Tug of war continues on shifting bus stand

 Sharing these details in a press conference held here on Tuesday, Prakash said CMC had given this land to KSRTC, with clauses on how the land is to be utilised, free of cost. In that document, there is a clear condition that one should not ‘sell or trade this land under any circumstances. So, building shops in the premises of the bus stand will amount to commercial use of the place, and this amounts to violation of the basic agreement, he said.
“If they have to build the shops, let them make neccessary amendment to local bodies act and go ahead with their plans,” he said.

“We will inform our concerns in writing to the Deputy Commissioner. Along with that, we will also insist that a meeting with general public be convened pertaining to the utilisation of the space of bus stand. We will also move local courts, if need be,” he said.  

The Government should use the space only to create facilities that are of public use. Before demolishing the building, the authorities should also show the blue print of the building that is planned in the place and take our permission. If this is not done, we will not issue permit from CMC under any circumstances, said C R Shankar, President of Hassan CMC. ZP President B D Chandregowda was also present at the press meet.
