After burying the hatchet with some ministerial colleagues who were upset over his style of functioning, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa on Tuesday began a four-day exercise to review the performance of ministers.
Yeddyurappa has scheduled interactive sessions with ministers and officials of their respective departments to discuss the progress achieved so far and to map out plans for the coming years.
Official sources said 10 ministers have been invited for discussions on the first day.
Yeddyurappa will hold a review meeting on Wednesday with Revenue Minister G Karunakara Reddy and his brother and Tourism minister Janardhana Reddy, who, along with some ministers and legislators, had expressed unhappiness over the Chief Minister's style of functioning.
On June 25 and 26, nine ministers each will participate in the review meeting.
Sources said the meetings being held ahead of the extended budget session of the state legislature, commencing from July 9, would also help gear up the ministers and their departments to face the session, as the opposition Congress and JDS are all set to attack the government.
In the backdrop of revenues dropping due to recession, the meetings would also discuss ways to mop up resources to fund programmes announced in the budget, the sources said.
Yeddyurappa will also hold a brain-storming session with top officials at a private resort on June 26 and 27 in a bid to tone up the administration. The chief minister three days ago had threatened Compulsory Retirement of non-performing officials.
