BANGALORE: Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda has expressed satisfaction over completing six months in office and said he was confident of completing his term in office.

Speaking to reporters, the Chief Minister termed his administration in the last six months as “corruption free, transparent and people friendly”.

He had taken oath on August 4 succeeding B S Yeddyurappa, who was compelled to step down after the Lokayukta report on illegal mining indicted him.

“I was apprehensive when I assumed the office six months ago. But now, I have overcome those tense moments. Now, I feel I have got an opportunity to do some good work,” he said.

Listing out some of the “achievements” of his six-month-old government, Gowda said he succeeded in bringing in a citizen’s charter law, a legislation to curb land grabbers and a sand policy among others.

He said his review of various departments over implementation of budget programmes has indicated that all the departments have achieved about 70 per cent progress so far and by March end, 100 per cent target would be met.

Gowda expressed happiness over the “smooth running” of both Houses of the state legislature after he became the Chief Minister, unlike the stormy affair witnessed earlier.

“The Assembly session is going on smoothly now. The Opposition parties are also cooperating,” he said.
