Cabinet sanctions 10 acres for mutt trust

The State Cabinet on Monday is learnt to have sanctioned 10 acres of land to Adichunchanagiri Education Trust for establishing a goshala in Chikkaballapur district.

According to sources, the Cabinet has decided to provide the land on lease to the Trust to set up the goshala at Thippanahalli in Kasaba hobli in the district.

The Cabinet is also learnt to have approved 10 acres for Daivagna Brahamana Gurupeetha Seva Samithi in Shimoga. In another decision, the Cabinet is said to have given its nod for setting up two Kittur Rani Chennamma residential schools for Scheduled Caste students.

With the model code of conduct in place for the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs), the Cabinet decided to defer decisions on a majority of the 106 items listed on the agenda. The code of conduct bars the government from making any new announcement till the completion of the poll process (March 11). 

The government apparently wants to take credit for its Cabinet decisions and decided to defer taking a decision on populist programmes so that they could be announced soon after the ULBs polls and ahead of the Assembly polls.

Listed items

Some of the items listed in the Cabinet agenda but deferred include: providing rice at Rs two a kg for families below the poverty line, permission for Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board to set up secondary sewerage water treatment plants to supply water to industrial areas.

Also included are: 34 more services under Sakaala scheme, construction of a new building on the Bangalore Police Commissionerate campus at a cost of Rs 32.81 crore and upgrading of Mysore Ring Road at a cost of Rs 42 crore.
