Gadkari advises Karnataka ministers on `image` building
Bangalore: BJP President Nitin Gadkari
on Saturday advised the state ministers to focus their attention
towards building the Karnataka government`s "image".
Gadkari, who is here to attend the Backward Classes
convention, along with Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa held a
two-hour long session where he gave tips to ministers on
improving their performance.
The BJP chief, a former PWD Minister of Maharashtra,
asked the ministers to concentrate on maintaining their good
"reputation" and also that of the government, state unit
General Secretary Prahalad Joshi told reporters here.
Gadkari`s tips comes in the wake of controversies like
the rape charges on former minister H Halappa and a cheating
case filed against Minister for Social Welfare D Sudhakar.
The image of the first ever BJP government in the
South had taken a beating after resignation of Lokayukta
Joshi said the party President also asked the
Yeddyurappa government to implement programmes in agriculture
and irrigation sectors by providing sufficient allocations.
Some ministers presented Gadkari with a report on the
performance of their ministries, but there was no assessment
of individual ministers performance today, he said.
Yeddyurappa will convene another meeting of his
ministerial colleagues on July nine, at a resort where their
performance would come under the scanner.
