The road widening work from government hospital to forest department has been halted by MLA Jayanna after he inspected the area and found out that the 2.65km stretch was being built unscientifically. A wide area which belonged to the government on either side of the road was left barren which irked the MLA who summoned the engineer and stopped the works right away.
The road widening work on the national highway 209 was inspected by the MLA recently who later accused the engineer of unscientific works. “Already Rs 7 crore was released for the works, but the work done is of a very poor quality. The pits are not closed which are causing lots of problems to the school children who are passing through the way.
“There was no prior notice before the start of the work. They are doing works according to their whims and fancies. The works too are of poor quality. Earlier, K Road residents were made to vacate their houses and are now homeless. The works are done just for namesake. Due to such people, the government will get a bad name,” Jayanna lashed out at the officials.
Zila Panchayat member Yariyur J Yogesh, Congress leader Kinakahalli Rachaiah, K Mallayya, Honnur Revanna and others were present on the occasion.
