Cong opposes transfer of Mayo Hall to PWD

At a press conference here, leader of the Opposition in the BBMP Council Nagaraj said Mayo Hall was historically connected with the Palike and its first meeting was held there.

Nagaraj said the general secretary of Kempe Gowda Smaraka Prathisthana, R Thimme Gowda had also sought conversion of Mayo Hall into a museum in memory of Kempe Gowda, the City’s founding father. A proposal to appoint a curator was sent to the chief minister in 2005. The museum was to be opened in January 2011, and various antique materials had been collected, but a proposal by the PWD to start its office there has doomed the museum plan, he said.

Circulars have been issued by BBMP Commissioner, Siddaiah, and the Joint Commissioners of all eight zones on ensuring that all Palike staff arrive on time at their offices. But the latecomers, it seems, couldn’t care less.

The BBMP Standing Committee on Personnel and Administrative Reforms found that there was just 42 percent attendance at 10.15 am on Monday at the Mahadevapura zonal office.
Further, it noted that most employees had not even signed the attendance register till December 25.The Committee members found that the Group ‘D’ employees had also flouted the mandatory rule that they should wear uniforms at work.
