MLA bats for road through GKVK

The BBMP had shelved the project following vehement public protests. Vishwanath, MLA, said at the Council meeting that the road be built for the convenience of people living on the other side of the Agriculture Varsity.

"There is a need for this road. It provides an alternative route to the BIA too and offers an access to the main road," MLA said.

However, while Vishwanath made this appeal, there was none to debate on the subject. The Congress corporators had staged a walkout while the JD(S) members were in the well of the House protesting the garbage cess and betterment charges for revenue sites. The BJP leaders adopted an enigmatic silence.Mayor S K Nataraj said the Palike has not passed any resolution and the matter was yet to come up before the Council.
