DC unhappy over preparation for Tula Sankramana

Teerthodbhava to take place at Talacauvery at 4.35 pm on October 17

Speaking in the preparatory meeting on Wednesday, he expressed unhappiness over the works undertaken by the several departments.

There has been no progress in the work undertaken by some of the departments. If the sub-committees undertake the work in the same pace, it will be difficult to manage.
As the ‘punarprathishta’ committees have been dissolved, the work pressure on the district administration and officials has increased. Officials must  take up the responsibility on their own interest. There must be progress in the work undertaken by various departments in the next preparatory meeting scheduled to be held on October 13, he said.

Superintendent of Police Manjunath Annigeri said, “There is no problem of law and order in Kodagu. As a result, we will give priority to control stampede, and theft cases during the Tula Sankramana.” Apart from KSRP platoons, no additional forces from outside the district will be deployed. DySPs, Circle Inspectors, Sub-Inspectors including 750 police personnel who are working in the district will be deployed for security purpose. About 90 per cent of the police personnel from every station will be deployed. The help of Home Guards will also be taken, he added.


He said those who possess vehicle pass will be allowed to park their vehicles near the temple at Talacauvery. Other vehicles will have to park 150 metres away from the temple premises. Those who possess the pass will be allowed to leave for Talacauvery in vehicle. If the parking place is full in Talacauvery, then vehicles will be parked at Bhagamandala, he clarified.

PWD officials were directed to fill the potholes on the road leading to Bhagamandala-Talacauvery. The work will be commenced from Thursday, said PWD Executive Engineer.
Chescom was urged to supply uninterrupted power supply on Tula Sankramana. Bhagamandala GP Secretary was urged to ban the use of plastic in Bhagamandala. Even shops will be directed not to use plastics.

Chescom engineer appealed to the Deputy Commissioner to earmark one to two acres              government land for the setting up of sub station in Bhagamandala.
Bhagamandala GP Secretary said 20 acres of land has been earmarked for the development of tourism in Padakal. Of which, some land can be given to Chescom. Tahisldar was asked to inspect the land and give a report.

Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer Mirza Akbarulla said the Zilla Panchayat will give priority to health and drinking      water.
Additional Deputy Commissioner Chandre Gowda and others were present.
