"These 100 days were like 'Agni Pareeksha'. Never ever has the state witnessed floods of this scale in the last 120years.

The Chief Minister emphasised that in the coming days the focus of the state would be to improve the lot of farmers, irrigation, housing, development of Bengaluru, industrial growth and tourism.

Bengaluru has been the focus area of his government, he said.

"I toured the city once. Our MLAs and ministers from Bengaluru are working day and night for the development of the city. Give us 100 more days and you will change its scenario.

I will demonstrate to you to your satisfaction," Yediyurappa said.

He said ban on liquor was not on his agenda.
