In what was a festive atmosphere, thousands of devotees who arrived at the lake with idols continued to carry out nimajjans. Apart from devotees, mandap organisers with medium-sized idols made a beeline for the People’s Plaza on PVNR Marg Road and immersed idols using cranes which were installed at the site, while others gathered near the PVNR statue, NTR Marg Road and at Sanjeevaiah Park, and immersed the idols after conducting poojas. The immersions, which started early in the morning, picked up pace as the day passed, while devotees continued to arrive in two and fourwheelers, and small trucks. On September 9, the Telangana High Court had banned immersion of Ganesha idols made of PoP in Hussainsagar and other water bodies in the city. But the orders did not have any impact on the devotees. Meanwhile, on Sunday, Acting Chief Justice of High Court MS Ramachandra Rao did not allow a House Motion on the court’s directions against immersion of PoP Ganesha P4 idols in Hussainsagar. ‘Innovation spaceship’ T-Hub 2.0 ready for take-off: KTR The T-Hub 2.0 building, located near Mindspace junction in Hitec City, was built at a cost of `276 crore and is almost ready to be inaugurated Spread over 3.5 L sq ft The T-Hub 2.0 facility has 3.5 lakh sq ft of builtup space — much more than the first phase of T-Hub housed at IIIT Hyderabad campus in Gachibowli, which has a built-up space of 70,000 sq ft.

Stating that the facility with 3.5 lakh sq ft of built-up space, was , India’s largest technology incubator and the world’s second largest, he said it would be home to more than 2,000 start-ups when it gets operational. “The innovation spaceship is ready to take-off ! T Hub 2 is almost ready Telangana continues to strengthen its in. novation ecosystem,” he tweeted, sharing pictures of the building constructed near Mindspace junction in Hitec City, at a cost of `276 crore. The facility was supposed to be completed by the end of 2019, but it was delayed due to P4 various reasons, especially the pandemic. FORGET the short list, he was not even on the speculated long list to become outgoing chief minister Vijay Rupani’s successor. The BJP on Sunday pulled a rabbit out of the hat by giving the chief ministerial baton to political greenhorn Bhupendra Patel, a first-term MLA with no ministerial experience. Seen as a protégé of UP Governor Anandiben Patel, he represents her Ghatlodia seat in the Assembly Patel, . 59, later met Governor Acharya Devvrat along with Rupani to take stake his claim for the hot seat. He is also associated with a couple of Patidar outfits as well. A civil engineer by qualification and builder by profession, he will take the oath of office and secrecy on Monday . The soft-spoken, low profile Patel SYLLABUS ROW Why oppose univ chapters on RSS icons, asks Tharoor E X P R E S S N E W S S E R V I C E @T’Puram CONGRESS leader Shashi Tharoor on Sunday came out in support of the controversial Kannur University syllabus that includes chapters on RSS ideologues V D Savarkar and M S Golwalkar. “What is the point of going to universities if you want to read only what you like?” Tharoor asked. The reaction from the flamboyant Thiruvananthapuram MP, considered the intellectual face of the Congress, comes at a time when the party’s leaders in the state have taken up cudgels against the Sangh Parivar for the inclusion of RSS ideologues in the syllabus for the post-graduate students of Kannur University . Tharoor, a celebrated author and orator, recalled that he had quoted at length on Veer Savarkar and M S Golwalkar in his books and then refuted them. The Congress’ MP said it is foolish to believe that ignorance of someone’s ideas will help one defeat them. “Some friends disapprove of my stand that academic freedom requires us to read, understand & debate every point of view, including those we disagree with. If we don’t read Savarkar & Golwalkar, on what basis will we oppose their ideas? #KannurUniversity also teaches Gandhi & Tagore. Intellectual freedom is far too important a value in our society to be sacrificed at the altar of party politics,” he tweeted. J’KHAND SCHOOL AIMS TO BE GYM FOR KIDS’ BRAINS will now lead the state BJP to polls in 2022. “The selection of Bhupendra Patel is a master stroke of Anandiben Patel. The BJP has killed many birds with one stone. It is also to checkmate Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel because both come from the same region and are Kadva Patels, a subcaste of the Patel community,” said senior journalist based in Gujarat, adding it will also possibly end Patidar