Kalaburagi, Karnataka: The Gaur K. village in the Kalaburagi district is now the center of attention for hordes of devotees. Most of them have traveled from afar; just to catch a glimpse of the idols of gods and goddesses of a newly excavated temple.

The plot where the temple is discovered belongs to a local farmer named Sunil Shivappa Dafedar. Mr. Dafedar told that he will proudly donate the land if there is to be a reconstruction of the temple.

The excavation began, at the insistence of Kailashalingeshwara Swami, the head of the Kailashalingeshwar Math. The Swami, claimed that Lord Srisailam Mallikarjjuna appeared in his dream and directed him to search for a temple in the village beneath an agricultural field on the banks of the Bori stream.

He also mentioned that though, he was not believed by the villagers at first, the excavation work which carried on from 25th February to 5th March, revealed an entrance to a structure which appears to be constructed by two massive boulders. Along with this another sanctum sanctorum where the idol of Goddess Brahmaramba is also excavated and the idol of the Serpent God Nagraja is discovered with two more Shivalingas.

The Talukdar Dayanand Patil, who have already visited the spot said that the ASI authorities in Dharwadand and the State Archaeology Department in Kalaburagi has been alerted. And either of them are likely to attend to the discovery on this Monday and unveil more information.

The age and other details of the temple will only be ascertained after the authorities inspect the site further. (With input from agencies)

Swarna Bharat Party condemns government’s healthcare policy in Karnataka

Health policies of Karnataka being opposed by SBP
SBP asks government to work on government hospitals rather then privatising them. Facebook
18th November 2017:
Mr Asif Iqbal, Karnataka State coordinator of Swarna Bharat Party (SBP), today strongly opposed the communist, anti-market and anti-people policy of the Congress Karnataka government to cap healthcare charges in the private sector.
Mr Iqbal said that the Siddaramaiah government should start learning basic economics. Good intentions do not necessarily lead to good outcomes. This communist policy will shut down many hospitals and drive away thousands of health professionals. In this way, it will hurt everyone, including the poor. No communist society has ever done well, and this communist policy will badly harm Karnataka.
In a free market people voluntarily give their custom to the service provider who gives them the best service at the lowest cost. Simultaneously, the desire for profits motivates healthcare providers to provide good quality healthcare while keeping their costs down. And they can’t charge whatever they wish since they are forced by the competition among hospitals to keep prices low. Anyone who makes a profit in such a competitive environment is signalling that he has successfully and efficiently served the people. That is the best outcome for society.
Mr Iqbal said that a government’s role is to create the environment for market-led profitable investments, thereby serving the needs of the community. But instead of identifying and addressing any barriers to investment, the Congress communists are attacking the very existence of the health sector.
Mr Siddaramaiah should remember that the taxpayer does not subsidise private medical establishments, nor should there be any such subsidy. These establishments buy land at commercial rates, pay commercial taxes and get utilities like water and electricity at commercial rates. In fact, SBP understands that most private hospitals and clinics do not break even for the first 5-10 years and most earn barely enough to stay in business.
Mr Iqbal said that instead of Mr Siddaramaiah worrying about the private sector (which is already badly shackled with thousands of rules and infrastructure constraints), he should look within – at the total mismanagement of government hospitals. The private sector is the last ray of hope for the people of Karnataka. Now the anti-people Congress wants to extinguish even this last ray of hope.
SBP also opposes many other aspects of the new health laws, such as a district redressal body that comprises six members but with only one doctor member. Further, there are already several avenues for patients to complain, including consumer courts, civil courts, medical bodies. Creating another body is unnecessary and will only increase fear in doctors’ mind. SBP demands a complete repeal of the new law.
