TP approves action plan of Rs 1.23 crore

The approval was given during the TP’s general meeting chaired by TP President Nalini Ganesh recently.

The Panchayat decided to allot Rs 28 lakh for the welfare of the members of Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs).

The rest of the amount will be used for drainage system, drinking water supply, cleanliness and the like.

Town Panchayat Chief Officer M H Sudhakar Bhat said the action plan intends to provide more facilities to the economically backward people and slum dwellers.
“In many colonies, people are already experiencing shortage of drinking water. The pipes laid here are very old. On the other hand, the project of supplying drinking water from Harangi to the town is at snail’s pace. Hence, it is inevitable to give priority to drinking water supply,” said members Dakshayini and Geetha.

Another member N S Murthy expressed his disappointment that necessary steps have not been taken to solve drinking water woes in the town, even though the Town Panchayat has been receiving good grant from the government.
Member Fayaz suggested that the grant under 12th Finance Plan could be used for improving the solid waste management system in the town.

Reacting to this, the TP President said the location at Siddalingapura meant for solid waste management has been approved by the Deputy Commissioner.
The Chief Officer informed the meeting that the project of constructing more toilets in the town under Nirmala Nagara scheme is on the cards.
Vice President Vijayalakshmi Suresh was present on the occasion.
