Finally the district administration has woken up to the need of toilet facilities near Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s house at T K Layout in the city, and has begun construction works on the same.

This follows the ruckus created by a family in the neighbourhood two months ago, who had accosted the Chief Minister, to register their complaint about his supporters and other people (coming to visit his residence during janata darshan), relieving themselves in the nearby vacant sites.

Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) is building a toilet complex at a vacant plot on Chaduranga road near the Chief Minister’s house. The work taken up at an estimated cost of Rs 4.3 lakh was launched on June 10, and is now nearing completion.

It includes five toilets for men,  including two urinals, and one each toilet and urinal for women. What remains is the electricity and water connections, according to MUDA engineer Jagadish.

The engineer said, there was also a demand for toilet from the regular strollers. The demand became stronger, following the visit of more number of people during chief minister’s janata darshan. The Mysore City Corporation (MCC) will be tasked with its maintenance.

On April 15, ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Jayamma an elderly woman had lodged a complaint at Saraswatipuram police station against Kumar the personal assistant to Siddaramaiah.

Kumar and his supporters had allegedly manhandled Jayamma and her son Govindegowda. The mother and son duo had allegedly pelted stones at Kumar and his men, after they were found urinating in front of their houses, triggering unrest for sometime.
