Karnataka CM BS Yediyurappa to conduct aerial survey of flood-hit districts | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Chief minister BS Yediyurappa will tour flood-affected districts in North Karnataka on Tuesday, conducting aerial surveys to assess the scale of damage to crops and property.
He is scheduled to visit Belagavi, Dharwad, Vijayapura, Bagalkot and Gadag. Yediyurappa will also visit Almatti Dam to check water levels before returning to Bengaluru that day.
This will be his first major public appearance after he recovered from Covid-19. And it comes amid a slugfest between BJP and Congress over the government’s handling of the floods. DK Shivakumar, president of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC), had stolen a march over Yediyurappa by announcing a visit to North Karnataka first. But he cancelled the plan because of a bad back, for which he has been advised some days’ rest.
“The chief minister woke up only after our party president said he would attend to the problems of the people in flood-hit districts. It’s unfortunate that the ruling party sees it as some sort of race,” said KPCC working president Satish Jarkiholi.
