By Our Special Correspondent

BANGALORE, JULY 10. The Common Minimum Programme (CMP) of the Congress-Janata Dal (Secular) coalition Government in the State is being given the finishing touches and will be announced on July 17, two days ahead of the maiden budget of the Government.

After a high-level meeting of the leaders of the two parties, the Chief Minister, N. Dharam Singh, and the Deputy Chief Minister, Siddaramiah, told presspersons here today that a six-member committee of senior leaders of both the parties had been constituted to draft the CMP. The inputs for the CMP were ready, and the committee would draft it in a few days. The members of the committee were the Ministers M.P. Prakash and P.G.R. Sindhia, the State unit Vice-President of the JD(S), C. Narayanaswamy, and the former Ministers H.K. Patil, Kagodu Thimmappa and B.K. Chandrashekar. Mr. Dharam Singh and Mr. Siddaramaiah said that the State Budget would be based on the CMP and budgetary allocations would be made to ensure that all programmes were implemented over a five-year period. The CMP would incorporate the salient features of the election manifestoes of both the Congress and the JD(S), they added.

While certain important programmes were decided at the first meeting of the two parties, a few additional features of the CMP were finalised today. They included programmes such as providing shelter for the homeless, setting up of 30 residential schools for minorities, backward classes, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, providing drinking water for all, upgrading the industrial training institutes, measures for the protection of the interests of workers in the unorganised sector, and a special package for weavers.
