Will turn it into a model constituency, says MLA

 MLA K Gopalaiah and Deputy Mayor Hemalatha Gopalaiah assured the residents that they would turn the Mahalakshmi Layout Assembly constituency into a model constituency.

Speaking to Deccan Herald after attending the “Citizens for Change” programme, Hemalatha said at least Rs 50 crore had been set aside by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike for the development of the constituency. Out of this, Rs 23.5 crore had been sanctioned for the completion of the various projects which were being implemented in the seven wards of the constituency.

“There are 53 parks in the constituency and 23 would be upgraded soon. We have also begun installing LED bulbs in parks. Complaints that were aired in today’s meeting will be addressed at the earliest,” she added.

MLA Gopalaiah said projects like starting a BBMP maternity home in ward 74, establishing an anganwadi centre, an e-library and a dialysis centre, were in the pipeline. In order to ease traffic congestion in the constituency, work on the flyover between Bovipalya and Ring Road would be speeded up, he added.

Meanwhile, the residents urged the elected representatives to take measures to minimize the stench emanating from the solid waste management unit near the Nandini theatre. The garbage trucks are also parked near the unit, making the stench unbearable. There are two schools in the vicinity and the children would be affected, they added.
