Mysuru, March 23:- “Central Pollution Control Board is visiting Sewage Farm and the Waste Management unit. I will brief them about the irresponsible behaviour of Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) during their visit,” said former minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader S A Ramadas at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Thursday.
“Tonnes of wastes beyond the limitations of Pollution Control Board are dumped at the Sewage Farm. Though it is in the green belt, the plant has been used without even converting it for the desired purpose. Two private persons are illegally taking up the wastes from the plant and are segregating valuables. I will register a complaint against the two,” he added.
“Though there is no proper waste management, the MCC has taken funds of Rs 33 crore from the government. I will bring all these to the notice of the commission,” Ramadas warned.
“I had observed an indefinite hunger strike, demanding proper waste management. The district administration and MCC have not taken any solution. I will resort to a vigorous protest from April 4,” he warned.
Jogi Manju, B V Manjunath, Vadivelu, Hemanth Kumar Gowda and others were present. (MR/KMR).
