Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday appointed Ministers for each of the eight zonal task forces of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).

While R. Ashok will head the South Zone Task Force, C.N. Aswath Narayan for East Zone, V. Somanna for West Zone, S.T. Somashekhar for R.R. Nagar Zone, Byrathi Basavaraj for Mahadevapura Zone, K. Gopalaiah for Bommanahalli Zone, and Munirathna for Yelahanka and Dasarahalli zones. Most of the Ministers have not been assigned to the zones where their respective Assembly constituencies fall.

Though when he announced the formation of these zonal task forces, the Chief Minister said these task forces will oversee all development works and crises management like in the time of rains, on Sunday he tweeted: “To tackle the rain-related problems I have constituted Zonal Task force in all the 8 zones of BBMP”, restricting the scope of these task forces to only deal with rain- related problems.

These task forces will have the zonal Joint Commissioners as their respective conveners and will have all MLAs, MLCs, and MPs, other zonal officials from all public utilities as members.
