"I will convene a meeting of IT and BT sector representatives within 15 days to discuss their problems", he told reporters after releasing a booklet on the development programmes initiated by his government in the last three years and highlighting achievements.

A day after completing three years in office, Yeddyurappa said "had not opposition parties impeded development works, I would have put Karnataka in the number one spot in terms of development".

Yeddyurappa accompanied by his some ministerial colleagues listed his government's achievements including offerring of farm credit at one per cent rate of interest, thrust given to irrigation and Suvarna bhoomi project under which Government extends Rs 10,000 assistance to farmers to procure implements.

A sum of Rs 10,000 will be deposited in the accounts of ten lakh farmers by June 15, Yeddyurappa said.
