CM’s Janata Darshan now once a month

CM’s Janata Darshan now once a month

Following his doctor’s advice, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has decided to hold Janata Darshan once a month, said a release from the Chief Minister’s Office.

Kumaraswamy had officially launched Janata Darshan on September 1.

He had said that he will hold the public grievance meeting every Saturdays at his home office Krishna.

While he gave the meeting a miss the very next week, he held the Janata Darshan at Belagavi last Saturday (September 15).

The Chief Minister’s Office has now said that Janata Darshan will be conducted once a month in Bengaluru and a district headquarter alternatively. The date and place for the next Janata Darshan are yet to be announced.  

Ironically, both Janata Darshan and Grama Vastavya (village stay) programmes, which had gained popularity during Kumaraswamy’s previous stint as chief minister, seem to be jinxed.

Kumaraswamy has undergone two heart surgeries. Soon after his second surgery - a few months before the Assembly elections, he announced that he will not take up the village stay programme, citing that he was susceptible to respiratory infections.

According to the Chief Minister’s Office, Kumaraswamy developed fever after both the recent Janata Darshan programmes.

Sources said that senior cardiologist C N Manjunath, who also happens to be his family doctor, had advised him to reduce the frequency of Janata Darshans, as it is taking a toll on him.

Kumaraswamy is said to be meeting nearly 2,000 to 3,000 people during each
public grievance meeting.
