A health official working with Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) said, “The African national had come to Bengaluru from Ethiopia for a kidney treatment at a private hospital. He did not show any symptoms of monkeypox then. We can confirm only after the results of the samples come in. There was another traveller from Brazil who did not possess yellow fever certificate, so we put him in isolation at a general hospital in Jayanagar. The Union government has mandated all those arriving from South American and African nations to possess yellow fever vaccination certificates. He was later released from the hospital.” Read More

One of the things he was reminded of was his October 2021 justification for a vigilante form of justice prevalent in the district, favoured by both right-wing Hindutva groups and radical Islamic elements in the communally polarised region. (Read more)

A DAY after Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said he was ready to adopt the “Yogi model” to deal with “anti-national and communal elements”, his higher education minister, Dr C N Ashwathnarayan, said on Friday that the state government would “go five steps ahead of Uttar Pradesh” and was “ready to even carry out encounters”. “We are ready to send shivers,” he warned.

“The patience of the people is being tested by provocations. This is why our Chief Minister has said that such criminals and murderers will be dealt with mercilessly. We are even ready to carry out encounters, our Chief Minister has said in the government,” Ashwathnarayan, former Deputy CM of the state, told reporters in Ramanagara region, where he is the district in-charge minister. (Read more)
Just a year in office and with nearly one year to go for assembly elections, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai seems to be searching for the way forward. A relatively late entrant to the BJP, this former Janata leader has, by all accounts, been under pressure to push the Hindutva agenda in government. The rhetoric of a section of the ruling party has been divisive and polarising.
Now, the heinous murder of a BJP Yuva Morcha worker near Mangalore on Tuesday has turned the BJP cadre restive. Bommai has responded to this by offering to emulate Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and crack down on “anti-national and communal elements”. But this rash offer of adopting the “Yogi model of government” is fraught – politically, legally and economically —for Karnataka. It may win Bommai some reprieve from the hardliners within the BJP, but it could hurt the state’s prospects in the days to come. (Read more)
