CM BommaiMangaluru :  After the ban on bouquet, fruit-basket at government events, Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai said that there will be no guard of honour by the police, during the CM’s visits to districts in the future.

Bommai, who was in Mangaluru to chair a review meeting on the Covid-19 situation on Thursday, said that the police need not offer a guard of honour whenever the CM visits.

“The police offering guard of honour in public places like airports and other places should be stopped completely. They need not offer it every time the CM visits. They may offer it only during ceremonies related to the police department. I have taken a decision in this regard, and will issue an order soon after I reach Bengaluru,” he said.

The CM also urged his party workers and well-wishers not to put up hoardings for leaders. “I am not just a chief minister, but a servant of the people,” he told the media on the sidelines of his review meeting.

Referring to the vaccination drives in the state, he said that he will issue an order asking all medium and large industries, the banking sector and institutions to commence vaccination for their staff. “I will hold a meeting of all stakeholders soon, making them responsible to vaccinate their staff. This will reduce the burden on the government, and help poor to get their doses. We can divert the vaccine doses to public health centres,” he said, adding that an order in this regard will be issued soon.
