Citizens air grievances


We are 850 people in the village panchayat and we do not have a single burial ground. It has become very difficult. Please take proper measures.

— Krishnappa Pura

There is a dearth of burial grounds in 45 villages of the taluk. While the land is available in 25 villages, it is not available in 20 others. Only if the farmers sell their land, can we build (the burial ground).

— Karigowda, senior official from Devanahalli 

A health centre is required in the town. Now, we have to travel more than 2 km to the existing hospital and end up spending close to Rs 50. There is some land available near the library situated behind the Ambedkar Bhavan. You can use it.

— Bhairappa from Prashant Nagar 

We were also considering the same. We will write a letter to the district health officer to open a primary health centre.

Though Devanahalli has received international acclaim, there is no space for senior citizens to walk in the parks. Well maintained parks are helpful for residents here.

— P Venugopal, a resident 

We have identified 1.20 acres near Garerakumar Layout. We will undertake the work immediately.

I have dug a borewell under the Gangakalyana scheme. I have dug 1,090 ft, but they have billed it for 1,160 ft, and they are not providing details for this. I am tired going about government offices and they demand money to move files. The MLA has to look into the issue.

— Haraluru Narasimhaiah 

Even I have been asking officials to provide me the details as to how many borewells have been dug, how many residents are using a pumpset to draw water and how many are remaining, and how much funds does the government have and how much of it has been spent. But the officials are yet to give me the details. I will have an elaborate meeting with them and resolve this.
