Bengaluru, Aug 4: The State Cabinet has approved the first of its kind Research and Development (R&D) policy, the first of its kind in the entire country, to give a big boost to all types of research, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said in Bengaluru on Thursday.

Participating in the ‘’Sankalp Siddi’’ programme along with Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah, he said Bengaluru is home to nearly 400 international level research centres from Genomatics to Aerospace, which was a record for any city in the world.

Bommai said Karnataka is in the forefront of national development with its emphasis on IT/BI, Technology and Research and hoped to contribute $ 1 trillion in India’s target of becoming a $ 5 trillion economy. The State Government is working systematically by focusing on different sectors of economy, he said.

The Chief Minister said the State Government has unveiled its own employment policy with a focus and special thrust on encouraging employment generating industries. Policies on semi-conductors, electric operated vehicles, renewable sources of energy were some of the new initiatives, he said pointing out that the State has signed MoUs for Rs 110 lakh foreign direct investment in Karantaka.

Hydrogen energy and production of ammonia from sea water were given priority as part of the State’s industrial development efforts, he said.

Karnataka is a leader in the agriculture sector blessed with 10 distinctive climate zones which helps the State to engage in agricultural activities throughout the year. While the State has recorded 1% growth in agriculture sector, the 4% growth in the service sector has enabled the State to reach the 10% growth rate, he said.

Bommai took the occasion to shower lavish praises on the dynamic and farsighted leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah and said their policies will help the country to reach the objective of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.

Union Culture Minister Kishan Reddy, BJP State President Nalin Kumar Kateel and BJP National General Secretary CT Ravi as well as other State Ministers attended the programme.

The Union Home Minister also visited the Yelahanka Mother Dairy unit along with the Chief Minister, Cooperation Minister ST Somashekar, KMF Chairman Balachandra Jarakiholi and other State leaders.

Amit Shah was received at the HAL Airport by State Home Minister Araga Jnanedra, Ministers Govind M Karjol and CC Patil and State BJP President Nalin Kumar Kateel. The Chief Minister honoured the Union Home Minister with a traditional Mysore Peta and flower bouquet.

    Amit Shah doesn’t seem to be fascinated in it and not interested. He understands only Rowdy & Division policy.
