Bengaluru: Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa claimed here on Tuesday that his government had performed well in its first 100 days despite the natural calamities that had hit the state and promised to change the picture of Karnataka in the next 100 days.

Speaking to reporters here after releasing a handbook on his government's achievements, Mr Yediyurappa said  he had managed to give a corruption- free government, which concentrated on development and the welfare of people.


Declaring that his government was committed to changing things for the better in Karnataka over the next 100 days, he said Bengaluru city would see a new dimension to its development with the help of experts, who were being consulted. Besides, a blueprint for a suburban rail for the city was ready and  work on the project would gain momentum soon to ease traffic snarls, he promised.

As for the rest of Karnataka, the Centre had already cleared the Kalasa Banduri project and the Sudha Murthy committee's suggestions on development of tourism would be implemented.

Playing safe on the Hubballi video tape, which has been accepted by the Supreme Court as evidence in the disqualified MLAs' case,  Mr Yediyurappa declined to comment when asked about the party's alleged report to its central leadership that an insider had leaked it to the media.

When asked about the Supreme Court admitting the video as evidence, he said this was not an occasion to debate the issue.

Asked about allegations that his government was  being partial to  constituencies represented by the disqualified MLAs, he claimed it was giving equal importance to all the 224 constituencies.

On the recent floods that had devastated parts of the state , he said the government had ensured that the affected people got proper assistance. “The ministers worked shoulder to shoulder. Since the NDRF norms of compensation were inadequate, the government enhanced the compensation and made sure the people got the additional money.  But at the same time, other priority sectors were not ignored. The government took action to ensure that the subsidised ration meant for the poor were not swindled by the undeserving,” he asserted.

Claiming that  the state's financial situation was sound, the Chief Minister said that barring the transport department, all the other departments, including revenue, excise, and mines and geology had reached their revenue mobilisation targets.
