Yeddyurappa to distribute sarees today

Around 15,000 women will receive sarees in the first phase of the implementation of the scheme. The Chief Minister will distribute sarees to 50 women symbolically and several schemes at Sir M Visvesvaraya stadium.

As many as 2,000 police personnel have been deployed in the wake of JD(S) warning to stage demonstrations.

The district administration has imposed Section 144 as a precautionary measure, to avoid miscreants from creating nuisance at the venue.

Speaking to mediapersons in the City on Sunday, Deputy Commissioner Dr P C Jaffer said, “As it is a government programme, we request everybody to participate and make it a success.”

He said that necessary steps will be taken out against those who stage demonstrations.
The JD(S) has warned of blocking roads in several parts of the district on Monday.
