CMC Chief angry over delay in water project

Madikeri, Nov 19, 2012, DHNS:

‘Complete Kundamestri water project in 2 months’

Madikeri CMC President H M Nandakumar has warned that legal action will be initiated against officials, if they fail to complete work on Kundamestri drinking water project in two months.

Speaking at the monthly meeting here on Monday, he pointed out the officials had been told to furnish the work details every month. However, the officials have chosen to ignore the directive.

Karnataka Water Supply and Sewage Board Assistant Engineer Srikanth said that the work was delayed because of some reasons and will be completed at the earliest. The President then emphasised that summer is just a few months away and if the work is not completed within the time frame, then the officials will have to bear the expenses for supplying water through tankers.

Water purifying unit

CMC member T M Ayyappa said that the proposed site for setting up of water purifying unit, at Golf ground should be shifted.

Replying to that Srikanth said that the 12-acre land would be required for setting up a hi-tech sewage treatment plant. At present, only five acres are available for the purpose.

Waste disposal

Sthree Shakthi Sangha members have been directed to collect waste from the houses. However, they are collecting fee, alleged members Chummi Devaiah and Muneer Ahmed.
Intervening, CMC Commissioner Shashikumar said that there was no need to pay the fee when the members collect the waste.

Hi-tech market

The Commissioner said that Rs 3 crore has been earmarked for the construction of hi-tech market in Madikeri.

Members Muneer Ahmed and Ponnappa alleged that Rajaseat Maintenance Committee has become inactive. In spite of collecting entrance fee, there are no basic facilities. Responding to it, the Commissioner said that there is a need to re-constitute the committee. Horticulture department officer Deena said that Rs 37 lakh has been collected as entrance fee and the money has been deposited in the bank account.
