Committee to inspect 23 sites at Gaurikaluve

Decision taken at TMC general meeting

The meeting was held under the presidentship of H D Thammaiah. During the meeting the issue of Gaurikaluve extension was taken up and members sought explanation with regard to the next step in this direction.

Member Leela said that the people working in Town Municipal Council have managed to get about six sites in the extension using different names. She asked if it was not the lapse on the part of the council to allow such things to happen.

“There is a racket functioning behind this, which gets sites and sells it. There is a need to probe into the issue to expose the truth behind this. Evict the land encroached by rich people and provide title deeds to the lands on which poor have been dwelling,” she said.
Thammaiah said that action will be taken against those who do not have proper documents. He promised to expose the truth behind this and said that a four member inspection committee will be set up at the earliest.

Informing the house about the under ground drainage system being laid in the city at a cost of Rs 45 crore, officials said that Council must provide 36 acre land to build tank.
President said that 36 acre land has been identified at Hiremagalur railway line. All members’ meeting will be convened at the earliest and the land will be acquired by paying good price.

Sridhar Ural said that waste disposal is not being undertaken effectively in wards newly included to the Council for the past 15 days. 

Member Sridhar Ural raised objection to the fact that Rs 4 lakh has been provided to Nirmiti Kendra to continue the community hall works at Gavanahalli, despite the fact that the works already completed are of sub standard quality. He warned of a protest if the work is handed over to Nirmiti Kendra. However responding to the same, President said that the responsibility of supervision of the works undertaken by Nirmiti Kendra will be given to Town Municipal Council Engineer.

Speaking on swine flu, Devi Prasad said that authorities concerned must provide adequate information about the disease to the members.

Responding to the issue, president said that hand bills will be printed and distributed to provide information on the same.

Nominated member Lakshmikanth urged the President to take steps to control the pigs straying on the streets. President said that the people who are rearing pigs have been directed to shift the pigs out of town.
