“At an epochal moment three hundred days ago, our government sprang to life with a bow to the people of Karnataka and a vow to meet their aspirations. Three hundred days may appear too short a period as a yardstick to assess a government’s achievements but, I feel, it is enough to serve as an indicator of the thrust and pace of the administration’s endeavours. http://yeddyurappa.in
My fellow-citizens of Karnataka, you installed us in office with complete trust in us and hope in our ability to take the state forward, after your disillusionment with successive ruling administrations of the past.
http://bjpkarnataka.org Your trust and hope encase us as a protective citadel and we, on our part, will never let you down. You the people have observed the path our government has trodden from the moment I took the oath of office in the name of the farmers, on 30 May 2008. You are aware of the efforts we put in to surmount the crisis arising out of the fertilizer short age right at the dawn of our administration. We have taken other bold measures to wipe the farmers’ tears. Ours is a government that evinces genuine concern for the farmers’ welfare. We have been at the forefront in the implementation of pro-farmer programmes and have been viewed as a model for others. http://yeddyurappa.in
The steps that our government has initiated to ensure that we transform your expectations into concrete benefits have instilled confidence in me. Our admirer who have described us have employed encomiums like ‘three hundred days, hundred of steps’ which might appear as enthusiastic but such expressions certainly are no exaggeration.
http://bjpkarnataka.org Numerous programmes we have launched in the fields of agriculture, education, infrastructure and urban development under our resolve to create a prosperous Karnataka are taking shape satisfactorily. Our pro-people measures are directly benefiting the under- privileged sections of society, farmers, women and children, enabling the development of these groups. The decisions we have reached, the stands we have taken, the directives we have issued and the task forces we have set up are all recorded in black and white.” -Shri BS Yeddyurappa http://yeddyurappa.in
