CM on a writing spree

In a letter addressed to the Prime Minister, Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa cited the state’s disappointment over non-sanctioning of an Indian Institute of Technology to the state.In the letter, Yeddyurappa spoke of Bangalore’s growing repute as an research and development destination owing to the fact that it has more than 100 global information technology companies located.Thus, the need for an IIT, Yeddyurappa stated.Establishing an IIT here (Karnataka) will surely be a boost to the work that has already been going on here, he added.Karnataka has also taken many initiatives to improve in the science and technology and knowledge area by constituting a Knowledge Commission under the chairmanship of former ISRO chairman Dr Kasturirangan and a Vision Group for Science and Technology under the chairmanship of Prof C N R Rao, he pointed out.
