Smart India needs Smart Voters

There are enough articles published in various news papers mentioning that smart cities need smart mayors, smart councillors, smart administrators etc. And smart India may need smart prime minister, ministers, bureaucrats etc. But we have totally forgotten about need for smart voters in smart cities & villages, smart states and smart India. Currently we have 'Intellectual Politics' run by selected class of elite people supported by elite intellectuals. What we need is 'Smart Politics' supported by smart voters to the true spirit of democray not autocratic intellectuals dictating norms.

Who are smart voters? Whether it is possible to create them? Yes, smart voters can be created by educating & making them aware of current political situation. Only informed voter can take an educated decision & vote smartly. What is happening so far is voters are kept in darkness by politicians by letting them remain illiterate or by controlling mass communication media, social media etc to spread biased informations. The concerned ones have to break this stagnant situation and reach out to voters directly by finding out media means which still care for freedom of speech. Creating literate voters using internet and then spreading the information further down to internet-illiterates is a mammoth task but not an impossible one.

In the remaining parts of this post I am going to discuss political, economical & environmental situation of Karnataka as my knowledge of my home state is better compared to my knowledge of other states and its assembly election is scheduled in next few months. In the text below NMCC Karnataka means North, Malenadu, Central and Coastal Karnataka. Malenadu includes Coorg (Kodagu) also.

And the same secular party is now getting ready to promote 'Soft Hindutva' for winning Karnataka's assembly election. What is 'Soft Hindutva'? The secular forces have long back distinguished the words Hindu & Hindutva. As defined by them Hindutva means communalism or terrorism so whether 'Soft Hindutva' means 'Soft Communalism' or 'Soft Terrorism'? Or does it mean imposing your beliefs on others after declaring traditional rituals of hinduism as superstitions? Or does it mean handing over temples under government control back to hindus breaking the myth created by British that hindus are not capable of ruling anything including temples? ('Hard Hindutva' party was supposed to do this. But they ditched tha Hindus and in fact taking more temples under government control.) Or does it mean that coming up with entrepreneurship schemes needed to increase per capita income of hindus, number of hindu entrepreneurs in par with other leading religions/communities of the world? Does it mean to promote Hindus from being nationalist to globalist by converting them as multinationalists owning many MNCs like followers of other dominating religions of the world? And then prove to the world that 'Hindu growth rate' need not be poor? Or does it mean just the drama of visiting temples? Be careful if you visit temples after consuming non-vegeterian food without caring for sentiments those orthodox, superstitious devotees of temples they may not vote for you!

So, we can conclude that both seculars & communals are equally capable of creating communal & casteist tensions to consolidate their votebanks. For this election I am not concerned with communal-secular games & casteist games played by politicians. The villan keeping us busy in this game using politicians is in the background. The way our environment getting degraded is telling us a different story that we may not survive to play secular-communal, casteist games unless we act quickly! We are kept in darkness about this issue by the secular-communal game players. My concern is Karntaka is growing in an ecologically & economically unsustainable, regionally non-equitable way. We are destroying westernghats. North-east Karnataka is polluted with thermal & cement plants but people of north-east Karnataka get neither electricity nor houses, for that matter not even productive jobs. They just wonder where the electricity & the cement produced by them are disappearing. How can they see when their sight is impaired by pollutant black air coming out of these industries? Why the government is not showing interest to build at least solar power plants instead of thermal power plants in this region also just like it is doing around the capital region?

We can almost say with confidence that the only city which is growing in Karnataka is its capital city. The entire state's money is invested in developing this city from the begining itself. Every citizen of Karnataka (& even India) has contributed to the growth of this city by paying tax. So many offices, institutes, industries of the central and the state governments are established here using the tax money of all people of Karnataka. Every Kannadiga has payed for developing the ecosystem of this city. We hoped that one day the capital city will pay back NMCC Karnataka with interest and develop ecosystem for growth in these regions also. But what our elected representatives are doing? Nothing. They just say there is no ecosystem in these cities which we know already & demanding for the same! Why politicians are not showing interest in building ecosystem in NMCC Karnataka? Whether Karnataka voters mandated them to build ecosystem in only one region of Karnataka? If these politicians don't know how to develop ecosystem in NMCC Karnataka then let them at the minimum make way for the people knowing how to do it.

