Cong split over tie-up with JD(S) 1.9.2015 deccanherald.com
Serious differences have emerged within the ruling Congress over having a pact with the JD(S) to hold the reins of the BBMP. A section of Congress leaders see no merit in shaking hands with the father-son duo of H D Deve Gowda and H D Kumaraswamy. Though Gowda virtually rolled out a red carpet to the Congress on Tuesday to facilitate talks for an alliance, KPCCpresident G Parameshwara has not been receptive. "We work within a framework. Decisions regarding alliance should be taken at the high command level. So far I have not received any instructions from the high command. At present I have no plans to meet anyone in the JD(S). A lot of consultation is required in case both parties want to have a tie-up," Parameshwara told Deccan Herald. The party high command has not given its nod for a tie-up with any party, he added. Sources in the Congress said a section of leaders have serious reservations in having any sort of understanding with the JD(S) as it would cause severe damage to the party in the long ...

Caught napping in race for pact, BJP licks its wounds 1.9.2015 deccanherald.com
The BJP has been reduced to being a mute spectator with the JD(S) leaving no stone unturned to stitch up an alliance with the Congress to enable it to take over the reins of the BBMP council. Sources in the BJP said that it had no future as long as the JD(S) aligned with the Congress. All that the saffron party can do is sit in the opposition as it is short of five seats to reach the required number of 131 to come to power in the Council. The sources said that a few individuals had bungled in handling the situation as they were caught napping when the independent corporators-elect approached them offering help to run the Palike. These individuals were basking in the glory of winning the highest number of wards, but at the same time, they did not want to share the success with others in the party. This led to the party biting the dust. Such shocks are required at times for the party to be more careful in future, the sources said. The BJP later approached the JD(S),offering the deputy mayor's post and ...

Gowda puts seal of approval on tie-up plan 1.9.2015 deccanherald.com
On Tuesday, it was the turn of JD(S) supremo HDDeve Gowda's turn to endorse what his son HDKumaraswamy had said about the party's intention to forge an alliance with the Congress for power in the BBMP. Gowda said that there was no need for the State Congress leadership to hold talks with him in this regard. It would suffice if they held discussions with Kumaraswamy, who is the State JD(S) president, he said. Addressing a press conference in Bengaluru, Gowda, however, said that this alliance should not threaten his party's existence. Hence, he claimed, his party would not be putting forth any demands to share power in the Palike. He said that his party would not even demand the deputy mayor's post and whether it would be offered by the Congress was a matter of hypothesis. He recalled that senior Congress leader Mallikarjuna Kharge had said that the State leadership of the Congress had to take a call on the matter and there was no need for the high command to interfere. "I don't expect Siddaramaiah or ...

Rajeev Chandrashekar to back saffron party in mayoral election 1.9.2015 deccanherald.com
Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrashekhar (Independent) and Independent MLC D U Mallikarjuna on Tuesday pledged their support for the BJP in the Bengaluru mayoral election. In a scenario where every vote in the electoral college to decide the next mayor of Bengaluru counts, the two who have the voting right said they were with the BJP. "I will definitely vote for the BJP as I am part of the National Democratic Alliance at the Centre," Chandrashekhar told Deccan Herald. He ridiculed the claim of the Congress that it too had the right to have its own mayor. "This claim is quite ridiculous and is against the people's mandate, which is for the BJP," he said. He, however, maintained that his vote to the BJP was not an endorsement of whatever misrule that had happened in the BBMP in the past five years. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a vision for providing a corruption-free governance, which also includes wiping out this vice from urban governance," Chandrashekhar added. Mallikarjuna too vowed to vote for ...

CM, Cong MLAs deputing corrupt officials to Palike, says ex-corporator 1.9.2015 deccanherald.com
Former Yediyur corporator and BJP leader N R Ramesh has accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, his Cabinet colleagues, MLAs and Congress leaders of making the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike "a den of corruption". Amid the tug of war between political parties to gain control over the BBMP, Ramesh fired a salvo on Tuesday, claiming that Siddaramaiah had "patronised the transfer business" in the BBMP by posting several corrupt officials to the civic body. "The High Court of Karnataka had directed the chief minister's office in 2013 not to poke its nose into transfer-related matters of the BBMP, but this interference continues. Officials still bring recommendation letters from these high offices to get a posting in the BBMP," Ramesh suggested. He cited the case of D Ranganath, a Public Works Department (PWD) engineer who is on deputation to the BBMP as an assistant executive engineer in the Chamarajpet subdivision. Due to serious cases of dereliction of duty, BBMP Administrator T M Vijay Bhaskar had ...

Property tax to go up, but only by next April 1.9.2015 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has decided to increase property tax to boost its coffers by at least Rs 500-600 crore a year. But the new rates will come into force only in April next year, thus giving property owners a short-term relief. The decision on revising the tax was taken a few weeks ago, a senior Palike official said on the condition of anonymity. "We are yet to prepare a draft copy and work out the modalities. We have written to the State government to approve the hike. The new rates are likely to come into force next April," the official said. The civic agency hasn't increased the property tax since 2008. New rates The new rates per square foot will be fixed on the basis of six taxation zones (A, B, C, D, E and F), according to Palike officials. Once the new rates come into force, the Palike hopes to earn Rs 500-600 crore more per year. While the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike Administrator, TM Vijaya Bhaskar, wasn't available for comment, Palike spokesperson S S Khandre ...

"Our party leaders including legislators have decided to join hands with Congress for the Mayoral election," he told reporters here. Gowdas son and JDS president H D Kumaraswamy had yesterday made it clear that his party would join hands with Congress for Mayoral polls. The decision was taken at a meeting with the partys core group to discuss strategies for the election. Gowda said the final decision on the alliance would be taken in a meeting between KPCC President G Parameshwara, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Kumaraswamy. "Mallikarjun Kharge, who is a senior Congress leader, had told our partymen to hold talks on the issue at state level since it is a matter concerning corporation poll and there is no need for intervention of High Command," he said. Asked if his party had bargained for getting ...
