Land acquired for the Hassan-Bangalore railway route

Speaking at a meeting held at the zilla panchayat hall to review the issues related to Hassan district that were discussed at a meeting presided over by the chief minister in Bangalore recently, he expressed unhappiness over the negligence of Cesc officials in delaying power connections to drinking water projects.

He also directed the officials of animal husbandry department to see to it that the cattle do not face any shortage of fodder. He suggested the tourism department officials to host Hoysalotsava on the lines of Mysore Dasara.

Deputy commissioner Dr K G Jagadish said, lands have been acquired for the Hassan-Bangalore railway route and around 90 per cent works were complete.

The deputy commissioner directed the assistant commissioner to survey 225 acres of land identified for the airport and submit a report in a week.

Forty-six villages have been selected for laying of Outer Ring Road. He asked the assistant commissioner to handover the lands identified in 11 villages to the public works department to begin works.

Hassan-Dudda road works would begin from Hassan side in December, he disclosed.

The departments which have achieved less than 80 per cent progress by the end of December would be considered nil, he stated. Hence, gram sabhas should be convened and beneficiaries selected so that it would be easy to achieve the goal as soon as the funds were released by the government, he added.

Superintendent of police Amit Singh, ZP chief executive officer S T Anjan Kumar and others were present at the meeting.
