Bengaluru: Intensifying his image building exercise following the shock
defeat of all Janata Dal (Secular) candidates except one in the recent Lok
Sabha elections, Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy has taken up a series of
public relations (PR) activities, besides announcing his Gram Vastavya
visits, scheduled to begin on June 21.

On Monday, Mr Kumaraswamy announced that his Gram Vastavya to 'reconnect'
with the people at the grassroots, would begin from Gurumitkal in
Kalaburagi district which is part of Hyderabad-Karnataka region.

Besides, he held a round of meetings with Deputy Chief Minister Dr G.
Parameshwar and discussed the rain damage in Bengaluru city.

Earlier in the day, Mr Kumaraswamy gave an audience to Mayakka from Gokak
in Belagavi district, who is physically challenged by birth and a mother of
two.  He sanctioned Rs 50,000 financial assistance to her and promised to
help her in getting her children educated besides directing the Belagavi
district administration to get Mayakka a BPL card. Meanwhile, Mr
Kumaraswamy has invited all 37 Janata Dal (Secular) MLAs and MLCs to his JP
Nagar residence on Tuesday evening for dinner.

During the last one year, his party colleagues had complained about lack of
access to the Chief Minister and at Tuesday’s meeting, Mr Kumaraswamy is
planning to reassure them that the government is stable and henceforth,
governance would be smooth. Before he starts his Gram Vastavya programme,
Mr Kumaraswamy is also planning to reach out to all MLAs of the coalition
partner Congress.
