Ahead of the Bharat Jodo Yatra entering Karnataka, welcome flexes bearing pictures of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi were seen vandalised in Gundlupet town in the Chamarajanagar district of the state on Thursday.
Congress installed the flexes to welcome Rahul Gandhi, who is scheduled to arrive in Gundlupet on September 30.Other flexes that were put on the highway passing through Gundlupet and had pictures of different Congress Party leaders were also torn, according to reports.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra said earlier that the Bharat Jodo Yatra of the party has turned into a Leave Congress Project. “The Bharta Jodo Yatra has become the Congress Chodo Yatra (Quit Congress Yatra). Ghulam Nabi Azad Ji’s resignation from Congress shows that now there is an atmosphere of panic in the party,” said Mishra in a video he tweeted.
Rahul Gandhi is currently leading the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the party’s first national campaign in decades. The 3,500-km march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir will be completed in 150 days and cover as many as 12 states. From Kerala, the Yatra will traverse through the state for the next 18 days, reaching Karnataka on September 30. It will be in Karnataka for 21 days before moving north. The padyatra (march) will cover a distance of 25 km every day.

HC notice to Delhi Govt, MCD on PIL seeking remedial steps to save cows
The Delhi High Court has issued notice to the Government of NCT Delhi and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) on a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking direction from concerned authorities to take immediate remedial steps to eliminate the contagious viral disease known as “lumpskin disease.”
The Bench of Justice Satish Chander Sharma and Justice Subramonium Prasad on Wednesday directed the respondents to file a reply within a period of 10 days and listed the matter for 14th October. The plea submitted that Lumpy Skin Disease is a Contagious Viral disease that spreads among cattle, Bovine ( Cow family) through mosquitoes, flies, lice, and wasps by direct contact, and also through contaminated food and water. The disease causes fever and nodules on the skin, and it can be fatal.
Petitioner Ajay Gautam stated that Lumpy Skin Disease has killed nearly 70,000 cattle in the country to date, and numbers are increasing day by day.
It is submitted that the Lumpy Virus disease has created havoc in several states of India, and the most effective states are Rajasthan and Himachal. This disease has now knocked on the doors of Delhi too and has started affecting the cows of the city.
These infected cows require immediate medical attention. This disease can turn into an epidemic. As a result, immediate action is required to prevent the spread of this disease among our holy cows, according to the plea.
According to the petitioner, everyday cows are dying on road due to these reasons, and the helpline number issued is not responding and answering calls/queries related to Lumpi Skin Virus properly. It further stated that the respondents have set up only one isolation shelter for cows in Rewala, Khanpur South-West District, for 4500 cattle. Although there are more than 20,000 to 25,000 stray cows in the National Capital.
The plea further alleges that ambulance service is available for Holy Cows so as to rescue or send them from other parts of Delhi to the South-west district isolation shelter and no place has been identified, allotted or proposed by respondents for the burial of infected Cows.
DRDO to manufacture ‘Make in India’ K9 Scent Pads
The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has been taking the help of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) in manufacturing “Make in India” K9 Scent Pads, which will be produced at 1/100th of the cost of those being procured from abroad.
This initiative of the ITBP to approach DRDO would help all Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs) and state police organisations and security forces, including the Indian Army, in having specific explosive and narcotic scent kits to enhance the olfactory conditioning of K9s or police dogs in the detection of explosives and narcotics. The K9 Scent Pads being used by the dog squad teams of all CAPFs and other police organisations are still procured from foreign countries.
For the project, the DRDO has been roping in their world-renowned biochemistry and material physics experts at the DRDO HQ in New Delhi and the DRDO Gwalior to conduct pioneering research and development to manufacture K9 Target Odor Scent Pads.
This would be a unique, never before attempted “Make in India for India” project to break the foreign monopoly, according to a statement from ITBP.
Dr Sangita Rao Achary Addanki, Director DLIC DRDO, and Dr Om Kumar, Scientist G, a world-renowned biochemistry expert, are leading this project to produce K9 Scent Pads at 1/100th the cost of foreign K9 Scent Pads.
