Bamboo sprouts may bring back jumbos to Kabini backwaters 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Shortage of bamboo trees has resulted in reduced sighting of elephants in the Kabini backwaters of the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve. However, fresh sprouting of bamboo around lantana weeds in the forest patches is likely to increase the presence of elephants in the days to come, much to the joy of animal lovers. Forest officials said the sprouting of bamboo was a good sign and would help manage the weeds. A forest department official said a few years ago, Kabini backwaters was the preferred location for photographing, counting and learning all about elephants. This is because one side of the backwaters had bamboo and the other side was natural forest patch of the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve. The sightings have dropped because of the absence of bamboo. P Annur Reddy, principal chief conservator of forests (wildlife), told DH that during the elephant census, he found bamboo shoots had started sprouting below the weeds. "It is a good sign. We have to wait for the monsoon to see what happens. Bamboo is the lifeline ...

Horatti opposes move to increase reservation 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Seven-time MLC and senior JD(S) leader Basavaraj Horatti has charged that the Congress government is trying to divide people of Karnataka on the basis of caste. He told reporters on Monday that through the caste census, the government wishes to create more divisions within religions, castes and sub-castes. Giving the example of Lingayat community, Horatti said the government wants to identify Lingayat Banajigar, Lingayat Ganiger, Lingyayat Sadar and other sub-sects of Lingayat community as separate communities and provide them reservation. He said the JD(S) would oppose the government's proposal of increasing reservation for SC/STs and OBCs from the current 50% to 70%. This is against the Supreme Court order, which limits the caste-based reservation to 50%. Lashing out at Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who has been citing the case of Tamil Nadu which has 69% reservation, Horatti said the neighbouring state had increased the quota before the Supreme Court pronounced its order on limiting the caste-based ...

BSY: stir if caste census data is made public 21.5.2017 Deccan Herald - State
BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday warned protests across the state if the state government made caste census public as it was 'unscientific.' "The state government conducted the caste census unscientifically. The government's intention behind the caste census was to divide the Veerashaiva-Lingayat community. Hence, intense protests will be staged across the state if the government makes the caste census data public," he said, while addressing a gathering at Renukacharya Ugamanotsava and Basava Jayanthi celebration at Palace Grounds organised by Vishwa Veerashaiva Lingayat Okkuta. "There are many sub-castes in Veerashaiva-Lingayat community. Siddaramaiah-led Congress government is taking advantage of the sub-caste system to divide the community. The government wants to project that the community's size is smaller compared to other castes. Therefore, the community members should be cautious against such moves," he said. The former chief minister said both Veerashaiva and Lingayat were one and ...
