s ill-health, I decided to cancel my ticket. I was supposed to get a refund of Rs 468, but got only Rs 448. When I asked the person at the booking

Speaking on corruption, Hegde said “Transparency is everything. India is ranked 87th in the world corruption index. When I assumed the post of Lokyuktha, it was 84th. Corruption is not a new concept; it was there before any of us were born. But it is on the increase now. Earlier there was a saying that five fingers were enough to stop corruption but now, you need five fingers to point out the clean people. Earlier corruption was in terms of two zeros, like 100s or 500s, now it’s in terms of fifteen zeroes. There is no limit to corruption. Public needs to wonder, what will be the future if this level of corruption continues. Politicians say India has seen a lot of development, where is this development? There is no de-

Every year the government gives 4-5 crores to each village but where is that money? “In my five years of experience as the Lokayuktha I have seen corruption everywhere. Even in things like pensions for old people, handicapped people and widows. We are forgetting human values. This is a disease called ‘greed over need’. The only cure for it is to go to jail. Ambition I fine within limits, but if it crosses the limit then this treatment is needed. People have developed aversions like, if they go to a government hospital, they will not come back. Doctors need to be honest and straightforward. Everywhere corruption is increasing. We should think about this.” Hedge also released a book ‘removal of corruption by human beings’ by Dr R Balasubramaniam.

Blow for Uphaar victims, SC lowers compensation

New Delhi: In a major relief for Ansal Theatre and Clubotels Ltd in the 1997 Uphaar Cinema fire tragedy in New Delhi, the Supreme Court on Thursday reduced the compensation payable to the family of those killed in the tragedy. The apex court reduced the compensation for persons above 20 years who died in the tragedy from Rs 18 lakh to Rs 10 lakh and that for people below 20

years has been reduced from Rs 15 lakh to Rs 7.5 lakh. Ansal Theatre and Clubotels Ltd, which owned the Uphaar theatre, will pay 85 per cent of the the compensation while the remaining 15 per cent will have to be paid by the Delhi Vidyut Board (DVB). However, the court also observed that the Ansals and the DVB are liable for the Uphaar tragedy, and not the Municipal

Coprporation of Delhi and the licencing authority. The decision comes more than 14 years after the inferno snuffed out 59 lives and injured 103 others. The Association of Victims of Uphaar Fire Tragedy (AVUT) had sought a civil compensation from Ansal Theatre and Clubotels Ltd. and the Delhi government alleged 'negligence' on their part led to the fire in the cinema hall.

The verdict of this case came on April 24, 2003, and the Delhi High Court found owners of the Uphaar cinema, MCD, DVB and the licensing authority 'guilty of negligence', and awarded Rs 25 crore civil compensation to the relatives of victims, which included Rs 15 lakh each to the relatives of the victims, less than 20 years at the time of the tragedy and a sum of Rs 18 lakh each to those, above 20 years.

PM race: Uma Bhushan attack: Tejinder Bagga and Vishnu Gupta arrested backs Advani

New Delhi: On the third day of the LK Advani's Jan Chetna Yatra, BJP senior leader Uma Bharti on Thursday added fuel to the discussions over the party's prime ministerial candidature in the next Lok Sabha elections, supporting the veteran yatri's name for the race. Bharti pitched for Advani as the BJP's Prime Ministrial man while supporting Advani's anticorruption yatra. Addressing a rally at Varanasi, she said, "Those who have started the yatra from Varanasi, have gone on to become the become the Prime Minister of India." The former MP CM who in the past has slammed Advani for his remark on Jinnah, was of all-praise for the 83-yr-old Advani. Uma Bharti was recently reindcuted into the BJP with an eye on UP polls. As his Jan Chetna Yatra entered third day on Thursday, Advani had to face protests against his proposed rally in Varanasi.

Congress workers shouted Anti-Advani slogans wirth hoardings in their hands. The police personnel deployed to check the crowd escorted the protesters into a bus. Advani is expected to proceed towards Mathura later in the day where BJP senior leaders Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley are expected to flag off the Mathura segment of the yatra. With this, Advani will wrap up the Uttar Pradesh leg of Jan Chetna Yatra against corruption. He is expected to enter Madhya Pradesh's Rewa district later this evening.

New Delhi: Two of the three men who attacked senior Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan on Wednesday inside his chamber have been arrested by the Delhi Police. Tejinder Pal Singh Bagga and Vishnu Gupta, the two men who had been absconding after attacking Bhushan, were arrested by the Delhi Police on Thursday from a house where they were hiding. The duo, who apparently belong to a little known outfit called the Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena, has been brought to the Tilak Marg police station. Both have been booked for trespass, criminal assault and criminal conspiracy. Earlier they had said that they would court arrest in Patiala House Court at 11.30 am. However, the police arrested them before they could reach the court. Soon after Bhushan was attacked Bagga claimed responsibility for the incident. He also claimed that he had attacked

New Delhi: The Delhi police today revealed that the explosives found in an abandoned car in Ambala was meant for banned terror outfit Babbar Khalsa International and was to be used in Delhi. As per the Delhi Police, central intelligence agencies had provided the input that a module of the Lashkar-e-Toiba was active in J&K. Then on October 12, a specific input was passed on about a consignment of explosives being sent from J&K for use in Delhi. A possible terror attack was foiled just days before the Diwali

festival with the recovery of over 5-kg explosives and detonators from a car parked outside the Ambala Cantt Railway Station, police said on Thursday. Haryana Police sources said two newspapers with Jammu dateline and empty sweet box from a shop in Jammu was found in the car. Acting on a tip-off, a joint police team of Delhi and Haryana found the explosives in a blue Indica car parked outside the railway station on Wednesday night. "Five detonators, two timer devices, five kg explosives in two

packets and two batteries were seized from the car lying parked outside the railway station," Haryana's Director General of Police, Ranjiv Dalal, who along with senior officials of Haryana Police rushed to the spot, said. Bomb disposal squads were summoned from Madhuban and other neighbouring places. A box of sweets was found lying in the car, which showed that it was purchased from Jammu's Bari Brahmna area besides two newspapers from Jammu and Kashmir. The car was bearing a fake Haryana registration number

and police suspect that it was a stolen one. When asked if the intended target of the terror plot could have been Delhi, Dalal said, "Senior officers from various investigating and security agencies are here. We are probing every angle". As the cantonment area is also located in Ambala, police would also be probing if the target could have been a military installation in the region. The explosives have been sent for forensic test and a team of National Security Guard (NSG) from Delhi has reached the spot.
