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.
