Low-key 100-day feat for govt

The B S Yediyurappa government will complete 100 days in office on November 3, which will be a low-key affair. 

The BJP came to power on July 26, thanks to the collapse of the Congress-JD(S) coalition, which was followed by one of the worst floods in Karnataka. 

According to sources in the Chief Minister’s Office (CMO), the government is likely to bring out a book on achievements across departments in its first 100 days. The additional Rs 4,000 incentive to farmers under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Yojana (PM-KISAN) that the government has announced, weavers’ loan waiver and the liberal spending on the flood relief are some of the steps that will be highlighted. 

Also, it is said that the government is working on new programmes that will take services to the doorsteps, e-governance initiatives, reforms in the housing sector, among others. 

There was also debate on whether the government should celebrate 100 days or the party. Also, whether it should be held in Bengaluru or in north Karnataka? Brushing all these questions aside, the government is set to celebrate its 100 days.
