Active Almora fault led to increase in earthquakes in 2023: Rijiju

IndiaTimes Wednesday, 6 December 2023
The activation of the Almora fault in western Nepal was the reason for earthquakes in parts of north India and Nepal, Earth Sciences Minister Kiren Rijiju said on Wednesday. In a written reply in Lok Sabha, he said the activation of the Almora fault triggered significant mainshock earthquakes on January 24 (5.8 magnitude), October 3 (6.2), and November 3 (6.4). These mainshocks, accompanied by subsequent aftershocks, led to an increased frequency of earthquakes in 2023, Rijiju said, adding that the background seismicity remained unchanged during this period.

Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Prajwal Revanna, the incumbent MP of Hassan Constituency | Oneindia

The Hassan Lok Sabha constituency is often referred to as the 'Republic of JDS' due to the strong influence of the Gowda family. This district is home to former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, former Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, and HD Revanna, all of whom wield a firm grip on the Vokkaliga vote bank. The community's loyalty to the Gowda family has resulted in repeated election wins for Deve Gowda whenever he contested. His grandson, Prajwal Revanna, secured a victory here in the 2019 elections, showcasing the enduring dominance of the JDS, despite Deve Gowda's loss in Tumkur. It was the only seat JDS won in the previous election. The JDS is confident in securing victory again in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. #PrajwalRevanna #Hassan #LokSabhaElections #KnowYourMP #HassanMPPrajwalRevanna #JDSMPPrajwalRevanna #IndianPolitics #JD(S) #KarnatakaPolitics #PoliticalCareer #Leadership #ElectionCampaign #HassanConstituency #PoliticalJourney #ElectoralStrategy #CongressLeader #PrajwalRevannaInHassan #PoliticalMilestones #IndianDemocracy #ElectionDecision #CongressParty #VoteForRahul #PoliticalLegacy #CampaignTrail ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.155~
