Demand to supersede CMC

Crores of rupees works have been taken up without the permission of the administration. As a result the tax payers money is being misused, he alleged.

A detailed letter has been written in this regard addressed to the deputy commissioner and municipal administrator. Also 22 members of the CMC have passed a no confidence motion against the president, he said.

The president and the municipal commissioner have sanctioned various development works without calling for a general body or special meeting, alleged the members themselves.
As the members themselves have accepted irregularities, the CMC should be rid of corrupt administration, he urged.

In the investigation carried out by municipal administration directorate officials S B Shivarudrappa and his team in September 2008, it was reported that the several rules were broken and the CMC had spent nearly Rs 1.39 crore. There is no sanction for this in the budget.

The report has directly indicted then municipal administrator Kempahanumaiah, deputy commissioner Arundathi Chandrashekar, commissioner Tippesh and assistant executive engineer Chandrashekar.

According to the audit report Rs 13.39 lakh has been spent without action plan and taking sanction in the budget, it is said.
There are also irregularities in the purchase of pump sets, alleged Srinivas. Hence, the CMC has to be superseded and the administrative board should be suspended, he demanded.
