Additionally, Raghavendra mentioned the Bhagyalakshmi Yojana, a scheme initiated by former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, which will celebrate its 18th anniversary on January 24. The scheme provides financial assistance to impoverished girls who have turned 18. Raghavendra expressed pride in his father's role in creating this plan. Furthermore, he announced upcoming flights from Shimoga Airport to Tirupati, Hyderabad, and other major cities.

However, some attendees responded with laughter when Raghavendra mentioned launching flights from Shimoga to Goa.