But look at the sad growth path of our capital city also. The real estate mafia has already turned many of its lakes into real estates and remaining ones into burning & foaming lakes. Unscientific growth of this city is turning it into a huge 'Urban Heat Island'. (Bengaluru will be a deadly city in another five years). It is not only destroying itself but also destroying whole Karnataka for getting its water, electricity & other needs. It is a pensioners paradise of yesteryears turned into a garbage city! Did Kannadigas invested & wished for this type of a city as their capital? Oh yes, the government wants to convert this into an electrical vehicles city! That is all politicians and their bureaucrats can think of. (Karnataka govt to bring action plan for electric vehicles policy, Firms showing interest to invest in manufacture of electric vehicles: Minister, The state policians want their fond capital to be first electrical vehicles city of India. And their plan may be to pollute NMCC Karnataka with more thermal plants for supplying electricity to achieve this.)

To understand inequitable growth of Karnataka we have to know how this city grew to such a size? How it became IT capital of India? Isn't it by depriving other regions of Karnataka from the central and the state government sponsored educational & research institutes? Isn't it by giving darkness to other regions to ensure 24x7 power supply to attract industries to this city? Isn't it by dropping plan for medical colleges in NMCC Karnataka - Govt. likely to drop plan to set up six new medical colleges but prioritizing Bowring and Lady Curzon Medical College of the state capital? (No funds for opening six medical colleges: Siddaramaiah). Isn't it by getting first priority for roads, JNNURM, Solarcity, TenderSURE, worldclass railway station, electrical vehicles etc etc? Isn't it by treating NMCC Karnataka Kannadigas as second class citizens and giving them second priority?

NMCC Karnataka cities are treated as street dogs fighting for throw away grubs. The cities are made to fight with each other for IIT, IIIT, AIMS. Why? Because bulk of the government investments of these types of institutes goes to a single city & a region! Rest are forced to fight with each other for rare cases which are thrown at them. Now the state government is playing a big startup drama when majority of the startup companies identified from NMCC Karnataka for government funding are having R&D centres in the capital city itself. All because of real estate mafia blessings on politicians ruling Karnataka & the centre! Yes we know the real estate mafia has invested a lot in region around our capital city. They have huge land banks there. They want to generate value for their land using the government money. They ask the governments to invest huge money to bring electricity, water to this region spoiling NMCC Karnataka. They want the government to spend money on ring roads, new towns for increasing the value for their land reserves. But are the politicians building this city for Kannadigas? Here are a few sample stories of Kannadigas.

Most migrant labours come from Karnataka in Kasaragod, Wayanad
Migrants choose Pune over costly & crowded Mumbai
50 years on, why are Kannadigas feeling like outcasts in Goa?
The plight of Lambani migrants of North Karnataka tells a sad tale

Yes, Karnataka needs a polarized election! Not on communal-secular or casteist lines as political parties want but on regional lines. NMCC Karnataka should unite and vote against regional imbalance. And the migrants of NMCC Karnataka to its capital in search of jobs & paying high prices to real estate mafia for accommodation should support this cause to save Karnataka! We need support from environmentalists staying in the capital city also to save Karnataka and its current capital from the clutches of real estate mafia and their puppet politicians.

Now is the ripe time for street dogs fighting with each other for throw away grubs to put their mouth in the capital city's food or the food of real estate mafia of the capital city itself and tear it into pieces & eat!

