Memorandum submitted to Yeddyurappa
‘Speed up process of shifting offices'
Madikeri: T. John, MLC, has urged Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa to release Rs. 100 crore soon to take up road and drinking water projects in the district.
In a memorandum issued here on Tuesday, he said that Mr. Yeddyurappa, who was here to lay the foundation stone for the postgraduate centre of the Mangalore University at Chikkaluvara village recently, had stated that he was ready to release Rs. 500 crore if a list of projects to be implemented in Kodagu was submitted to him. Responding to this, he had submitted a list of 17 roadworks, among others, to be taken up immediately in the district.
He said the roads that were in bad condition were Madikeri-Virajpet-Gonicoppa-Kutta, Kushalnagar-Hebbale-Shirangala Hebbale-Somwarpet, Madikeri-Somwarpet-Shanivarasante-Kodlipet, Sunticoppa-Madapur, Kushalnagar-Siddapura, Murnad-Ammathi-Vontiangadi, Ammathi-Polibetta-Thithimathi, Siddapura-Polibetta, Polibetta-Gonicoppa, Kanur-Kutta, Virajpet-Siddapura, Madikeri-Chettalli-Siddapura, Bhagamandala-Karike, Madikeri-Galibeedu, Bhagamandala-Napoklu-Emmemadu Darga and Kadanga-Kokkanda Bane.
Mr. John said that most of the towns, including Madikeri, in the district were likely to face drinking water crisis. The Government should release a separate package to tackle the drinking water crisis. Drinking water projects approved for Madikeri were not being implemented for several reasons. The Government should take steps to implement them.
The process of shifting the offices of the Deputy Commissioner, Assistant Commissioner and other officials to a government building should be speeded up, Mr. John said. Mr. John said that the projects mentioned by him should be taken up on priority. The Government should respond positively to the needs of the people of Kodagu, he added.
