Bangalore, June 19 (UNI) The Karnataka Government has decided to computerise all the Zilla Panchayath offices with Internet facilities for better coordination with the state government, minister for Panchayat Raj, Shobha Karandlaje said today.
Addressing a conference of the Presidents and Vice-presidents of all the 29 districts, she urged them to sink their political differences and work for the development of rural areas.
