Expectations soar high for better city

Councillors yet to chalk out plan, even 2 months after election

Expectations soar high for better city

Finally, elections to the local body and Assembly constituency have been over and people, now hope that with a new government and administration, the district would witness progress.

In the City Municipal Council, JD(S) has 10 seats while Congress has nine and Independents are 11 and the people have voted for the Congress legislator over a JD(S) contestant.

The district is lagging behind in many ways and the people expect that the new administration may bring a wave of change.

“It has been two months since the new councillors were elected but they are yet to take the oath.

“As the poll code (for the Assembly elections) was in place, the councillors could not do any work, officially. But they have not even made any plans for the overall development of the city. They must draft a plan that could take the city on a progressive path,” K Ramesh Raju, a resident, told Deccan Herald. 

Majority of the roads in Kelagina Thota Layout, Prashanth Nagar and Vapasandra are worn out. On many occasions, two-wheelers have suffered injuries. Besides, in many layouts, drinking water is supplied once in a week. People living on BB Road, MG Road and Bazar Road have been complaining of dust but nothing has been done to check this, he observed.

He further said that a building on the premises of an old bus stand in the city has been demolished but the debris is yet to be cleared.

“The building was demolished before the code of conduct came into place. CMC and district administration officials had promised to construct the building but nothing has been done,” he added.
