“I want officials to make a drastic change in the administration in the next six months,” Siddaramaiah said. What’s if they don’t care much of what he is saying? “…strict action will be taken against those bureaucrats,” CM added.
He also wondered how come several departments in the state have failed to utilise certificates to the Centre over utilisation of funds allotted through centrally sponsored schemes. In fact, not submitting the utilisation certificates means the departments can’t expect getting additional central grants.
