Stopping water supply for non payment rocks CMC meet

The issue was raised by BJP Member M R Pai who flayed Congress members for staging a protest couple of weeks ago in front of CMC against the CMC’s decision of disconnecting the water supply for those who do not pay Rs 30 collection charges for the wastages.

MLA Raghuapathy Bhat said it is nowhere mentioned in the Act that depriving the basic amenities as penalty who fail to pay the fee charged by the local government is illegal.

There is no alternative way to collect the fee, he said and urged CMC to keep Janatha colonies out of this penalty system. It should be strictly applied for upper middle class and rich people, as most of the times these people who fail to pay the dues, he added. Commissioner Gokuldas said there is no evil intension behind taking action, he said.

Member Kiran Kumar demanded a stringent action against those who litter along the road sides. Commissioner assured to take actions against those who violate the norms and throw their wastes on either side of the road, he added.

Members also urged the authorities concerned to provide bus facilities for the job holders from Ajjarkadu and Brahmagiri junction who catch buses to Brahmavar and Kundapur. The problem has been aroused as the buses of the route are taking their diversion from Karavali junction. Earlier, these buses would go en route Ajjarkadu and Brahmagiri. Bhat assured to consider the matter. The present traffic changes were made to minimise the traffic hassles in K M Marg, he said. President Dinaker Shetty, Vice President Indira Shekar and others were present.
