CM seeks Krishna`s help to persuade Obama visit B`Lore
Bangalore: Karnataka Government today
requested the Centre to persuade US President Barack Obama to
include IT hub Bangalore in his itinerary during his upcoming
visit to India in November.
Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa called on External Affairs
Minister S M Krishna at his residence here and asked him to
persuade Obama to visit Bangalore to "witness the strides it
had made in IT and Bio Technology sectors".
Yeddyurappa during his meeting with Krishna, who was the
state`s chief minister between 1999 and 2004, also handed over
a letter of request, highlighting the efforts that the
Congress leader had undertaken to build the image of brand
Bangalore during his regime.
"Your Government (Krishna) has put Karnataka on the world
map. India`s economy has boomed because of Bangalore. Out of
250 biotech companies in the country, Bangalore is home to 140
of them. Please bring US President Obama to Bangalore to
witness the development that happened in your regime and also
during the BJP rule," Yeddyurappa said in his letter,
according to sources close to Krishna.
The BJP government recently held a Global Investors Meet
and signed MoUs to attract about Rs four lakh crore
investments with various firms.
