Ministers' meet to discuss City development
Bangalore, DHNS:
BJP MLAs and ministers representing Bangalore city have resolved to hold regular meetings to discuss the overall development of the city.

The decision was taken at a meeting of BJP MLAs representing the city, convened by BWSSB, BT and IT minister Katta Subramanya Naidu, and Transport Minister R Ashok, who is in charge of Bangalore city. The meeting was held at a government guest house, after the morning session of the Legislative Assembly.

The BJP, which won 17 of the 28 Assembly constituencies in Bangalore city, has a major role to play in the development of the city. Katta Subramanya Naidu reportedly told his party colleagues that the people of the city have great expectations from the BJP rule. “We have to make efforts to fulfil their needs,” he said.

The MLAs were told to convey the requirements of their constituencies, to the ministers concerned, without delay. The ministers resolved to hold regular meetings in the presence of the ministers in charge, and review the progress achieved in various works.

The meeting lasted for over an hour. MLAs listed out major problems concerning their constituencies. They suggested that the government take steps to improve basic amenities, which would help the party in the forthcoming BBMP polls.

Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Suresh Kumar, Rural Development and Panchayat Raj minister Shobha Karandlaje, and Higher Education minister Aravind Limbavali were among those who took part in the meeting. The next meeting will be convened on June 27.


Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Tuesday assured that his government will ‘change the face of Bangalore’ in terms of infrastructure development over the next two years.

“The whole world is looking at Bangalore. My government will perform up to the expectations towards transforming the city into a model one in the country,” he said, at a function in Vidhana Soudha. He further promised that the government will appoint an officer to exclusively look into complaints and suggestions given by citizens on basic amenities and infrastructure.
