Volley of grievances at CM's constituency

While Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was busy giving finishing touches to the State budget on the eve of the Budget session on Thursday, here in Mysore, people at Varuna constituency represented by the Chief Minister in the Legislative Assembly rained their woes.

At the first-ever Janasamparka Sabhe organised by the office of IGP (Southern range) at Varuna on the outskirts, most of the villagers came out with grievances pertaining to the growing vehicular traffic on Mysore - T Narsipur road passing through Varuna village, unabated illegal sand mining, and increase in the sale of illegal liquor.

Shivanna of Pillalli demanded for installation of speed breakers on T Narsipur road to check the speed of vehicles, and metal crash barrier at Varuna lake to prevent recurring incidents of vehicles plunging into the waters. Shivanna said that buses plied on the stretch once every three minutes.

A member of Vajamangala gram panchayat Doddegowda exhorted the police to check illegal transportation of sand in lorries, which had led to heavy movement of vehicles during the nights.

Rachappa of T Narsipur accused the police of joining hands with illegal sand racketeers. As a result, serene environs of Gunja Narasimha Swamy temple at T Narsipur was gradually losing its sanctity, he said.

Shekar of Rangasamudra demanded the arrest of absconding members of Green Buds Agro Company who were at large after collecting a huge sum of money from over 30,000 agent depositors.

IGP (Southern range) K Ramachandra Rao promised to initiate action against those involved in illegal sand mining. He also asked the public to inform the police, if they come across such cases.

He said that the Janasamparka Sabhe would be held regularly.

SP Abhinav Khare cautioned people against investing in companies that offered to pay lucrative interest on the deposits.

He assured to take steps to lay speed breakers in the form of road humps and a joint drive with excise department to check the sale of illicit liquor.
