This time, it was the turn of Union Home Minister P Chidambaram.
A fortnight after Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa snubbed Chidambaram by cancelling their meeting at the last minute, the home minister gave it back to him.
Chidambaram visited Bangalore on Friday, reviewed an army commando unit he had given the state and promised a 600-strong specialised Special Forces Battalion for the state by the month-end.
But he did not meet the CM, who had preferred to tour his constituency than meet the home minister on March 7 for a security review. Instead, he issued a statement telling the people of Karnataka that the Centre had kept its word and located a specialised counter-terrorist force in the state capital.
