    This nonsense guy should have called off lockdown today itself. Whole Karnataka is taken out of lockdown and this Poojary wants to show his power against that of cheddi yeddy.

    Tug of war between various selfish politicians giving nonsensical and contradictory diktats & harassing the already half dead common man, read the latest diktat from CMs office:


    Bengaluru, Jul 22 (IANS): Complete lockdown on Sundays and daily night curfew would continue across Karnataka to contain the coronavirus spread, a top official said on Tuesday.

    "Though lockdown will be lifted from 5 am on Wednesday across the state, night curfew will continue daily from 9 pm to 5 am to restrict movement of people and vehicles. Total lockdown on Sundays will also continue on July 26 and August 2," said state Chief Secretary T.M. Vijaya Bhaskar in an order here.

    The order to unlock Bengaluru and four other districts - Dakshina Kannada, Dharwad, Kalaburagi and Kodagu, which have been under 7-9 day lockdown since March 14 night came after Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa declared that lockdowns would not be re-imposed across the state hereafter.

    Inspite of him addressing the CM speech he conviniently left out the part where the CM said no lockdown from wednesday...is this selective deafness or he as a minister does not care about the orders given by his CM???

    Lets be politician later and be logical human first, agreed ; we have to appease a lot to stay active in politics, this is short living. I want my leader to be affirmative and clear with his decision, not dilly dallying . With two different statements in a matter of few hours has projected my leaders capability, i feel sad that hey ate manipulated by vested interests. Hope they wake up and smell their coffee , before its tooo late.

    We have no faith in our state or central government in handling the pandemic situation. But we are left with no option at this moment. Be it Congress or BJP

    Let's all support each other by educating the ignorant and by providing all necessary support to to the best of our capabilities..

    life is first, political party and religion should be the last option...

    Will know the result of unlocking in few days which wil cause increase in COVID cases. Festivals are coming people will gather for sure. Maintaining social distancing wearing mask can prevent. But still by wearing full PPE health workers tested positive. Atleast by lock down can minimize the cases.

    By March the intensity of covid started to grow in India..It's 5 months up..There is no progress rather worsening of situation. The social and psychological impact is the threat of the disease than the disease itself. The amount of suicides, divorce, family issues have increased which may b related to financial issues to an extent. No salaries..no profits..no jobs..job loss..no business..loan payments being stuck. Nobody have an idea how will this subside..may b a vaccine give us hope.
    There are thousands of life threatening disease around us. So better stop counting positive cases and publishing in media rather increase awareness and learn to leave with covid.

    Please Dont do this,

    At least "No public transport" , "Restrict border with other district"

    Need to learn from Kerala,(kasaragod ). See how they are implementing.

    Life is more valuable than business (and govt tax collection)

    Sir I can understand your situation. But try to understand what we are saying. Festivals are near and if you lift the lockdown people will surely gather and you will not able to control it. Though you have requested people not to gather but since the public transportation is available people will move from place to place.

    When the government says,not to crowd...why would peope crowd..
    If they crowd then it's their problem.

    When the govt says,wear masks... Why would people roam without masks...
    Then it's the people arrogance and it's their problem.
    We people don't follow any rules.....let it be shopkeeper, customer..auto.guys.. police...bus personals...all.arrogant dumb people..

    How do you expect th govt to handle such people.

    There are better ways to celebrate festival by following rules.