Good that Skill University promised for Kalaburagi district though I thought minister will favour his own home district. Whether 'Indian Institute of Skill Development' will also come within campus of Skill university? In a similar fashion all below mentioned universities can be set up as a part of knowledge cities along with corresponding Indian Institute of Domain-specific Technology & Management & Informatics in different parts of NMCC Karnataka. For example Textile University should have 'Indian Institute of Textile Technology' and 'Indian Institute of Textile Industry Management & Informatics'. 'Indian' is just suggestive name, if Karnataka government sets up it could be called 'Karnataka Institute of Textile Technology'. But calibre should be the same. All items listed below should be in the party manifesto if it wants to harvest votes in NMCC Karnataka. This is the food or the fertilizer to be supplied to us to grow their votes!
  • 24x7 electricity in NMCC Karnataka on first priority.
  • 24x7 water in NMCC Karnataka on first priority.
  • Investors meet exclusively for NMCC Karnataka.
  • Knowledge city - one each of 2000 acres in Hubballi, Kalaburgi, Mangaluru and Davangere instead of 9000 acres at Bidadi. And remaining district headquarters of NMCC Karnataka will have at least 200 acres of knowledge city each. What are the institutes to be in these knowledge cities should be planned as per regional reguirements and planned 'Domains of Excellence' (economic specialisation, 'Verticals of Excellence' based on SWOT & theme) of the region. So, Bidadi knowledge city project stands cancelled - Bengaluru development body to try landpooling for Bidadi Smart City project.
  • No more the central and the state government funded R&D and training institutes in the capital region. All these funds should go to NMCC Karnataka.
  • Aerospace Park in Belgaum instead of Devanahalli.
  • One NMIZ (or special investment region or clusters of SEZ, SAZ etc) each for each belt/cluster of cities of NMCC Karnataka.
  • Defense manufacturing clusters in Karwar, Belgaum, Hubballi, Vijayapura & Kalaburgi. (The defense corridor can be further extended to Visakhapatnam connecting eastern naval base with western naval base).
  • Aerospace University in Belgaum.
  • Automobile & Spices Universities in Hubballi.
  • Steel & Mining University in Bellary.
  • Water University {1,2,3,4} in Vijayapura.
  • Pharmaceuticals University in Bidar.
  • Skill & Rail Universities in Kalaburgi
  • Energy University in Raichur.
  • Textile/Fabric & Apparels University in Davanagere or Shivamogga.
  • Cement, Building & Construction University in Chitradurga
  • Horticulture Universities in Chikkamagaluru, Bagalkot.
  • Food Processing Universities in Hassan, Haveri & Yadgiri.
  • Marine and Chemicals Universities in Mangaluru.
  • Biomedical University in Udupi
  • Tourism University in Uttara Kannada
  • Sports University in Kodagu/Coorg.
  • Law Universities in Kalaburgi, Davanagere & Mangaluru.
  • Manufacturing Universities in each belt/cluster with 'Indian Institute of Manufacturing Engineering' & 'Indian Institute of Manufacturing Management & Informatics'.
  • Medical Universities in each belt/cluster.
  • One university each in other districts of NMCC Karnataka (Koppal, Gadag).
  • 'Indian institute of eminence' status to Gulbarga University.
  • AIMS in Raichur.
  • 'Indian Institute of Biodiversity' (both terrestrial & marine) & 'Indian Institute of Defense Technolgy' in Karwar.
  • 'National Institute of Solar Energy' in Raichur or Vijayapura.
  • 'Indian Institute of Information Technology' in Shivamogga in addition to ones in Dharwad and Raichur.
  • 'Indian Institute of Biotechnolgy' or 'Biotechnology University' in all four belts/clusters.
  • Biotechnology incubation centres & parks in all four belts.
  • Skill Development Centres in all districts of NMCC Karnataka on first priority.
