Man stages lone protest against Cesc

Social activist K S Thirthappa staged a lone protest in front of the Deputy Commissioner’s office to oppose the “negligence” of Cesc officials in rectifying a defunct transformer at Bikkodu hobli in Belur taluk.

Thirthappa said that Kesagodu, Neelahalli, Malleshwaranagar, Holalu, Shingarevalli, Hedravalli and other villages under Bikkodu limits were badly affected. As the transformer is damaged, it has become difficult to operate borewells, rice mill and pumpsets, he said and added that students were also affected.

Though the issue was reported to the Energy Minister in the year 2016 and Cesc Executive Engineer and taluk Executive Engineer, no step has been taken in this regard. Thirthappa claims that a substandard transformer was installed.

If the local elected representatives, ministers and department officials fail to take adequate measures, people will stage a torchlight procession in the city and near the DC’s office, he warned.
