Selection process transparent, says MLA Sudhakar

 Legislator Dr Sudhakar has denied any malfeasance in the selection of beneficiaries for Basava Vasathi and Indira Awas schemes.

Speaking to reporters after taking part in a meeting on the housing schemes here on Tuesday, Sudhakar said that Chikkaballapur Assembly constituency had been sanctioned 1,500 houses under Basava Vasathi scheme and 700 houses under Indira Awas scheme. A list of people without shelters is made at the gram sabhas and the whole process is videographed.

“The selection process is transparent and there is no coercion or influence in selection of beneficiaries. The list prepared by the Panchayat Development and the Gram Panchayat secretary is final and no changes would be made in it, he said.

The MLA said that barring the chief minister’s constituency, highest number of houses have been allotted under the schemes to Chikkaballapur Assembly constituency.

He said that houses
have been allotted to all the Gram Panchayats and it had come to his notice that Harobande Gram Panchayat had been left out and it would be given top priority in the next list.   

“There have been allegations that the list of beneficiaries for Doddapyalagurki
has been prepared by forging the signature of Gram Panchayat president Vijayalakshmi. I have directed the officials to lodged a complaint and the police have been told not to spare anyone. The signature will be examined at the Forensic Science Laboratory,” the MLA said.

Sudhakar said that there have been complaints about poor implementation of Basava Vasathi scheme in Angarekanahalli, Aruru, Kammaguttahalli, Ajjavara and Manchanabele Gram Panchayats. All these GPs have been directed to conduct Gram Sabhas once again for preparing the list of beneficiaries. 

Earlier, speaking at the meeting, the MLA said that more than 10,000 houses were yet to be allotted to rural areas in Chikkaballapur Assembly constituency and he would see that the houses are allotted in a phased manner.

Zilla Panchayat president P N Munegowda said that there could have been no problem with the beneficiaries list if it was prepared by following a suitable
yardstick.
