First year anniversary!
It was this day, a year back, when the first full fledged BJP government took the reigns in Karnataka and proved a gateway for BJP in South India. An unprecedented gathering of BJP Karyakarthas, well wishers, supporters thronged the venue. It was an ocean of those enthusiastic faces with the tears of delight and fulfillment in their eyes. When I took oath in the presence of this sea of humanity, I could clearly make out the entirety of responsibility put on my shoulders.
It has been a year of learning, a year of knowing the problems, a year of understanding the bureaucracy, and a year of sincere efforts to find solutions.
An eventful year this has been, where my colleagues in the Party, my friends, more especially my family and my officers stood with me to make my endeavor joyful and contented! I feel happy for having been successful in not letting the intoxication of power reach my head!
This day of anniversary, I rededicate myself to march forward on the path of serving the people and the State through the responsibilities assigned to me!
