Bengaluru, Feb 21 (IANS) Karnataka will establish a separate secretariat for non-resident Indians (NRIs) in line with the ones set up by the Kerala government, Home Minister G. Parameshwara announced on Wednesday.

He made the announcement after welcoming NRIs from more than 15 countries seated at the visitors’ gallery of the state Assembly.

Addressing the NRIs, Health Minister Dinesh Gundu Rao said that a large number of people from the Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts have settled in foreign countries. “They have not forgotten their culture… The relationship with them should be strengthened.
