Chikkaballapur town to get a park

The Land Army, which has been entrusted with the responsibility of building the park, has expressed its confidence that it will be ready within one month’s time.

Speaking on the occasion, District incharge and Wakf and Minorities Welfare Minister Dr Mumtaz Ali Khan called upon the officers to extend their co-operation for the speedy completion of the development works in the town.

“The officers should take measures to ensure that the works are done in time,” the minister said.

Alternative arrangements

Dr Mumtaz Ali Khan asked the officers to remove the petty shops from the park vicinity so as to make it attractive.

He also directed the officials to make alternative arrangements to help the petty shop owners to continue with their business, elsewhere, so that their lives were not disturbed.

The Deputy Commissioner, Anwar Pasha said that the ambitious Chennaiah Park construction will be completed in two phases.

In the first phase, a fence will be constructed at a cost of Rs 40 lakh. And in the second phase, the actual work for the park will begin. A fountain and a walking path will also be built along with planting of the saplings, he added.

Officer of the Land Army D Chandra Mohan, Chief Executive Officer of the Zilla Panchayat N Krishnappa, Sub Divisional Officer G V Seenappa, nominated member Chikkaramaiah and other important persons were present on the occasion.


The MLA, K P Bachegowda, Town Municipal Council President and members were conspicuous by their absence at the foundation laying function.

It is alleged that the district incharge minister and the deputy commissioner had organised the function in a hurry. Union Minister M Veerappa Moily was expected to lay the foundation stone for the Chennaiah Park.
