Akash. It is true that Karnataka politics/people are not as united as TN. We do have a useless regional party (JDS) remember? But they are pro farmer and anti development. Chennai Indian, Just because you have a ruling coalition does not mean that the central government should favor only your state, especially after the 2G telecom scam by the DMK minister. It is sad that our people do not plan for long term development. This project will be better off if it is M'lore-M'sore-B'lore-Chennai rether than just B'lore- Chennai

I doubt if a regional party can ever emerge in Karnataka.....Karnataka is too diverse---People speak different languages in the northern part,southern part,coastal regions .....In my opinion they must divide the state into 3 parts--North,South and Coastal.

JD(s) as per election commission is a national party--They are contesting in Bihar polls as well-For More

Well, Karnataka-One state Many worlds says it all :banana::lol:

I called JDS regional because there was a regional party called Kannada Nadu Party (KNP) which merged with JDS in 2006. There is also no charismatic leader who can start a new regional party. It is prob because of the diversity like you said. And to add insult to injury, there is BSP and AIADMK contesting for MLA and MP seats from Karnataka.

The only person who could have started one party was 'Annavru' but unfortunately he was not into politics. He could have won some seats. It is also bad luck that BJP+ is not in power at the central level when it is in power in Karnataka. When they were in power between 1999 and 2004, we had congress govt in Karnataka. All opposites.

Yeah, its time to divide KA and give the 'rightful share' to various other states as per linguistic norms. Kannadiga population is very less for the size of the state. :lol::lol:

Akash - you guys are occupying lots of 'extra land' and calling it many worlds. :tongue: :lol::lol:

Anyway - just kidding!! No serious args!!

friends, it's to everyone's interest we propose to extend it further to other cities in both the states... but before the project coming to the light itself, if we/ political parties from both states keep adding/ extending, then never the project may come to light even in near future. Once after making one stretch, extending it further to other cities based on the initial results and experience, it will be much more easier task compared to making one full stretch from mumbai to cuddalore / mangalore... remember, after the success if delhi metro's success, in one go all major cities are going for it... same way, first we have to come-up with one such industrial corridor...

and finding the source of investment for such a huge project is also not an easy task... investors will also look into RoI.. may be they should consider doing it in phases .... Chennai -> B'lore is highly feasible option, as many investors will come forward seeing the RoI... and next they can go for B'lore -> Mysore phase as lot many companies are there in that stretch as well.

^^ This industrial corridor is mainly promoted by the Japanese manufacturing companies. For them to transport finished goods out of India, Chennai port is the closest compared to ports in KA. So, Chn-Blore will be given importance. Blore-Mysore will not suit this requirement.

What do they got to do with Bangalore. There aren't many of their manufacturing units in B'lore.

there are not many, other than toyota.. and some plans for daihatsu to launch its own plant. toyota being world's largest market holder, if they expand their india operations, it can go up many folds. currently they are not into small cars in india. given every one entering into small car market, even they should be having plans..fyi.. their china market is 13+ million units last year... :nuts:

Chennai-Bangalore industrial corridor launch likely

http://www.indianexpress.com/news/Ch...-likely/701938

The construction of a Chennai-Bengaluru industrial corridor and a joint search for valuable rare earth materials, whose production is currently monopolised by China, are expected to be among the major strategic projects to be announced in Tokyo on Monday by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Japanese counterpart Naoto Kan.

The decision to build a Chennai-Bengaluru industrial corridor will mark the deepening of the Japan-India Special Economic Partnership Initiative launched a few years ago and underline Japan’s strategic commitment to India’s rapid economic development.

A new bilateral initiative on rare earths, which are needed for the production of a range of high technology goods, will help frame the convergence of the Indian and Japanese interests in securing strategic natural resources at a moment when China is leveraging its monopoly for political purposes.

Delhi and Tokyo had announced in 2005 two ambitious mega projects to modernise India’s lagging infrastructure. One was dedicated rail freight corridor (DFC) to move goods between Delhi and Mumbai. The other was an develop a Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) all along the new rail line to be built between the two cities with Japanese assistance at a cost of nearly US$90 billion.

The decision on Chennai-Bengaluru corridor will extend the concept to peninsular India. Delhi and Tokyo also plan to link this new corridor to Southeast Asia as part of an effort to integrate India into the Asian industrial production chains.

As in the Western corridor, the Southern Corridor too will involve the development of green cities, industrial parks, special economic zones and the development of new ports. This high quality infrastructure will be developed through collaboration between private and public sectors of India and Japan.

China, which today controls more than 90 per cent of world’s production of rare earths, started curbing the exports of rare earths to Japan last month after their recent spat over disputed islands in East China Sea.

Anti-Japanese rallies in China and anti-Chinese protests in Japan have showcased the enduring maritime conflict between Tokyo and Beijing.

As Singh landed in Tokyo amidst the growing between Tokyo and Beijing, the Japanese government urged China on Sunday to restart the exports of rare earths. China supplies nearly 90 per cent of Japanese rare requirement.

As Japan scrambles to find alternative sources for rare earths, it is natural that Tokyo turns to India among others. According to US Geological Survey, India has about 3 per cent of world’s rare earths reserves, located mostly in Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Orissa.

Besides assisting India in the exploration of additional reserves, Tokyo could transfer technologies that can improve the efficiency of its rare earths production. The two countries could also collaborate in the exploration and production of rare earths in third countries.

it is good to see that Japan investing in the South as well. It will be great if they could invest in some high speed rails between major Indian cities. Hope this project starts soon and creates more jobs. Extension can be done later when the need arises.
