Bangalore: Journalists and camera crew from print and electronic media on Friday observed a minute's silence as a mark of respect to Karnataka Minister Dr VS Acharya, who passed away early this week.

Acharya, who held the Higher Education portfolio in the BJP ministry, used to brief the media on the cabinet meeting deliberations for more than two years.

The task of media briefing on cabinet decisions has now fallen on the Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs S Suresh Kumar.

When Kumar requested scribes to observe a minute's silence as a mark of respect to Acharya, all of them stood up and paid homage to the late minister.
