Harsh Gupta

The issue came up at a meeting held at the DC office here on Monday. The problems of the village came to fore, when the DC visited D B Kuppe, which lies on the H D Kote - Manandavady Road, recently.

Having interacted with the villagers, the DC said that the residents, who had left the forest had been denied of basic facilities.

It also come to light that even though 400 persons have applied for title deeds, the inspection carried out to grant them the deeds has been far from satisfactory.

He asked officials to submit a detailed report about the number of people who have applied for a title deed and the number of people to whom it has been granted. With the road being blocked from 6 pm to 6 am, the problems faced by the villagers has to be reviewed, he said. Also the grama panchayat has failed to take up any development programmes.

He said that D B Kuppe is facing a crisis for drinking water and also a shortage of electricity.
Even the existing lift irrigation project has failed in the village. Gupta demanded details of action taken by KPTCL to solve the electricity problems of the village.

Furthermore, he has demanded a reason from the education department for the lack of teachers in the village school. Additional Deputy Commissioner, Dr C J Betsurmutt, ATS Training Officer Priyanka Mary Francis, Assistant Commissioner Bharathi and Lingamurthy were present.
