Mysuru, September 26:- MLA S A Ramadas inaugurated drinking water facility and conducted cleanliness drive at Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Nagar at 4th and 5th block of Goruru Ashraya Badavane to mark the birth anniversary of Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya here on Wednesday.
“Around 2,816 houses have been constructed at 7 blocks and around 826 houses are yet to be constructed. Families below the poverty line will be given houses at Rs 25,000. It is unfortunate that these houses are sold for Rs 8-9 lakh. Much-needed drinking water facility has been inaugurated here. Schemes worth Rs 26 lakh have been inaugurated. The layout lacks electricity. I will discuss with the minister regarding this. We will use Rs 40 lakh paid by the residents for the purpose,” he said.
He also inaugurated cleanliness drive to mark Swachh Bharat campaign.
