Karnataka to restrict entry points from Kerala in to state: Basavaraj Bommai | Mangaluru News – Times of India

KAUP: With cases of Covid-19 on the rise in neighbouring Kerala and Maharashtra, the state government has decided to tighten vigil in districts bordering these states. The government has reviewed the situation at the highest level and decided to allow people from Kerala into Karnataka through select roads. There are at least 16 entry points from Kerala to Karnataka and people will be allowed into the state only through important roads.
Stating this at an informal interaction with the media after inaugurating police quarters here on Saturday, home minister Basavaraj Bommai said people from Kerala and Maharashtra come to Karnataka for trade, relation and other purposes. It has been decided to make Covid-19 negative certificates mandatory for those coming from Kerala/Maharashtra. Deputy commissioners have been directed to make arrangements to carry out tests at border posts, he said.
Asked about allegations that Mohammed Mansoor Khan, founder of private firm I Monetary Advisory (IMA) Group that floated a ponzi scheme offering investors dream returns on investments having paid off political leaders such as Siddaramaiah and HD Kumaraswamy, Bommai said all these things will be revealed once CBI files its charge sheet. “I do not have information of what Mansoor has revealed to the investigating agency,” he said.
On the massive rally the Panchamasali leaders have organised in Bengaluru on February 21 pressing for their demands on Category 2A reservation, Bommai said senior ministers BC Patil and Murugesh Nirani are in constant touch with the organisers. This issue was discussed at the recent cabinet meeting too and CM has taken inputs from all concerned. “The government will take a legal view on their demands and proceed,” he said.
