HASSAN: ‘’Administration is not an easy task for the Chief Minister as he can take vital decisions only if his Cabinet colleagues cooperate,’’ said former prime minister H D Deve Gowda in Arsikere on Sunday. Indirectly criticising the ongoing political drama in the state BJP government, Gowda said prominent schemes would reach the people only if the CM, ministers and bureaucracy work together.
Presiding over a function organised to lay the foundation stone for new drinking water project and underground drainage system at a cost of `125 crore, he said the CM cannot discharge his duties up to the expectations of the people if he is sticks to his chair. Power is temporary for all parties and coalition governments will rule the states in the future, he predicted.
Inaugurating the function, Housing Minister V Somanna said the government is committed to provide potable water to rural parts and will come up with rural-oriented schemes soon.
Lauding former CM B S Yeddyurappa for implementing his dream projects like hut-free state by 2015 and poor and downtrodden oriented programmes, he said the most projects were taken up and funds released for new schemes during his tenure.
Law Minister Suresh Kumar and MLA Shivalingegowda were present.
