Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that maize procurement centres would be opened all over the State and would be functional from December 22.

Mr. Siddaramaiah, who was returning to Bengaluru after attending a function in Vijayapura, was responding to questions by presspersons during a brief technical halt at a private airport, near here, on Saturday.

With regard to opening paddy procurement centres, a decision would be taken soon in consultation with the Cabinet sub-committee, he said.
