Gowda sets up CCTVs at office for ‘transparency’
Bangalore: As part of steps to ensure
transparency in administration, Karnataka Chief Minister D V
Sadananda Gowda on Wednesday inaugurated CCTV surveillance camera
operations in his office at Vidhana Soudha, the state
"I wanted to bring in transparency in administration. I
want to start this exercise from my office itself. In the
coming days, after going by the success of this experiment,
the initiative will be extended to all the offices of
ministers," Gowda said.
All the activities that take place in both the offices of
the Chief Minister will be recorded and available on `YouTube`
and can be downloaded on mobile phones, he told reporters
after inauguration of the CCTVs installed at his office at the
secretariat and Home Office "Krishna."
Gowda said initially only video footage will be available
and later audio would be facilitated.
Soon after assuming charge on August 4, Gowda had said
he would install CCTV cameras in his offices so that all the
activities, including those issues discussed, could be
recorded and put on public view.
Gowda took the decision in the wake of alleged scams
rocking the first ever BJP government in the South, in which
his predecessor B S Yeddyurappa is one of the accused.
