He claimed no other state had ever carried outrelief work of this scale as officers, Ministers and MLAs worked beyond their limit to provide relief to theflood-affected.

The Chief Minister emphasised that in the coming days the focus of the state would be to improve the lot of farmers, irrigation, housing, development of Bengaluru, industrial growth and tourism. Bengaluru has been the focus area of his government, he said.

"I toured the city once. Our MLAs and ministers from Bengaluru are working day and night for the development of the city. Give us 100 more days and you will change its scenario. I will demonstrate to you to your satisfaction," Yediyurappa said.

He said ban on liquor was not on his agenda. Speaking about the some of the achievements, the ChiefMinister said from July 26, 2019 till date, treatment hasbeen approved for 1.29 lakh beneficiaries under the AyushmanBharat-Arogya Karnataka scheme, for which Rs 177.