  • Innovation hub for agri-startups should be set up in all belts/clusters of NMCC Karnataka. Not in the capital city. (State to set up innovation hub for agri startups)
  • The state government benfits for startups in the capital city should be canceled & diverted to the startups in NMCC Karnataka zone. Startup benefits to NMCC Karnataka should be 100%, Regions surrounding the capital city 50%, the capital city 0%.
  • Highcourt circuit bench in Mangaluru like in Hubballi & Kalaburgi.
  • Belgaum or Davanagere capital - In next five years all administrative offices should be ready. This year our elected representatives did assembly drama in Belgaum without being present - Revealed: Trick used by Karnataka MLAs to bunk Assembly sessions). As a punishment to this starting from 2018 March itself Belgaum will be the capital of Karnataka. And then they should permanently stay & rule from either Davanagere or Belagavi once one of them is developed as capital. (Actually this will not be punishment once they develop these cities sincerely.). Highcourt offices should also be shifted to the new capital or better to Davanagere.
  • One International Airport for each belt/cluster.
  • Taking Godavari basin water to Krishna basin is relatively economical but taking water to Cauvery basin is a costly affair due to altitude differences & distance (check the map). (Centre plans to transfer surplus Godavari water to Cauvery: Nitin Gadkari). Just plan for transporting Godavari excess water to Krishna. And then Krishna & Tungabhadra water for drinking needs of North & Central Karnataka along with one each metro city of 40-50 lakhs population for Mumbai-Karnataka, Hyderabad-Karnataka and Central-Karnataka. The metro region can be a cluster or a belt of cities like Vijayapura-Gulburga and Shivamogga-Davanagere-Bellary. Or all NMCC clusters/belts combined together with coastal belt as single belt like Hubballi-Belagaum-Vijayapura-Gulbarga-Bellary-Davanagere-Shivamogga-Hassan-Mangaluru-Udupi-Karwar-Hubballi with population of around 2 crores to 3 crores. This belt could be called as 'NMCC Karnataka Maalaa'. That means cancellation of expansion of cities of South-East Karnataka.
  • Linganamakki water should also be used for developing Shivamogga and Davanagere belt with a new city in between them. And this plan should be cancelled - Dual piping and Linganmakki in BDA water plan. We don't want NMCC Karnataka polluted by thermal power plants or to waste our valuable electricity for pumping water to a city at higher altitude.
  • All e-governance works funded by the state government & the central government's Karnataka share should go to NMCC Karnataka IT companies. In this way IT industry should be developed by the state government in NMCC Karnataka in a similar manner to the central government's BPO promotion scheme for tier-II/III cities.
  • As Karnataka's capital city boasts of best eco system in the country all government investment in the city & surrounding areas should be stopped and only private investment should be encouraged to investment including for metro rail etc. The saved government money should be used for development of NMCC Karnataka.
  • Expansion plan for the capital city should be cancelled completely. Along with this all these projects should be cancelled - Will extra 80 sq. km accommodate growing population?.
  • Instead of spending money to expand a single city by constructing outer ring road the same money should be used for developing ring roads in the cities of NMCC Karnataka. And project to be cancelled for the capital city is Rs. 8,000 crores for outer ring road development, Govt plans ring roads worth Rs 36290 cr in 28 major cities.
  • No prority to CBIC to get Kannadigas vote - Eye on Karnataka poll, Centere to expedite Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor. We need corridors passing through NMCC Karnataka to be developed on priority basis.

