During the interview, Mr Trump described the Queen as “a great woman, such a great person, a historic person”.

“The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong.”

“It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada.

“Now they have left Canada for the US however, the US will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

Contacts of two South African nationals test -ve for Covid: Karnataka minister | Latest News India

Published

on

The primary and secondary contacts of the two South African nationals who tested positive for the Covid-19 have tested negative, Karnataka health minister K Sudhakar said on Tuesday.

Sudhakar on Monday had said the sample of one of the South African nationals, who tested positive for Covid-19, is ‘different from the Delta variant’. Refusing to further divulge details, the minister said that he is in touch with the Union health ministry and the Indian Council for Medical Research officials.

Two travellers from South Africa tested positive for Covid-19 in Bengaluru and their samples have been sent for genome sequencing to determine the variant. Officials said they tested positive for Covid during the RT-PCR tests conducted at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). The first passenger arrived in Bengaluru on November 11 and the second arrived on November 20. Both were in quarantine after the positive result.

“We have sent the samples for further genome sequencing and results are expected in two to three days. But both patients don’t have any symptoms. In fact, they didn’t even require hospitalisation but we have kept them in a hospital as a precautionary measure,” he said.

A new variant of the coronavirus, classified as Omicron, has spread in several parts of South Africa, forcing many countries to shut their borders. Karnataka has instituted a mandatory test-on-arrival, and a seven-day quarantine thereafter if people are negative.

“We are taking every possible step to contain the spread of the new mutant strain. However, it is said to be spreading rapidly and I’m afraid we cannot stop it as India sees an influx of millions of people every day, being a large country. What we can do, however, is contain it,” the minister added.

Sudhakar also said that he has sought a detailed report on the Omicron variant. “We will get clear information on December 1 about how the Omicron behaves after the genomic sequencing. Accordingly, we will initiate all measures,” he explained.

Speaking about Omicron, Sudhakar, a medical professional, said he has spoken to doctors working in South Africa, who told him that the new variant is not as dangerous as the Delta variant.

Town planning officials give nod for building on disputed plot | Coimbatore News

Published

on

Coimbatore: The city corporation’s town planning officials have given a two-year extension for building approval for a residential house on a plot at Krishna Colony in the east zone after the intervention of the Madras high court.
The town planning approved the extension through an order dated October 6, 2021.
However, the building approval, which was given in 2016, was cancelled by the then corporation commissioner in 2019 after learning that the approval was obtained by fabricating documents.
The 2,796 square feet plot at Krishna Colony was part of the 30 feet road as per the layout approved by the DTCP. The worth of the plot is more than one crore rupee. The layout owned by the National Workers House Building and Benefit Society was approved by DTCP in 1977. Subsequently, 131 plots were earmarked and sold on the 13.4 acres.
D Robinson Selvam, who claims ownership of the disputed plot, is also the owner of plot numbers 62 and 63 located next to the disputed plot. He allegedly named the disputed plot as 62A and forged documents to get building approval, despite knowing that it was part of a road. He soon started constructing a building.
He approached the Madras high court in March 2021 complaining that officials had cancelled the building approval without giving him an opportunity to explain his position and to extend the building plan approval so that he could finish the construction activity.
According to activist S P Thiyagarajan, the high court in its order on August 16, 2021, directed officials to provide an opportunity for Robinson to explain his side and take a call based on legal standings. But the town planning officials had acted in favour of the applicant in haste instead of going by documents available, Thiyagarajan alleged.
He urged the corporation officials to take action against the town planning officials responsible for acting in favour of the violator and to demolish the under-construction building.
When contacted, deputy commissioner of city corporation Dr M Sharmila said that she has instructed officials to check the genuineness of documents submitted by the applicant. Appropriation decision will be taken on the issue, she said.
