This is the 39th in the state and the first in the city. Other stations in Gulbarga, Shimoga, Bellavi, Bagalkot, Bijapur and Tumkur have already started to function. The minister said the government had already sanctioned 41 more special police stations for the state which will become functional by year-end."The government incurs huge losses due to the smuggling of fake Indian-made foreign liquor and spirit from other states like Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.''

The purpose of this document is mainly to achieve all round development of the state and to bring our state to the forefront of developed states of the Nation.
We have classified the development programmes under two major heads.
2. Economic infrastructure.
You may be aware that we could establish six medical colleges in Govt sector within a short period of two years which is an all time record. Every year six hundred more students belonging to all groups are getting admission on the lone consideration of merit in their respective groups of reservation. I am happy and proud to inform you that this achievement was possible during my tenure as the Minister for Medical Education.
Coming to our programmes and plans in the districts of D.K and Udupi, I would like to place it on record that these two districts are in the forefront of all development activities in general and in education and health care in particular. We have to work hard not only to retain our position in the state but also to achieve the first place in the country.
Public private participation is our basic policy for development which is being practiced in these districts. Our Govt is committed to encourage the private sector participation in education, heath, industry and other development activities.
AGRICULTURE: During 1950`s D.K district had a unique position in paddy cultivation. We were one among the first 50 districts in the country which were growing the highest paddy. Contrary to that status, now we are not in the list of prominent paddy growing districts. This is due to the fact that traditional agriculture in our districts are not economically profitable. Our farmers have experimented many change of groups like aracanut, coconut, cashew, pepper, vanilla etc and could not get adequate return. We have to declare these districts as horticulture districts and provide sufficient financial backing with cheaper rate of interest and subsidy. Fruit processing industries are to encourage to achieve viability. Our Govt would examine these proposals and initiate necessary actions.
Our achievement in the field of milk and diary production is very encouraging in the past 40 years. Our total milk production at present is 3 lakh letters per day. We will further strengthen the animal husbandry so that our agriculturists may find an alternative source of regular income.
The tourism potentiality of the coastal areas is not exploited well. There is a good scope to develop tourism by attracting huge domestic as well international tourists we are proposing o provide good facilities like hotels resorts, etc to the tourists by encouraging the private entrepreneur.
Providing drinking water to all the villages has still remained a challenge. Our Govt attaches all importance to the Programmes of drinking water supply to both rural and urban areas.
Fisheries has to be encouraged and sufficient backup to be given. Our Govt has given good support to this activities in the form of subsidy, supply of diesel at the subsidized price, encouragement to the ice industry, formation of fisheries, ports etc. This field is providing employment to lakhs of rural people and we have to further exploit the employment potentiality of this activity.
In the coming days, we have to encourage the automobile, readymade garment, printing, electronics and other small scale industries to create mass employment. Shore based and gas based industries are to be encouraged.
The skills of rural artisans and mechanics have to be recognized by certification is skills which would provide them more employment opportunities and enhance their status.
Whenever we speak about the development of these two districts we remember the name of the Late Srinivasa Mallya, who was responsible for the constructuion of NH 17. However, we were not able to timely strengthen and expand NH 17 and 48. this is high time for the state and the central Govt top take up these projects on top priority. I, on behalf of the state Govt would assure the Govt of India to fulfill all the statutory obligations in this regard, and call upon the Govt of India to speed up the work.
The railway has only a token presence in these two districts and Govt of India has to take initiative to expand the Railway line and to provide Train services. We will take action to provide good Roads to the Railway stations and upgrade these stations. Good Roads will be provided top the International Airport at Mangalore. An Airport is also proposed for Udupi.
Housing activities and industries are facing ,many problems on account of various Land related regulations like land Reforms Act, Land Revenue Act etc. we arre proposing to simplify the conversion of Agricultural Land to non-Agricultural use, Zonal restrictions etc.
We had around 18 custom bound ports which are reduced to two at present, one at Mangalore and the other at Malpe. We have to develop commercial and fisheries ports to boost the economic activities. (Courtesy: Richard Rego`s Blog- ) /Photo: Mangalorean

