KPCC to assess rain damages in C'magalur from July 25


Addressing a press conference, he said the delegation would include former Speaker Ramesh Kumar, leaders Govind Raju and Jayaprakash Hegde.

He said vigilance panels will be formed at district and taluk-levels to prevent intervention in the development programmes being implemented by various departments. “Contracts of the PWD projects are being given to the contractors of the officials’ choice by neglecting seniority. The rules have been neglected while assigning contracts in the Gram Sadak Yojna,” he alleged.

He also charged that there was misappropriation in Kote Kere project. “The officials have left the evacuation of the tank owing to pressure. The works are not being done properly because of political intervention. The corruption will soon be made public,” he warned.

Petition will be filed against the officials after retrieving information from the Minor Irrigation Department, Murthy informed.

District-in-Charge Minister K S Eshwarappa paid a namesake visit to Uggehalli in Mudigere taluk. His actions show that he has no interest in the development of the district, he criticised.

Though there have been more destruction in Koppa, Sringeri and Mudigere taluks in the rain-related mishaps, the district-in-charge minister could not visit those places. Being Minister for Energy, Eshwarappa has failed to provide proper power supply to the district.

People in Melina Huluvatti are spending days in dark for the past one month as many electric poles have fallen. Even the officials have not taken any steps, the DCC chief alleged.

The district has incurred a loss of Rs 50 crore due to floods. The minister is indifferent towards the problems, he added.

DCC former president K B Mallikarjuna, General Secretary K Mohammed, Dr D L Vijaykumar, spokesperson A N Mahesh, city unit president Sridhara Urala, CDA former president Lokesh and minority wing’s Aslam were present at the press meet.
