Villagers stage protest

The protest was organised under the leadership of Grama Hitharakshana Vedike convenor Shrikanth and Zilla Panchayat member H S Ashok.

Villagers complained that several houses in low-lying areas in the village are on verge of collapse due to the gushing of water from the channel.

Srikanth demanded that officials including AEE Kalegowda should visit village and provide rehabilitation facilities to those villagers who are facing the problem.

Ashok alleged that the officials, who are negligent towards villagers’ problems, do not visit villages.

The protest will be intensified if offiials do not take necessary measures to solve villagers’ problems, he warned.

Responding to villagers’ demand, AEE Kalegowda told villagers that a villagers’ meeting in connection with the issue will be organised by the senior officials at Kushalnagar on July 3. He assured villagers that their problems will be solved in the meeting. 

Leaders Bhojaraja, S K Devaraju, Thammanna, Ramesha and Govindappa participated in the protest.
