BANGALORE: Despite the government ban on foreign tours by bureaucrats and netas, a group of IAS officers and an adviser to the CM have left for San Francisco and Taiwan.

Economic adviser to CM, KV Raju, infrastructure development principal secretary Rajkumar Khatri, finance principal secretary LV Nagarajan, e-governance principal secretary MN Vidyashankar and Shashidhar from Udyog Mitra left on Sunday for a eight-day tour in connection with the Global Investors' Meet II.

In view of drought, the CM directed officials and politicians not to go on tours for two months. On Saturday, additional chief secretary K Jairaj issued a ban order on foreign tours for the said period. When TOI contacted Jairaj, he said he didn't have details of their tour. "I don't know when they left.''

Social welfare minister A Narayanaswamy, meanwhile, has left on a personal tour of the US with his family.

Editors footnote
These days many bureaucrats from Karnataka are heading to bangkok.Last year some  cheapsters from Irrigation department had a gala time in Bangkok at the expense of Government. Today communication has improved so much that we can have video conferences sitting in the comfort our offices. We can get study reports,visuals everything from abroad right on table yet these idiots keep going abroad an the pretext of study tours,discussions etc etc.
