Shettar asks officials to have co-ordination

Leader of Opposition in Legislative Assembly Jagadish Shettar instructed the officials of different government agencies to have continuous co-ordination while implementing development works.

Replying to several grievances expressed by the citizens at the DH-PV 'Janaspandana' programme held here on Saturday, he also asked officials of different departments to attend programmes like 'Janaspandana' to understand the problems and to resolve them. He also explained how he tried to bring co-ordination between different departments by holding meetings of officials, and asked them to respond to public grievances immediately.

"While developing roads, people exert pressure to install road humps in front of their houses. Officials concerned should remove unscientific humps, while police should take action against those who obstruct this. People should also co-operate," he said.

Citizens should also co-operate for widening of roads, so that road can be developed as per the width mentioned in the CDP. I will hold another round of discussion with the officials regarding the width of the road from Kamaripet to Unkal Cross which is being developed under the CRF, he noted.

BRTS, water supply

People are blaming us because BRTS project implementation is delayed. I am monitoring it and I have given instructions to complete the works fast. I will also once again make efforts to construct a flyover at Bhairidevarakoppa, he said.

Due to BRTS works, water pipelines were damaged, and water is supplied to some areas once in 10 days. As Neerasagar tank has gone dry, water supply frequency has become once in seven days. To improve this, bulk water supply from Malaprabha reservoir has to be increased, and the State Government has to approve a Rs 24 crore proposal, Mr Shettar explained.

Other issues

As per government rules, the Excise Department has given permission for liquor shops at Shirur Park area, making it 'wine park', though I opposed. Police should take steps to prevent inconvenience for the people and vehicular movement in the area. he said.

We have planned for the development of market ground at Bengeri, which belongs to the Horticulture Department. If we oppose Indira canteen master kitchen there, we would get 'anti-poor' tag, he said.

Tata Marcopolo has already created thousands of jobs, while Infosys would also give jobs to software professionals here. If somebody comes forward to give land, it would be acquired at market rate, and a graveyard would be developed there for the convenience of people of Keshwapur and surrounding areas, he said, adding that steps are being taken to solve the crop insurance problem of farmers in Unkal area.

He also noted that 'Janaspandana' was helpful for citizens to get answer from officials and elected representatives for their queries.
