B.P. RAVI IS NEW ZOO DIRECTOR

Quote:
Mysore, July 27 (KK&DM)- The Mysore Zoo Executive Director K.B. Markandaiah has been transferred and appointed as Mysore Range Conservator of Forests.

B.P. Ravi, who was serving as Mysore Range Conservator of Forests, has been appointed as the new Executive Director of Zoo.

Markandaiah had assumed charge as City Zoo Executive Director in July 2010, following which he introduced several reforms in Animal Adoption and Animal Exchange Schemes. Besides, he was credited with the preparation of a masterplan for the Zoo development.

Markandaiah's transfer amidst political uncertainty in the State, has fuelled speculations amongst the IFS officers.

When contacted by SOM, Markandaiah said that he wished to continue as the Zoo Executive Director. But it is inevitable to follow the Government's order, as per which he has been appointed as Mysore Range Conservator of Forests, he remarked.

Cracks in 2 million gallon water tank ignored by authorities

Quote:
MYSORE: Corporation officials are seems to be in deep slumber with reportedly failing to take note of cracks in the walls and roof of ground level 2 million gallon water tank in Yadavagiri locality . These cracks in the walls have reportedly forced engineers to reduce water storage which in turn has made them to cut water supply to old city areas.

200 feet wide and long ten feet high tank built in early fifties has developed cracks long back and a part of the roof has got peeled off. Now officials are storing water to the level of five feet only fearing tank getting burst due to water pressure. These cracks have deepened and widened due to recent rains, complains deputy mayor M J Ravikumar who is familiar as Chinni Ravi.

According to sources authorities are filling the tank to the level of 8 feet for the last four years from the day its walls started showing cracks. Now water is filled only upto five feet the source disclosed , admitting reduced storage affecting water supply to areas of Lashker Mohalla, Mandi Mohalla and Devaraja Mohalla areas which form core part of the city . Authorities who instead of taking up repair works and restore the tanks original capacity of 2 MG have laid pipes to drain out excess water after it reaches five feet level.

It was surprise for deputy mayor who moved by water shortage in old city areas inspected the tank on Wednesday night . I am surprised over the attitude of officials , they have not bothered to repair the tank and instead they are slowly reducing water storage in the tank he said alleging MCC officials being callous towards civic works. Where was the need for MCC to build a guest house at an estimated cost of Rs 1 crore in the tanks vicinity when people are suffering? he asks , adding that he has decided to boycott Thursdays council meeting if commissioner fails to initiate repair works he said.

Superintendent engineer Balsubramanya said there is no problem with cracks , we have taken repair of roof and soon things will be set right he added ruling out any danger to the existence of the tank.

ward committees opposed

Quote:
The corporators opposed setting up of ward committees giving representation to the local residents. The ward committees will decide the works the ward requires and also monitor them. But the corporation commissioner K S Raykar told them pointblank that there is no go but to accept it. Former mayor and JDS member H N Srikantaiah said the ward committee members and the elected representatives could have differences of opinion leading to controversies

Yeddyurappa crisis exposes BJP leadership's fragility

Quote:
Karnataka chief minister BS Yeddyurappa keeps his word and resigns on Sunday, a collective sigh of relief will rise from the BJP's 11, Ashoka Road headquarters in Delhi.

Cornered yet unrepentant, Yeddyurappa has refused to follow the party diktat to quit even two days after the BJP's parliamentary board issued the fiat. The Karnataka CM's defiance has exposed the party's Achilles heel-a weak leadership unable to tame egotistical regional strongmen.

The brittleness of the BJP's chain of command is not one of Delhi's better-kept secrets, but the Karnataka CM's wrangling over his successor, composition of the state cabinet and a stellar role for himself in the state unit has exposed the party's vulnerabilities at a time it is hoping to corner the Congress on graft.

The timing couldn't have been worse for the party as senior leaders Arun Jaitley and Rajnath Singh try and coax Yeddyurappa out of office ahead of the monsoon session, due to begin on Monday.

They may succeed, but the party's bid to present itself as an alternative to the corruption-hit UPA-II has taken a beating.

It cannot be argued that the Karnataka turmoil caught the BJP unawares as Lokayukta Santosh Hegde had served sufficient notice that his report on illegal mining would not spare anyone. Media leaks banished any lingering doubts. The BJP, nevertheless, remained unprepared for the storm, with a blase Yeddyurappa holidaying in Mauritius.

