Mysuru, March 3:- “A 500 metres area around Sewage farm has been announced as buffer zone without even holding a meeting with the citizens. The residents who have been residing in the area for over 40 years are facing a lot of inconvenience due to this lopsided decision. The government should revert the decision with immediate effect,” said former Mayor B L Bhyrappa at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Saturday.
“People are unable to take up land related construction works. As it is being considered as buffer zone, the change of site map and other works are being cancelled unnecessarily. As the senior residents send their children to other places for education and jobs, they are finding it difficult to undertake land related works. When I was the Mayor, I had decided to relocate the Sewage farm, but it was called off giving unnecessary reason. Sewage farm can be relocated from the city area to the outskirts, but can the houses and apartments be shifted?” he questioned.
He said that a protest would be staged and a memorandum will be submitted to the Deputy Commissioner. He warned of taking the issue to the law court if action is not forthcoming.
He urged the DC and MCC Commissioner to give an explanation.
He alleged that Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) is interested only in constructing new layouts and not in providing basic amenities to existing areas at Vijayanagar 4th Stage and other places.
