In a letter to Mehta, Usha Shetty, the petitioner, says she differs with the reasons given by the Attorney General. A-G Venugopal in a letter to Shetty noted that Bhaskar’s comment appear to be “a factual one and is a perception of the speaker. The comment refers to the judgment of the Supreme Court, and is not an attack on the institution. This does not offer any comment on the Supreme Court itself or say anything that would scandalise or lower the authority of the Supreme Court.” In February, Bhaskar reportedly said, “We are living in a country where the SC states that the demolition of Babri Masjid was unlawful and in the same judgment rewards the same people who brought it down.” MEMBERS of the Karnataka Government Medical Officer’s Association (KGMOA), who were protesting against the suicide of Dr Nagendra -- the Taluk Health Officer from Nanjangud -- due to work pressure, called off their strike on Sunday .

He got the school building painted with his own money . His gesture has won appreciation from all -- Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar to Zilla Panchayat CEO T Bhooblan to the people. Amidst financial difficulties, he has spent around Rs 30,000 to ensure that the school where RIGHT from Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president D K Shivakumar and former Chief Minister and Legislature Party Chief Siddaramaiah to other Karnataka Congress leaders have firmly put their weight behind AICC interim president Sonia Gandhi and the Gandhi family to head the party at the national level. Even as for mer Kar nataka chief minister Veerappa Moily is said to be one of the signatories to a letter seeking changes in the party leadership, Shivakumar on Sunday evening wrote a two-page letter to Sonia Gandhi urging her to continue as AICC president. Terming leaking of the letter seeking a change in leadership to the media as an act of indiscipline, Shivakumar said such acts will set a bad example. He insisted that if Sonia had decided it was time for a change in leadership, then Rahul Gandhi should be persuaded to replace her. “Anyone can discuss anything within the party forum, but signing such a letter and leaking it to the media is indiscipline,” Shivakumar told The New Indian CONTINUED ON: P7 Express. 6th floor, Manjushree Building, SDM College of Medical Sciences & Hospital Campus, Sattur, Dharwad - 580 009, Karnataka, India FULL COVERAGE P4 UNIQUE CELEBRATION ANUS HA RAVI @Bengaluru SHRI DHARMASTHALA MANJUNATHESHWARA UNIVERSITY EX P R ESS N E WS S E RV I C E @Bengaluru KARNATAKA TEST POSITIVE ON SUNDAY Randeep Singh Surjewala, Congress spokesperson SONIA Gandhi offered to step down as interim Congress chief on Sunday, a day before the crucial Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, after 23 leaders shot off a letter seeking a change in leadership. Sonia told General Secretary Organisation K C Venugopal to convey this to the party leaders who wrote the letter, sources said. As per party rules, the Congress chief has to send resignation to the CWC. Sources said she will do so on Monday at the CWC meeting, even as Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala denied reports of Sonia resigning. Following the dissent letter by a group of senior party leaders, several party men including Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot and Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Bhagel, as well as several state Congress chiefs rallied behind the Gandhis. They called upon Rahul Gandhi to take over if Sonia steps down. However, sources said Rahul is unwilling to lead the party. They added that at the CWC, Sonia will be requested to continue to lead the party while a process is rolled out , to look for a new chief and restructure the organisation. Sources revealed the reason the letter was leaked in the run up to Docs, other med staff call off state-wide stir Islamabad/Lahore: The Pakistan government has declared former PM Nawaz Sharif, currently in London, an ‘absconder’ and approached the UK government for extradition. 5,938 Reports of Sonia Gandhi resigning from the post of Congress interim president are false Ashok Gehlot, Rajasthan CM UK approached to get Sharif back: Pak the CWC meet was because many senior leaders feel sidelined as Rahul continues to call the shots in all major party decisions, without taking formal party responsibilities and mostly being inaccessible to the party’s rank and file for any consultative processes. Along with sister Priyanka Gandhi-Vadra, Rahul is also said to have been rather critical of party leaders for not taking on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his policies rather gingerly and not as much as required. “They (the signatories of the dissenting note) want the matter to be discussed in the CWC and a process for time-bound restructuring of the party to be rolled out soon,” said a senior leader. Sonia took over as interim chief on August 10, 2019 after Rahul stepped down, taking responsibility for the party’s Lok Sabha debacle. “She was reluctant and was convinced to lead the party for the time being, on the understanding that the party would start the process of looking for a new chief. But that did not happen,” said a senior party leader. The issue of leadership vacuum was raised by several leaders during a parliamentary party meeting with Sonia last month. Leaders who have written to Sonia include, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, Kapil Sibal, and Shashi Tharoor.
