Sewage water in lakes: KSPCB slaps notice on MCC

Project estimated at ` five cr to delink existing lines hangs in balance

This was informed to the media here on Thursday by outgoing Mayor Sandesh Swamy.
“Taking cognisance of the issue much before only, the local body had prepared a project estimated ` five crore to delink the existing sewage lines, but to no avail as the corporation awaits clearance”, bemoaned mayor.

The work has been undertaken under CM’s special grant of  `100 crore in second phase, that is still far from a reality, alleged mayor wondering what has blocked the release of the grant.

Of the grant announced in first phase only ` 70 crore was released and various works were taken up.

When the issue was brought to the notice of Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa during the recent progress review meeting of the district presided over by him (CM), he instructed Medical Education and District In-charge Minister S A Ramdas to look into the same.

It’s already over a week for the meeting, the minister is yet to take stock of the matter, alleged mayor holding the district-in-charge minister responsible for the inordinate delay, on the matter.
