The ministers would also summon the respective officers and review the performance of various Central government sponsored programmes, he said.

While Union Labour Minister M Mallikarjun Kharge has been assigned with the Belgaum revenue division, Union Minister for External Affairs S M Krishna was assigned with the responsibility of monitoring the Bangalore revenue division.