Population of the capital city will grow only if government invests on things like Industrial Parks, Innovation Parks & Knowledge cities. If we take out all government investments to other cities to create ecosystem & to attract private investments then population will grow in those cities instead of the capital city. Note that it is politicians and bureaucrats who contributed to the growth of the population of this city by skewed policies. For example, once the banks were nationalized the headquarters of these banks were relocated to this city from the coastal Karnataka by bureaucrats and all further infrastructure like training, BPO were created in this city contributing to its population. The central government is also restricting the growth of non-megametro cities by not allowing international flights to tier-II/III destinations in the name of developing international hub airports. In this way Kannadigas from other parts of the state are forced to move to this city as employment generation policy is not favouring other parts. Only when NMCC Karnataka unite & vote we can defeat the waste body called BDA which is nothing but a servent of real estate mafia of the capital city.

'Our government' should just reverse the policy of building population of a single region. If no party responds positively to our demands then we will vote for independent candidates in the upcoming assembly and general elections. If independents are also indifferent then we will press NOTA button. We will defeat every party which don't have capabilities to develop brands for other cities of NMCC Karnataka. Yes, we will defeat the villan namely the real estate mafia of the capital city unitedly! We will defeat this mafia, the master mind behind secular-communal games, bringing bad names to NMCC Karnataka cities by subjecting us to riots and then increasing their land value in the capital city! We know politicians behind these riots are puppets of real estate mafia of the capital city. We have about 140 seats and let us wait & see whether there is any bidder ready to participate in the auction of these seats by agreeing on election manifesto listed above!

Many of environmentalists in the capital city are going to support NMCC Karnataka on this. They are afraid of overgrowth of their city leading to ecological degration and are wishing for uniform urbanization across Karnataka to fight against climatic changes. They are with us to force both the central and the state governments to spend its money for development works in NMCC Karnataka with first priority.

Once this is done the garden city of bygone years will become garden city again. And we will return 'pensioners paradise' back to the pensioners of this city. In fact by careful planning we should be able to create four more 'pensioners paradise' in NMCC Karnataka. But our wish should be to convert whole Karnataka & India as 'pensioners paradise', 'childrens paradise', 'women paradise' etc.

A couple of politicians of NMCC Karnataka have the habit of demanding for investments going to other parts of NMCC Karnataka instead of contending with the capital city for investments. I request them to fight unitedly with NMCC Karnataka against the capital city's real estate mafia.

A few of the points listed above are further explained below against each news item.

Satellite towns can unclog big cities
BENGALURU: Developing satellite towns at par with cities by providing better infrastructure will lessen the burden on major cities of the state and thus there can be uniform development across Karnataka, feel experts. At present, the state’s population is 6.25 crore, of which 1.25 crore are in Bengaluru.
A big no to satellite towns as they are meant for increasing the population of the capital city region. As I posted earlier opt for remote satellite towns in Davavagere, Bellary, Hubballi, Mangaluru etc.
He suggests that Karnataka should be divided in six zones with a major city in that zone acting as the zonal anchor, while the surrounding smaller cities and towns can be considered for development as satellite cities for the anchor city. “There is a need to develop satellite cities. If we improve them, investments will flow in. At the same time, airports in Mysuru, Belagavi, Mangaluru , Hubballi need to be used more frequently with more flights. People who are investing in these will make all the more difference,’’ he said.
Not six but five zones. Five zones should be North-West Karnataka (Mumbai Karnataka, Kittur Karnataka), North-East Karnataka (Hyderabad Karnataka, Kalyana Karnataka), Central Karnataka, South-West Karnataka and South-East Karnataka. International Airports are to be developed for North-West Karnataka at Huballi or Belgavi, North-East Karnataka at Kalaburgi or Vijayapura, Central Karnataka at Ballari or Davanagere or Shivamogga (Ballari being shifted from NE Karnataka to Central Karnataka, Vijayapura shifted from NW Karnataka to NE Karnataka), South-West Karnataka at Udupi (Padubidri with MIA converted to domestic airport). South-East Karanakata does not need anything new as it already has a very very big city & next big city. For NE Karnataka even a new city with international airport could be planned at Jewargi. When Gujarat can plan for a new mega city at Dholera why not Karnataka have new cities of accommodating around 30-40 lakh people at Jewargi near Kalaburgi and Honalli or Hadadai between Shivamogga & Davanagere? (I am against mega cities exceeding 50 lakhs population so does not like proposed mega cities of Dholera or Amaravati). Liganamakki water can be used for supplying drinking water to Honnalli/Hadadi and it can be the new capital city. With planned diversion of Godavari water to Krishna, excess water of Krishna can be used for developing new city at Jewargi.

