Liquor supply unchecked, MLA pulls up officials

Legislator N H Shivashanakara Reddy expressed his displeasure  over the inefficiency of the excise officials in curbing the supply of spurious liquor in the taluk.

With Government banning liquor in the taluk, the supply of spurious liquor has increased in the taluk. But officials have failed to check this. He directed the officials to take stringent action against those who are involved in this business in the rural parts of the taluk within a week and report to him in this respect.

Most of problems in the rural areas were solved through Janaspandana in the past eight months, he said and promised to take suitable measures to solve the remaining problems.
He added that the Deputy Commissioner was requested to grant permission to convert Vantibeedu land near Madanahalli into sites and allot the same for the shelterless in the City. He also promised to take action to disburse the sites as soon as the DC grants permission.

Town Municipal Council member K L Nagaswamy complained that parks in the City were encroached by the public and officials had failed to take action against them.

Responding to this complaint, the legislator directed the officials to take action to recover the encroached land and to install TMC sign boards on the parks.

Tahsildar Tippeswamy called upon the public to effectively utilise the government programmes. Zilla panchayat member Ravi Kumar spoke. Hundreds of applications were submitted seeking redressal to problems. Public Welfare Department officer Satyamurthy, Agriculture department officer Anuroop and other officials elaborated about the facilities granted by the government.

Taluk Panchayat president Jayamma, vice-president Prakash Reddy, TMC president Saraswati Nagesh, vice-president Kantaraj, Block Congress secretary Venkatramana, TP executive officer Gopalakrishna and many others were present.
