Bengaluru. Jan 28.
I will work 24X7 to build a strong Karnataka, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said in his address after releasing a booklet ‘Bhavya Bhavishyakkagi Bharavaseya Hejjegalu'(Confident Strides towards a Glorious Karnataka), to mark the completion of 6 months of his government.
Eradication of Regional Imbalance
A sum of Rs. 1500 cr has been provided for the development of Kalyana Karnataka region. We have announced to raise this grant to Rs. 3000 cr next year if the Rs 1500 cr is fully utilised. Financial approval has been given to fill 14,000 vacant posts in the region, Bommai said.
Responsive and inclusive
Prime Minister Modi has released the pending grants for the housing projects. Many decisions related to development have been taken in the last 6 months. This is the occasion to place them before the people. This is a responsive and inclusive government. Maintenance of law and order is a prerequisite for development and the Police department has been doing a good job,” Bommai said.
Study on impact of the projects and programmes
The Institute of Social and Economic Change(ISEC) has conducted a study on the impact of various programmes and projects of the government and has brought out a book on it. The Chief Minister instructed the head of ISEC to continue the study and provide him with feedback on the beneficial effects of the projects and also any lacunae in them.
“We have aimed big. There are challenges as well. However, we have the confidence to face them. A strong foundation has been laid for a bright future. We will work with utmost care for the welfare of the people,” he said.
We are ready to play aggressively
“Administration is like a game of football. Nobody will keep the ball for too long. You should pass the ball to the other at the right time and score the goal. Administration too is like the same,” he said.
We can play both defensive and attacking game. We will use the available opportunity for the welfare of the people, Bommai said.
