Acknowledging the emergence of a new COVID variant, Siddaramaiah informed that the Health Minister would convene a meeting for precautionary measures.
In response to a case of assault on women in Belagavi, Siddaramaiah expressed confidence in the police’s capability to investigate. He stated the government’s willingness to hand over the case to any organisation, ensuring a fair investigation and punishment for the guilty.
Siddaramaiah also addressed interest waivers on loan principals, indicating that the higher education and primary education departments are formulating a formula to address the issue
