Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa has appointed new district in charge ministers, who will work towards checking the spread of COVID-19 and implementation of relief measures.

According to the government order issued on Thursday, April 10 Yediyurappa will be in charge of Bengaluru urban district whereas his Deputy Chief Ministers Dr C N Ashwath Narayan, Laxman Savadi and Govind Karjol will be in charge of Ramanagara, Raichur and Bagalkote.

In all, 25 ministers including the Chief Minister have been assigned one district each.

However, the ministers who have been excluded from district level responsibilities are Ramesh Jarkiholi, Shrimant Patil and K Gopalaiah.

According to sources in BJP, the district responsibilities were revamped following reports that many ministers did not visit their respective districts to oversee the COVID-19 related relief work despite the increasing number of cases in the state.

The Chief Minister had to confront questions on the issue during a recent media interaction, where he had promised to strengthen the relief work monitoring system at the ministerial level.
