Housing complexes, park and dialysis centre opened
With model code of conduct likely to come into effect on Wednesday, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was a busy man on Tuesday. He inaugurated housing complexes constructed under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) at Nageshwara Nagenahalli and Seegehalli in K.R. Puram and Vinobha Nagar in Kadugondanahalli, besides several other development projects in Sarvagnanagar.
Handing over the title deeds to a few beneficiaries at Vinobha Nagar, the Chief Minister said that the government was working towards making Karnataka a slum-free State.
