Villagers refute allegations by JD(S)

The villagers of Shirangala Mudlukoppal staged a protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office in the city claiming that illegal sand mining is not taking place in Shirangala village.

Their protest was in response to the protest staged by the JD(S) recently stating that illegal mining was rampant in the village. The villagers said the allegation made by JD(S) district unit president V P Shashidhar was baseless. The villagers submitted a memorandum to the deputy commissioner and said that sand mining on banks of river Cauvery at Shirangala is not affecting the villagers in anyway. 

The contractors are into sand mining legally by following the policies framed by the government. Shashidhar has made false allegations, they said.
