Demolition drive: CM reassures BDA allottees

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has assured the BDA site allottees that he would speak to the BDA officials about the eviction notice served to them.

Speaking to residents after a close door meeting at his residence on Kumara Krupa Road, he said, “I will talk to BDA officials regarding this.”

Tuesday evening saw over 50 residents of Banaswadi standing in front of the chief minister’s residence. The BDA site allottees had gathered there to submit a memorandum requesting him to take back the notice and not demolish the structures constructed on BDA sites.

Shyam Sundar, a resident who met Siddaramaiah, said, “All we need is an assurance from the chief minister that the houses constructed on BDA sites will not be demolished by the authorities.”

Sundar explained that in the 220 sites that were developed, houses have been built on 120 sites. “There are so many people living in the place for over 20 to 25 years now. Where are we all supposed to go?” he grieved.
