He spoke during the Hyderabad-Karnataka liberation day programme held at DAR grounds in Kalaburagi. He said the decision was taken to benefit the common man in the state.
Kumaraswamy arrived at the Kalaburagi airport in a special flight to participate in the Hyderabad-Karnataka liberation day function.
Due to heavy rain at the airport, the CM directly headed to the city nearly 12 km away, by skipping the guard of honour that was arranged to welcome him.
He was received at the airport by Kalaburagi district in-charge Minister Priyank Kharge. This is Kumaraswamy’s first visit to Kalaburagi as chief minister of the coalition government.
Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, will first garland the statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel at SVP Circle in the city. He will then participate in the liberation day programme at District Armed Reserve (DAR) grounds.
Later, the CM is scheduled to hold a meeting with officials and receive petitions from people.
In the afternoon, he will visit the Dattatreya temple in Devala Ganagapur, in Afzalpur taluk, before heading back to Bengaluru in the same special flight he arrived in.
