Chief Secretary Kaushik Mukherjee on Thursday said that the government will focus on addressing infrastructure bottlenecks in Bangalore.
Addressing presspersons here, Mr. Mukherjee said that “the infrastructure of Bangalore will be reformed.”
Mr. Mukherjee, who earlier held several major postings in the State administration, said that the government would make sincere efforts to improve the city’s roads and tackle traffic problems.
To a question on holding contact programmes to address grievances of the public, he said that the administration at the district-level would be toned up for effective delivery of services.
Deputy Commissioners in the districts should monitor the work of their sub-ordinates to ensure timely delivery of welfare schemes, he said.
Taking note of the harmonious relationship between legislators and civil servants in the State, Mr. Mukherjee said that problems, if any, between the two would be solved through mutual discussions. There were no financial constraints for implementation of various welfare schemes launched by the Siddaramaiah government, he said.
The Chinnaswamy Stadium, which has been developed as a green stadium, would be officially inaugurated during the one-day international match between India and Australia on November 2, where the captains of the two will sign on a specially made “green wicket”, the Chief Secretary said.
