Mysuru, December 27:- District convener of Dalita Sangharsha Samithi (DSS) Bettaiah Kote has alleged that land mafia has encroached the market area on M G Road in the city, but officials have turned a blind eye.
He was talking at a press meet held at Mysuru Press Club on Wednesday.
“A group of people tried to construct a compound wall at the marketplace by threatening the farmers. They stopped the compound construction when DSS protested against it. Though it was brought to the notice of the officials, they have not taken any action for reasons known to them,” he alleged. He called upon the public to come forward to protect the government property.
Shambhulinga Swamy, Rathnapuri Puttaswamy, Uma Mahadeva and others were present. (MR/KMR)
