Elected reps take Cesc officials to task

Elected representatives took Chamundeshwari Electrical Supply Corporation (Cesc) officials to task at the quarterly review meeting at zilla panchayat here recently.

Raising the issue, MLA C S Puttaraju said Cesc has imposed penalty on grama panchayats for drinking water schemes. He reminded them that former district in-charge minister had said that no penalty should be imposed on drinking water schemes. He demanded that Cesc withdraw the penalty.

MLA A B Ramesh Babu said Cesc officials were not replacing the burnt transformers in his constituency. He said Srirangapatna should be made into a separate division for executing the projects. City municipal council president M P Arunkumar said Rs six lakh has been spent on relocating the electricity poles. But, the work hasn’t been completed. 

District in-charge minister C P Yogeeshwara said a separate meeting would be held next week on issues related to electricity. KPTCL manager would also participate in the meeting.
MLAs M Srinivas, B Ramakrishna, MUDA president Basavegowda, zilla panchayat president M T Suresh, vice-president Lalitha Prakash, deputy commissioner B N Krishnaiah, zilla panchayat CEO P C Jayanna, SP Koushalendra Kumar and others were present.
