Prohibit private vehicles to Chamundi Hills, requests MGP
A delegation of Mysuru Grahaka Parishat (MGP) met Deputy Commissioner D Randeep and discussed about the development works atop the Chamundi Hills, proposed construction of library in people’s park and the water crisis in the city and the need for its conservation.
The delegation urged the DC to extend the prohibition of the private vehicles to Chamundi Hills during Ashada. The construction of multi-level shopping complex and other construction works which harm the nature of the hills should be stopped, the delegation requested.
They also suggested that the public library may be shifted to the ground floor of old palace offices building, diagonally opposite to the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC). Offices functioning there can be moved to the preset public library building. Such a move will provide the library with adequate space for books and parking in the city centre and save People’s Park. It will also save government money.
The delegation suggested for a 24×7 emergency squad for the repair works of water leakage to overcome the present water crisis. The squad should be given power to penalise those who waste water.
MGP President S D Saokar, Prof R Chandraprakash, Dr M M Shenoy, Secretary of MGP and executive committee member Ashwini Ranjan were part of the delegation. DC assured the delegations that he would look into these issues after the Dasara.
