CMC members dissatisfied over district administration's attitude

The Udupi CMC general body meet held here on Saturday expressed dissatisfaction over the district administration’s indifferent attitude towards it with respect to decision making in crucial matters.

Member Shyam Prasad Kudva alleged that the district administration is taking hasty decisions regarding the banning of vehicles on Car Street and installing gate at Halebailur road without informing CMC.

President Dinaker Shetty informed that the PWD had written letter to CMC in 2004 and assigned the rights of the Car Street. But the district administration does not seem concerned with that right, he alleged.  

The district administration’s  decision banning vehicles on the car street was supported in the meet held on January 19. Members urged that the resolution taken by the CMC should be made known to the public through newspapers.

Other issues

The other issues that were debated included, clearing the traffic mess within the city limits and introducing the parking zones, filling the vacant posts in the CMC, rampant use of street lights even after 11 pm and the out-sourcing of the newly built shops in city bus stop area.

CMC members also protested against SP’s decision to introduce signal lights in major junctions of the city.  They urged police department to take CMC into confidence before taking any decision over the issue. Commissioner Gokuldas Nayak promised that he has consulted SP over the concerned matter and that the latter has assured to take up further measures after holding talks with CMC. Vice President Indira Shekhar and others were present.
