'Fill vacant posts in various departments'

A resolution to press for the filling of vacant posts in various government departments in Virajpet taluk, was passed in Virajpet Taluk Panchayat  meeting in Ponnampet on Tuesday.

In a meeting presided by TP President Vaterira Bopanna, member Tatu Monnappa said that  development activities have been affected due to shortage of staff in horticulture, agriculture, health, revenue and other departments. The problems should be brought to the notice of the government through the district in-charge minister.

All members supported the proposal  and a decision was taken to pass a resolution  and send it to the government.

TP Member Kolera Daya Changappa alleged that there was discrepancies in the distribution of BPL ration cards in the taluk. Several BPL card holders are not getting rice for the last three months as the ration cards have been cancelled, she said.

Member Tatu Monnappa said that while renewing the BPL cards, many people belonging to tribal community have been deprived of the facility.

Many of them have been informed to provide their epic card numbers while they do not have the epic cards. Also, some of them do not have a mobile phone, which is essential to send the messages towards renewal of cards, he said and urged the department of food  and civil supplies to take the issue seriously and solve the same.

He said that non eligible persons have been given BPL cards.  The Deputy Commissioner should conduct an inquiry and initiate stern action against the culprits, he said and urged the food and civil suppliesdepartment to make suitable arrangements for the registration, by opening an online centres in all hoblis.

The TP members  said that owing to illegal transportation of sand, sand is not available for the construction of Ashraya houses. Sand is  sold at high price and an artificial shortage has been created. The meeting decided to urge the PWD to set up a centre in each GP to distribute sand.

Members Daya Changappa alleged that the pepper vines distributed by the department of horticulture are of poor quality. As a result farmers are compelled to buy the vines from private nurseries at high rate.