These four zones of NMCC Karnataka should be given more autonomy in administrational activities so to safeguard culutral and linguistic diversity of Karnataka.

We need big cities for harvesting the benefits of economic agglomeration. We have selected verticals based on 'domains of excellence'. We build economical, educational, institutional infrastructure around our 'domains of excellence' for reasons mentioned in a earlier post. Though this restricts horizontal integration through economics of scope all types of legally allowed vertical integrations can take place within a city. Though we are looking for economic agglomeration we will not do it beyond a limit so not to feel negative effects of agglomeration including Urban Heat Islands. (read also my old post #238 in this thread on page #12 and post #295 above in this page). That restricts population to around 50 lakhs in a belt/cluster. But the zone will have many more tier-III cities.

Eye on Karnataka poll, Centere to expedite Chennai-Bengaluru Industrial Corridor

This party wants to win 150 seats. 50% of these seats should be from North Karnataka and rest are mainly from Central, Malenadu and coastal Karnataka. What will NMCC Karnataka get in return? Nothing. After winning the requisite number of seats the party wants to build CBIC, ring road to the current capital etc etc.

CBIC is not much beneficial to Karnataka people and against interest of NMCC Karnataka which wants internal Karnataka corridors to be developed on priority basis. So, NMCC Karnataka Kannadigas are going to revolt & vote against any party favouring CBIC dumping interior Kannadigas' interests. Our demand is to prioritize 'NMCC Karnataka Maalaa' or Hubballi-Belagaum-Vijayapura-Gulbarga-Bellary-Davanagere-Shivamogga-Hassan-Mangaluru-Udupi-Karwar-Hubballi belt. Let us see which bridegroom will wear this maalaa by winning swayamvara. (if interested somebody can draw imaginary pictures of prospective bridegrooms with this maalaa).

Telangana agrees to meet Karnataka's drinking water needs in Tungabhadra basin

This water & Linganamakki water should be used for developing Shivamogga-Davanagere, Vijayapura-Kalaburgi-Ballari and Belgaum-Hubballi belts, other towns & villages of NMNC Karnataka. NMNC Karnataka should vote against taking of these waters to Karnataka's capital city region. No water from rivers of Malenadu & Coastal Karnataka including Coorg can be taken for further increasing population of the capital city region. The committment to not deprive these regions of water should be in the election manifesto itself.

On technical terms also using this water for development of NMCC Karnataka is a cost effective solution. For example, taking Godavari basin water to Krishna basin is not a big task but taking water from Krishna basin to Cauvery basin is a costly solution because of distance & altitude differences whichever the way you try to link them.

On Mahadayi issue every party has to talk to its counter part in the other state to arrive at a solution. Vote only for parties engaging in talk with their counter parts to solve this issue within the party level. All parties should submit the result of this talk before the election so that we can give them pass marks. What I think is Goa may agree if we have to use 25% Mahadayi, 25% water from reduced sugarcane cultivation, 50% Malaprabha water as per Godavari-Krishna link plan for developing Belgaum-Hubballi belt. We have to findout a more productive crop with better yield in place of sugarcane so that farmers will not suffer. Anyway urbanization & industrialization also needs farmland. Karnataka's sugar production capacity will not be perturbed if sugarcane cultivation is encouraged in Uttara Kannada & Kundapura through Pashchima Vahini scheme. 25% Mahadayi water will help in initial growth of the belt as Godavari-Krishna linking will take time. Anyway this is just a suggestion.

