The monthly Karnataka Development Progress (KDP) meeting of the zilla panchayat, which was convened on Monday, was postponed when most department officials did not turn up even half an hour past the schedule time of 11 a.m.

Of 51 departments, those of 20 were present. Members objected to this and pressured Basaraeddygouda Malipatil, ZP president, who called the meeting, to issue show cause notices to the absentees and take disciplinary action if they deliberately avoided the meeting.

The date of next KDP meeting would be announced.
