    So Health for Khader sure some hospitals and pvt medicals colleges already have him as VIP for some functions, So sure agents in mangalore will be arranging transfers soon. Irrespective of parties all use the same modus operandi , Its about gettting ur investment back what u spent for elections, U be a MLA probably for a short duration, so u need to amass enough for a life time.

    Abakari Portfolio is given to Jarkiholi Brothers because they are not only Abakari contractors of Belgaum but also "Raja Bhaiyya" of Belgaum.

    Congratulations Mr K J George on your being allotted Home ministry portfolio. We are sure under your able administration you will put law and order in place. Especially DK and coastal karnataka. Please see that communal forces are curbed and banned as we suffered a lot under the previous government.

    I hope to see Mr.K.J. George as Home Minister of Karnataka. His first task should be to bring to justice perpetrators-conspirators-patrons of pub attacks, homestay attacks, church attacks, women attacks by fundamental forces. BJP government had protected the aggressors of these heinous crimes, and punished the victims through police brutalities and subverting judicial/law process to file false complaints against victims. It is a big tragedy that such a master-conspiracy took place under right wing administration. Yeddy had constituted eye wash commissions to further bring pain to the victims. Mockery of justice was at the hilt under yeddi regime.

    Society has a right to know good works done by organisations like BD, SRS, VHP, etc. Are there any good works carried out by these folks for the welfare of their brethren apart from attacks? I am curious to know.

    Health & Family Welfare dept also includes "Family Planning " dept.
    Identify all those families with more than 2 children in the age group of below 16 years and introduce 'disincentive' for them irrespective of Religion.

    Ministry of “Aarogya and Kutumba Kalyanam” goes to U T Khader Bhai. Family welfare also includes Population control measures too. Now let us see how well these measures are implemented in his own community and area. Anyhow best of luck Khader Bhai. Ministry of Education, Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Power should have been gone to Coastal MLAs’ since we need to focus more on later two Ministries

    Forest officials raided Kalladka Bhats premises before Bebiyana was given forest portfolio. Did they have any prior hints as in who'd be their Boss!
    Rama Linga Reddy has been given a plum post where there is chances of mass eating. We hope he continues and maintains the name of KSRTC for being among the best in the regional transport in India in between his eating breaks and address thoe plights of some daily wage workers/drivers & conducts who went on strike few months back and improves the job conditions.
