Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy took a surprising decision of not allowing cellphones during the official meetings of his government. He strictly banned all the government officials from carrying their cellphones into the meetings.
This rule came into light after the Chief Minister called out for the awareness of the several harms that a cellphone causes. He quoted that people are becoming increasingly dependent on cellphone and are using them at all times like eating and before sleeping and this will cause several health adversaries.
He also banned teachers from using their cellphones in working hours. Sources have confirmed that this decision was taken keeping the wellbeing of the working people in mind. Not just the working people, when a high official takes a decision like this it sends a strong message to everyone.
