BENGALURU: On the first day of the new year, chief minister BS Yediyurappa had a luncheon meeting with top officials to discuss ‘Vision 2022’ and the Bengaluru Smart City project, seeking speedier execution of major works.
Newly appointed chief secretary P Ravi Kumar, his predecessor TM Vijay Bhaskar, Bangalore Development Authority chairman SR Vishwanath and officials from key government departments were present at the meeting. Citizens’ complaints about excessive road digging by civic agencies in Bengaluru also figured in the discussion.
Yediyurappa reportedly directed officials to ensure that by 2022, all Smart City projects in the state were completed without further delays and there was proper coordination between agencies, including electricity supply companies, municipal bodies and police.
According to an official, Friday’s review was the first of five meetings that Yediyurappa has scheduled to discuss budgetary requirements of the state. He plans to meet MLAs from the Hyderabad-Karnataka, Mumbai-Karnataka, Madhya Karnataka, coastal Karnataka and Mysuru regions. The meetings are likely to be held at a hotel in Bengaluru from January 4 to 7.
