The murder of a 17-year-old college student in 2014 is set to rock the forthcoming Karnataka Assembly session, slated to begin in Belgaum from June 29. Yallalinga Kuruba, who was killed on January 11, 2014, was conducting RTI inquiries into suspected irregularities in the implementation of the MGNREGA scheme in the Hullihyder gram panchayat in the north Karnataka district of Koppal. The opposition BJP and the JDS have indicated that they will raise the matter in the state legislature over allegations of involvement of state’s Minor Irrigation Minister Shivaraj Tangadagi in the case.

BENGALURU: The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) probing the killing of Yallalinga Kuruba, 17, a class XII student of Koppal district, north Karnataka, found that the prime accused, former zilla panchayat president Hanumesh Nayak, was allegedly keeping track of an RTI application by the teenager and even warned him not file more such applications.

 

Yallalinga was found murdered on January 20 on a railway track in the district, a few days after he filed the RTI application seeking to know the details of funds released and works executed by the Huli Haider gram panchayat.

[h=1]Opposition demands minister's scalp over Koppal RTI activist's murder[/h][h=1]BELAGAVI: Opposition parties in the legislative council on Wednesday stepped up pressure on the Siddaramaiah government to hand over the alleged murder case of Yallaling, an RTI activist and student of Koppal, to the CBI. They also wanted Koppal district minister Shivaraj Tangadagi dropped from the cabinet for allegedly trying to shield the accused in the case.

 

BJP members, including leader of opposition in the council KS Eshwarappa, said Yallalinga of Kanakagiri village was killed by miscreants for raising his voice against corruption in the gram panchayat. He was found dead on the railway track on January 10, and to hush up the matter, his body was hurriedly cremated despite opposition from his family, they alleged. [/h]

Five days before he died, 17-year-old Yallalinga Kuruba, a college student, told a local TV channel called Suvarna Siri that there was widespread corruption in the implementation of government projects in his impoverished village of Kanakapura, in Hullihyder gram panchayat of Koppal district in north Karnataka.

“This is the main road of our village,’’ he said, pointing to a mud path with sewage flowing through it. “It is about a kilometre long, and the entire stretch is in this condition. There is no drainage system in the village. The drains flow on the road. We struggle on these roads every day. No form of development touches our village,’’ he told the channel.

      The recent report of the CSE regarding the use of high levels of pesticides in soft drinks has now prompted a group of well-known names from various fields to go the RTI route.
       
      On Friday, several activists including Prof Yashpal (former chairman UGC), Aruna Roy (RTI activist), Arundhati Roy, Shanti Bhushan, Arvind Kejriwal and Sandeep Pande (both Magsaysay winners) were present at the inauguration of the RTI kiosk in Jantar Mantar.
       
      Prof Yashpal and Aruna Roy proceeded to file requests for information under the RTI Act to several government agencies on the occasion.
       
      The questions addressed to the Central Ground Water Board, Central Pollution Control Board, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Food Processing, covered a gamut of issues, including how much water is being extracted by the soft drink bottling plants, whether the ministries had knowledge of sludge containing various chemicals in discharge of several soft drinks as well as if the government knew the amount of caffeine and aspartame being used in the colas.