His stubborn refusal to tow the party line indicates how a weak leadership has given state strongmen like Yeddyurappa the room to flex muscle, even believing that they can get the party brass to back off.

It took prolonged negotiations stretching past 2 am on Thursday for the CM to understand that there was no escape route.

The lead up to the crisis was not promising. BJP chief Nitin Gadkari was till recently engaged in settling scores with Maharashtra leader Gopinath Munde, whose bid to join the Congress forced the party to woo him urgently. Munde's pole position in the party's Maharashtra affairs was restored, but the face-off took a toll on RSS-appointed Gadkari's authority. Despite being elevated to national president, Gadkari came across as mired in state rivalries while the more urgent task of making the BJP a cohesive outfit with a well-considered response to issues of the day other than heckling the government fell by the wayside. Only recently Gadkari had set up a policy group, but it has taken a while to happen.

The BJP's power equations remain unsettled and Gadkari's nebulous control is compounded by an ill-defined pecking order, where seniors like Sushma Swaraj, M Venkaiah Naidu, Jaitley and Rajnath Singh are in a cluster. Not lacking in ambition, the younger crop of leaders is not willing to yield to one another, as blame apportioning over the prominence accorded to Bellary's Reddy brothers in the Karnataka unit showed.

The BJP's Karnataka woes have surfaced just when the party feels the Congress-led UPA is at its weakest and more vulnerable than it has ever been in its seven years in office. Along with its NDA partners and a tactical, issue-based informal understanding with the Left, the BJP can hope to isolate the Congress, but Yeddyurappa has given the ruling coalition a talking point.

Not unexpectedly, the Congress has taunted the BJP for being helpless before Yeddyurappa's tantrums. While the episode will not ease the government's burden of graft cases ranging from 2G, Adarsh and Commonwealth Games, it may reduce the differences between the two main parties. Contrary to the famous ad-line for a detergent, the BJP's clothes are looking rather muddy.

DEER SPOTTED IN CITY: CAUGHT AND RELEASED INTO FOREST

Quote:
Mysore, July 31 (KK&KMC)- A spotted deer with antlers caused excitement among the residents in Gokulam area in city this morning, until it was caught by the Forest Department personnel and released in the forest. It is not known whether the deer came from the forests or from one of the few farms or Mutts where the animals are reared.



Luckily for the deer, it was spotted hours before dawn and the attempts to catch it unharmed were made by the Forest Department personnel long before most citizens were out of their beds, today being a Sunday.

The deer was first spotted in the campus of Sri Jayachamaraja College of Engineering (SJCE) by a student at around 3 am. He is said to have somehow obtained the telephone number of DCF Manoj Kumar and informed him about the stray deer.

ACF Gopinath, along with veterinarian Dr. Nagaraj and tranquilising expert Akram, swung into action to catch hold of the 'wild' animal before the citizens could scare it.

By the time the deer-catchers arrived, it had ventured into the compound of Dr. Ramesh, a resident of Vontikoppal, who alerted the Forest Department at 5.30 am. From there it trotted along the Vontikoppal main road, then to Gokulam Third Stage and entered an empty site belonging to Kuvempu Trust, where it hid in the dense weeds and bushes.

It was 6.30 am by then and people started gathering around the site, eager to have a glimpse of the deer. The civilised people saved the deer from being killed by the pack of hungry stray dogs that had chased the panicky deer all the way from SCJE campus. Some dogs did manage to bite the deer on its snout and legs while some whimpered away in pain after being pierced by its sharp antlers.

The deer-catchers, armed with two large nylon nets, attempted to surround the deer and catch it without tranquilising. The deer however gave them the slip and stotted away.

The deer found refuge in the empty space at the PKTB Sanatorium premises along KRS road. It was 8 am. Again chased by dogs, the deer fell into a drain, from where it could not escape.

The deer-catchers then ensnared it in a net, bound its limbs and took it to the Zoo, where it was given first aid treatment and set free in Arabithittu forest along Hunsur road, which is the nearest forest area to the city, close to the Hebbal Industrial Area. The time was 8.45 am.

DCF Manoj Kumar, speaking to Star of Mysore over the phone, suspected that the deer might have either come from Arabithittu forest or from one of the farms or Mutts where they are being reared after obtaining permission from the Forest Department.

"I regret to say that no records of the stock of deer being reared by individuals or private institutions have been maintained. But it will be done henceforth," he said and added that the male deer, when threatened, are dangerous as they attack with sharp antlers and powerful hoofs.
nowadays forest animals are regularly visiting our heritage city