Yettinahole water should be used by the parched districts specified in the plan only. It should be used neither by the capital city or for building new satellite cities around it. As suggested by a scientist the government should had used money wasted on this for harvesting the water in the region. But alas! All new cities & expansions should happen in NMCC Karnataka only. The population count of the region identified as the parched region should not be increased by any development works other than natural birth if they want Yettinahole water. (In fact population should decrease by reverse migration from the capital city to NMCC Karnataka). Should not touch Aghanashini river or Coorg rivers for supplying water to the South-East Karnataka. All these should also be added to the manifesto of the party if it wants coastal Karnataka votes. And desalination plants deadly for marinelife are to be constructed only under extreme situations. For the time being situation is under control and there is enough water coming from other means for NMCC Karnataka's development.

As far as Coorg is concerned its water problem can be solved just by spending a few crores to construct checked dams and a few vented dams. People should also have to adopt other ground water recharging techniques. Why the state government is not releasing such a small amount is not understandable!

When all new educational & economical infrastructure development works happen exclusively in NMCC Kaarnataka then definitely water demands of the capital region will fall.

The politicians sitting comfortably in the capital city want riots in Coastal and North Karnataka to harvest votes by creating fear in their vote banks. But NMCC Karnataka people are getting ready for war itself. Yes, it is 'Water War' between NMCC Karnataka and Karnataka's capital city region. The day of the war will soon be fixed by the election commission. Surprisingly more than 50% of people in the capital city will be fighting on NMCC Karnataka's side. Let us wait & see how many bandhs will be held in the capital city region for NMCC Karnataka's development on first priority.

Deshpande to Centre: make B'luru India's second capital

We don't want population of Karnataka's capital increased further at the cost of Kannadigas. So make Nagpur the second capital of India. And make Davangere or Belgaum second capital of Karnataka. Kannadigas want jobs to be created in Karnataka for Kannadigas. Let us hope that recent government changes will help UP & Bihar to reduce migration to South India. And let us also hope for best things for Bengal. Faster development of UP, Bihar & Bengal is important for a healthy Karnataka and India. I think if emerging cities of Mangaluru, Kochi, Trivandrum, Kozhikode, Kannur, Goa, Ratnagiri, Nagpur, Dholera, Amaravati, Visakapatnam, Paradeep each has to take around 5 to 10 lakhs of UP, Bihar, Bengal migrants then the problem can be mitigated to certain extent. I think to control population growth the state governments have to cancel all other bhagya schemes and come up with a new scheme called condombhagya. Best charity a foreign organization can do in India is Condom Charity. Otherwise to feed our growing population we need to expand our territory through floating townships which are more economical than space townships as I posted before.

Make a north Karnataka city state’s second capital: Netizens
Please shift IT offices to Hubli-Dharwad, Shimoga, Mangalore, Belgaum.
Shifting of private IT companies is difficult. But it is possible to shift government owned R&D and training institutes. IT/BT offices & startups have flourished in regions where there were well established R&D & training institutes like Delhi, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai etc. But instead of shifting anything first priority should be to create ecosystem by developing knowledge cities in Belgaum-Hubballi, Vijayapura-Kalaburgi-Ballari, Shivamogga-Davanagere, Mangaluru-Udupi belts with the central & the state governments funding. Bidadi Knowledge city & KGF city proposals should be cancelled or should be given a low priority. (But no objection for Tumkur NMIZ). We need the committment to create four knowledge cities in NMCC Karnataka with high priority in the election manifesto itself. Don't worry the youths migrated to the capital city from other regions of Karnataka in search of jobs will also vote for this manifesto.

In addition all e-governance works of the state government & Karnataka's share of central government e-governance works should also be allocated to NMCC Karnataka IT companies only.

Inclusion of Informartics as part of domain-specific university's teaching & research activities results in growth of IT industries through startups. If IIIT creates software engineers, domain-specific Management & Informatics should create domain experts.

Request Smart Voters of Karnataka to vote for a long term solution which will lead to a better ecological and economical sustainance of Karnataka.

Minister’s composting remark at investors’ meet raises a stink

Whatever stink you people are generating smell there itself. NMCC Karnataka is already infested by polluting thermal power plants, cement plants & petrochemical plants, mines to supply fuel, electricity & construction material to you!
