Bengaluru, May 2: Welfare of the dalits and oppressed classes is my objective. They should lead a life of dignity. There will be no compromise in ensuring it, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.
The Chief Minister was speaking after launching the ‘Kalyna Mitra’ helpline for the people and a workshop for the officers of Social Welfare department.
The Chief Minister sent a strong message to the officials of the department to pull up their socks and resolve to serve the weaker sections with sincerity. “It is your duty to use the power vested with you for the welfare of these classes. You should have the commitment to deliver the welfare programmes of the government to the people. The department should first raise its capacity to realise the objective of the government,” Bommai said.
Overhaul of administration
