Mysuru, June 20:- Srigandha Youth Association of Paduvarahalli here staged a protest on Wednesday, alleging corruption in roadworks near of Jaladarshini Guest House on Hunsur Road.
The protesters said that the road works have been done in association with Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) and University of Mysore. Instead of widening the road as they promised, they dug up the old road and asphalted the same. They didn’t spare even the footpath, the protesters said. Protesters suspect that the Rs 12.5 crore may have been gobbled up by the contractors and said that their complaints to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in Delhi and the Chief Minister’s office in Bengaluru are of no use.
President of the organisation, Paduvarahalli Ramakrishna, Haraduru Javaregowda, Tennis Gopi, A P Rajesh Gowda, G M Diwakar, Vinod Nagavala, M Shivaprakash and others were present. (MR/KS).
