MCC will give Rs 55 lac for KRH dialysis unit

The civic body arrived at the consensus without giving room for much debate, taking into note the travails faced by the people, mostly from rural parts who knock on the doors of the good old hospital for this particular facility.

Moreover, as it was the end of the financial year, the council thought it appropriate to give its consent rather than stretching the same.

However, senior Corporator H N Srikantaiah was miffed at the delay on the part of the officers concerned in the corporation for unwanted delay in releasing the money for a noble work.

He strongly urged the Mayor Sandesh Swamy to hold such officers accountable.

Following this, Superintending Engineer of MCC, Mahesh replied that the tenders had been invited to purchase the needy materials, long ago on August 27, 2010.

As the corporation lacked experts, a five member panel had been formed to submit the report pertaining to the facilities. However, there was a delay of two months to submit the report, the actual reasons that stymied the process.

It was only after all these stages, the approval was taken from the authorities concerned.

On the earlier decided insurance cover for BPL families and those whose annual income is below  ` 17,000, the council vested the powers to decide on the list of beneficiaries to the corporators, rather than the officers only.  As Mayoral polls is scheduled for April, it was also the last council meeting of the incumbent mayor.  Corporators cutting across party lines felicitated Mayor  on the occasion.
