Bangalore: Deputy Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa, who reviewed the functioning of a few Ministers last week, is expected to conduct a full-fledged review of the functioning of all Ministers commencing from Monday.

Sources in the Deputy Chief Minister's secretariat said that it would be a detailed exercise.

It had been undertaken since a major part of the Government's expenditure on development works generally starts in November.

It was mentioned that Mr. Yediyurappa would also interact with legislators of both the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Janata Dal (Secular) and sort out their grievances, if any, relating the various Ministers.

It is common knowledge that legislators have been unhappy with some of the Ministers since the latter apparently have not yielded to some demands being made by the legislators, particularly relating to transfer of government officials.

Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy would not be participating in the review exercise since he would be away in New Delhi to call on several Union Ministers, including Sharad Pawar (Agriculture).

Mr. Kumaraswamy who left for New Delhi on Sunday soon after returning from a tour of Bellary and Chikmagalur districts would be back in Bangalore on Tuesday.

Mr. Yediyurappa said that apart from the Ministers, the BJP MLAs from nine districts would be called for an interaction to discuss the development works in their respective districts and Assembly constituencies.

The progress achieved in the ongoing development works would also be discussed at the review meeting.

Speaking at the sidelines of a special cardiac and medical camp for media personnel organised by the Karnataka Voluntary Blood Donors Association jointly with the Electronic Media Cameraman's Association and Wockhardt Hospital, Mr. Yediyurappa said that the various development works that were being carried in the nine districts and their progress would be reviewed.

Earlier, inaugurating the medical camp, the Deputy Cheif Minister said that media personnel go through a lot of stress owing to pressure of work and medical camps such as this one would be helpful to them.
