PM Narendra Modi in Bengaluru News Highlights: Opposition says Karnataka govt turned statue unveiling by PM Modi into a BJP event – The Indian Express

Bengaluru News Highlights, 11 Nov 2022: The Opposition JD(S) and Congress accused Karnataka’s BJP government of turning the unveiling of a statue of the 16th-century founder of Bengaluru, Kempegowda, into a party event on Friday. In a series of messages on social media, the JD(S) criticised the BJP for not inviting former prime minister H D Deve Gowda to the event despite the party president’s contributions to the city.
PM Modi unveiled the 108-feet bronze statue of Nadaprabhu Kempegowda. He has inaugurated Terminal 2 at Kempegowda International Airport. Soon after touching down in Bengaluru on Friday, PM Modi flagged off South India’s first Vande Bharat Express and Bharat Gaurav Kashi Darshan train at the KSR Bengaluru station.
A day before PM Modi’s visit, the state unit of the Congress wrote to him about “the pathetic states of affairs due to the corrupt BJP government in Karnataka and the shocking inaction by the central government”. The letter, jointly penned by Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president D K Shivakumar and legislature party leader Siddaramaiah, took a dig at the ‘double engine’ government and accused it of neglecting the state.
A slugfest over inviting leaders of the Opposition parties for the unveiling of a statue of Bengaluru’s founder Nadaprabhu Kempegowda has erupted in Karnataka.

The differences were over the protocol allegedly not being followed by the BJP-ruled State government in extending the invitation, particularly to former Prime Minister and JD(S) leader H D Deve Gowda.

With JD(S) terming it as an insult to Gowda and people of the State, and accusing the government of turning the unveiling into a party event, the BJP hit back by releasing the letters written by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai to various dignitaries inviting them and they included Deve Gowda. (PTI)

“The procedure is subject to further examination of the doctor who has to conduct such a procedure and if in the opinion of the doctor, such a procedure would cause harm or injury to the life of the petitioner, the doctor shall be the final deciding authority as to whether to go ahead or not with such a procedure,” the HC said in a recent order.

After the Janata Dal Secular (JDS) alleged that former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda was not invited for the inauguration of 108-feet bronze statue of Kempegowda, minister of higher education and IT BT Dr Ashwath Narayan Saturday said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had himself invited Deve Gowda and all the former chief ministers of Karnataka for the event.

Narayan said Bommai had invited Siddaramiah, H D Kumaraswamy and S M Krishna personally to the inauguration ceremony and that all political leaders have great respect for Deve Gowda. Read More

Experts expect a roadmap of action to combat climate change from COP27
As COP27 spotlights discussions around climate change, experts expect the conference in Egypt to come up with a roadmap to combat climate change and achieve net-zero emissions targets.
Ramya Natarajan, group head of climate change mitigation at the Center for study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), said, “Climate change impacts have been felt across sectors–record high temperatures and extreme heat costing lives and livelihoods, floods and other extreme weather events destroying crops and livestock… Such climate change induced impacts could impede the achievement of even basic development goals such as food security, housing for all, thermal comfort etc, thereby deteriorating quality of life.”