The seminar was held with the collaboration of the Central Institute of Indian Languages, ministry of HRD, Manasa Gangotri – Mysore University, Karnataka Tulu Academy, Department of Kannada and Culture, and the World Tulu Conference committee.
MLA Gopal Bhandary said that Dr Heggade’s influence and the strength of Tulu as a regional language should get it world recognition after the successful convening of the World Tulu Conference in December. Rajesh Sachdev, director, Central Institute of Indian Languages, delivered the keynote address on the occasion.
Tulu litterateur Yerya Laxminarayan Alva, Karnataka Open University vice-chancellor Professor B Vivek Rai, MLA Gopal Bhandary, and Bhuvanendra College principal Dr Padmanabha Gowda were present.
Home Minister V.S. Acharya said that it was necessary to first recognise Tulu as a State language as this would make it easier to get it included in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution. Dr. Acharya said that Tulu was one of the oldest Dravidian languages. It was a common misconception that Tulu did not have a script, but the fact was that it had a script.
About six decades some scholars used to write in Tulu script. However gradually, the usage of Tulu script had stopped. The UNESCO had made a list of languages which were in the unsafe category and faced a threat of getting extinct. Tulu was among them. This should be taken as a warning and efforts should be made to protect and promote Tulu. “Languages become extinct because of prolonged disuse. We have to protect Tulu,” he said.(The Hindu)

ಕನಕ ಗೋಪುರದ ಕೆಳಗೆ ಇರುವುದೇ ಕನಕನ ಕಿಂಡಿ...ದಿನದ ಇಪ್ಪತ್ತ ನಾಲ್ಕು ತಾಸು ಭಕ್ತಾದಿಗಳು ಇದರಿಂದ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ದರ್ಶನ ಮಾಡಬಹುದು...
ದೇವಳದ ಒಳ ಸುತ್ತಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಇರುವುದೇ ನವಗ್ರಹ ಕಿಂಡಿ...ಹೆಸರೇ ಹೇಳುವಂತೆ ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂಭತ್ತು ಸಣ್ಣ ಕಿಂಡಿಗಳು ಇವೆ.
ಈ ರೀತಿ ಅಜ್ಞಾನ ಭರಿತ ಹೇಳಿಕೆ ಇದೇನು ಹೊಸದಲ್ಲ...ನವೆಂಬರ್ 2008 ರಲ್ಲಿ ಕೂಡ ಇದೆ ರೀತಿ ಗೊಂದಲ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸುವ ಹುನ್ನಾರ ನಡೆದಿತ್ತು...ಓದಿ...ಕನಕದಾಸರಿಗೆ ಹುಟ್ಟೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಲ್ಲದ ಮಾನ್ಯತೆ ಉಡುಪಿಯಲ್ಲಿ!
ಸಾರ್ವಜನಿಕ ಸೊತ್ತು ನಾಶ (ಬಸ್ ಸುಡುವುದು, ಬಸ್ಗೆ ಕಲ್ಲೆಸೆತ, ಕಚೇರಿ ಪೀಠೋಪಕರಣ ನಾಶ ಇತ್ಯಾದಿ) ತಡೆವ ಬಗ್ಗೆ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸಲಹೆ ಇದ್ದರೆ ಕಾಮೆಂಟ್ ಮಾಡಿ. ತೆರಿಗೆದಾರ ಬೆವರು ಸುರಿಸಿ ಕಟ್ಟಿದ ತೆರಿಗೆ ಹಣ, (ತೆರಿಗೆ ಕಟ್ಟದ)ಗಲಭೆಕೋರರ ದಾಂಧಲೆಗೆ ಬಲಿ ಆಗಬೇಕೇ?

Acharya’s statements came during discussions in the Legislative Council on Friday.
The home minister noted that across the state, the population growth rate was negative, except in Bangalore and Koppal districts, where it was “plus 5 per cent” and “plus 2 per cent” respectively.
The population of the 0 to 6 age group, which was 1.43 lakh during the 1991 census had fallen to 1.05 lakh during the 2001 census, he said and pointed out that the ratio of male to female in this age group was 1000:964.
For one thing, there was a need to promote “responsible parenthood” measures among the economically weaker sections, which account for the large number of infant mortality cases, Acharya said and added that there was also a need to convey the message to women in the reproductive age group. (TOI)

Speaking after inaugurating a new police station in Gundlupet on Monday, he said that the government has approached NABARD and other funding agencies to construct houses for policemen. “New Superintendent of Police Offices will be constructed at a cost of Rs 2.4 crore in the new districts,” he said. Acharya said that the government has sought the advice of senior officers to strengthen the police force — including internal security, coastal police, Armed Reserve and other forces.
He said that the then National Democratic Alliance Government and Home Minister L K Advani had ensured enough funds for the modernisation of the police force. He also said that the government has appealed to the Prime Minister for more funds, following the terrorist attacks in Mumbai last year.
“Chamrajnagar and Beggur have been included among 50 new police stations proposed for the state,” added the Minister. IENS
