Safai Karamcharis panel orders resurvey of manual scavengers 21.2.2018 Deccan Herald - City
Even years after implementing the Employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act, 1993, the government does not know the number of manual scavengers in the state. This came to light when the members of the National Commission for Safai Karamcharis and BBMP officials held a meeting on Wednesday in connection with the recent deaths of manual scavengers in the city. Manzar Valjibhai Zala, commission chairperson, and Jagadish Hiremani, member and representative from South India, ordered the Palike officials and also the district administrative heads of eight districts in Karnataka to undertake a resurvey and find out how many manual scavengers are there in the state. The exercise will be conducted in districts such as Mysuru, Chitradurga, Kolar, Davanagere, Bengaluru and Dharwad.

Metro destroying Pattandur Agrahara Lake, say residents 21.2.2018 Deccan Herald - City
Yet another city lake could be losing its identity. This time, the culprit is Namma Metro. Shockingly, the authorities concerned are looking the other way. Local residents say metro workers have been dumping debris and construction waste in Pattandur Agrahara Lake, East Bengaluru. The lakebed has almost dried up and resembles a barren land. Interestingly, the dumping happens mostly at night. It all started in September 2017, according to Sandeep R A, a resident. The matter was brought to the notice of the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), the waterbodys custodian, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA) and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB). But no action was taken. Now, the lakebeds height is being increased so that it resembles the buffer zone of the lake. "It is actually the lake which is being encroached on," Sandeep said. Govind, another resident, said: "Every night, trucks unload construction ...

Temple trust moves HC against BBMP direction to get trade licence 21.2.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The high court directed the BBMP to not take any precipitative action against a temple trust while hearing a matter with regard to an impugned notification issued by a health officer. The Palike had directed the trust to stop all activities in the shared-covered hall of the temple and had asked it to obtain a trade licence to conduct any activities in that hall. Kashipathi, president of Muneshwaraswamy Temple Trust, had moved the court challenging the notification. Justice Vineet Kothari, while hearing the petition, orally observed that the activities of the trust do not fall under the commercial activities and thus it does not need the trade licence. The court observed that even functions like marriages can be conducted on a temples premises and a temple does not need the trade licence to conduct an activity most of which comprise religious events.

The Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar, who sought to move an adjournment motion in this regard, described the state government as "a goonda sarkar" and accused it of trying to protect Congress legislator N A Hariss son, Mohammed Haris Nalapad, who brutally beat a youth at a city pub last Saturday.
