BSY shifts all meetings to Soudha
Earlier last week, the CCB office in Bengaluru was shut down as some policemen tested positive after they arrested a burglar infected with Covid-19.
Yediyurappa shifted all scheduled meetings to Vidhana Soudha, the state secretariat. The entire home-office of the CM was sanitised and movement of officials and personnel into the premises barred. The home-office may be shut for a few days till it gets clearance from the health department. Yediyurappa resides in an adjacent building, ‘Cauvery’.
Two days ago, a Vikas Soudha staffer attached to the food and civil supplies department tested positive.