agitations in the state. After Union ministers Narendra Singh Tomar and Pralhad Joshi flew in from Delhi as observers, they held a series of meetings with senior party functionaries. The matter was first discussed in the core committee meeting before it was taken up at the BJP legislature party meeting. The proposal to elevate Bhupendra Patel was moved by Rupani, after which almost all lawmakers fell in Bhupendra Patel will take oath as CM...Only the CM will be sworn in tomorrow. The new cabinet will be formed after consultation with senior leaders in a couple of days C R Paatil , BJP state president line. Most of the 112 MLAs of the party in the 182-member Assembly were present at the meeting. However, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel, who was in the race for chief ministership, left the meeting without making any statement, while BJP’s state unit president C R Paatil had earlier said he was not a contender for the top post. In Uttarakhand too, the BJP chose Pushkar Singh Dhami as chief min- ister though he had no ministerial experience. Patel will be the first-ever CM from Ahmadabad. He won the 2017 Assembly elections from Ghatlodia, defeating Congress candidate Shashikant Patel by a margin of over one lakh votes, the highest winning margin in that election. His Assembly constituency is part of the Gandhinagar Lok Sabha seat represented by Union minister Amit Shah. Death in 30 days of +ve test to get Covid stamp E X P R E S S N E W S S E R V I C E @ New Delhi THE demise of any person within 30 days of being detected Covid-positive at hospital or home shall be treated as Covid death irrespective of comorbidities for issuing a death certificate, according to the latest guidelines framed by the Centre. The guidelines shared with the Su- preme Court came after the court’s June 30 verdict, which had sought clear steps to simplify the norms for issuance and correction of death certificates and official documents. The certificates must state upfront the exact cause of death, that is, ‘death due to Covid’, to enable dependents to get benefits of welfare schemes, the SC had directed. To determine the benchmark, the Centre’s affidavit cited a study by Indian Council of Medical Research, which found that 95% of deaths take place within 25 days of being tested Covid positive. Also, Covid cases admitted in hospital/in-patient facility who continued as the same admission beyond 30 days and later died, shall be treated as Covid deaths. Those unsatisfied with the death certificate can submit a petition, the guidelines stated. BECAUSE A HOUSE IS NOT BUILT EVERY DAY P8 WITH THIS ISSUE THE ESSENTIAL CAMPUS DIGEST YOUR LIFE COACH 28 PAGES, INCLUDING 16 OF edex (TABLOID) TS to seek more time to decide on GO 111: KCR E X P R E SS N E WS S E R V I C E @ Hyderabad THE State government has decided to seek more time from the Telangana High Court for taking a decision on the relevance of GO 111, which proscribed construction activity in the catchment areas of Osmansagar and Himayatsagar on Hyderabad’s outskirts. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, at a review meeting with officials at Pragati Bhavan here on Sunday took a decision to this effect after , the Telangana High Court asked the State government last month to furnish within four weeks the report of the high power committee constituted to decide the relevance of GO 111, in the wake of conflicting arguments in its favour and against. The Chief Minister said that one has to keep the interests of the people and that of the city in mind while taking a decision on GO: 111. It will be his responsibility to ensure that lakes and greenery are protected and at the same time, the real estate sector gets the necessary fillip. He recalled that Osmansagar, Himayatsagar, Konda Pochamma and Mallannasagar reservoirs cover an area of 11,000 acres that needs to be protected. At the same time, the forest land in about one lakh acres needs to be protected to ensure the maintenance of ecological balance. The officials apprised the Chief Minister that GO No: 111 covered 84 villages in an area of 1.32 lakh acres in 538 sq km. This is roughly equal to the GHMC area. The Chief Minister said that unless the city is developed in accordance with a foolproof plan, the water bodies and the residential areas might get polluted. To prevent this problem, planning has to be done for the identification of green zones, evolving a sewerage master plan, putting in place a drinking water network and spacious roads so that a great city could be bequeathed to the posterity, Rao added.
