DH PhotoChief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda will call for meetings and hold disc­u­ssions with the officers from 24 different departments on August 16, 17 and 18. 

The meetings will be held to discuss the shortcomings in various departments and find out ways to improve the prevailing problems.

Informing the same to the mediapersons in Dharmasthala on Saturday, the Chief Minister said that the policies must be made simple enough to make them understandable to the public.

“During my tenure, I would work on simplification of the existing laws and policies for the benefit of the public. As far as criticisms from the Opposition parties are concerned, I am open to them. I will not respond to criticisms at the moment, but I will show it in the form of work. Wait for a month for the results,” he said.

He was in Dharmasthala to offer ‘Vishesha Pooje’ (special pooja) to Lord Manjunatha. The chief minister later held a talk with Dharmadhikari Dr D Veerendra Heggade.

State tour

Speaking to mediapersons in Mangalore, he said he will tour the entire State, starting from Dakshina Kannada, as it was the people of the district who helped him achieve success in his life.

“It was here I learnt discipline and hardwork from the Sangh Parivar at Sanghanikethan,” he added.
