Mysore/Mysuru: Following incessant rains, most of the roads in Narasimharaja (NR) Constituency have turned slushy cesspools. Also many houses and other structures have got damaged by torrential rains.
With heavy rains bringing untold misery to the people, former Mayor Sandesh Swamy, along with local Corporators and MCC officials, visited rain-affected areas such as Yaraganahalli, Shaktinagar, Teachers Layout, Triveni Circle and Vidyashankar Layout on Saturday to personally take stock of the damages and the condition of roads and drainages.
Speaking after inspection, Sandesh Swamy said that several private layouts that were formed with MUDA approval, were handed over to the MCC in 2016-17. Though these layouts lacked infrastructure during handover, they were handed over to MCC upon the assurance that pending infrastructural works would be completed. But the promise has remained unfulfilled due to the callousness of the authorities and lack of co-ordination between MUDA and MCC officials.
Pointing out that he toured several areas coming under MCC Wards 35, 36 and 37, Sandesh Swamy said that it seems that NR Constituency has been totally neglected in development.
Noting that while neighbouring Chamaraja and Krishnaraja constituencies are getting hundreds of crores of rupees for infrastructure development, he alleged that NR MLA and the officials are apathetic towards development of the constituency.
Continuing, Sandesh Swamy said that most of the promises made by MUDA while handing over private layouts to MCC have not been met. Maintaining that many roads have turned into slush fields or dotted with crater-like potholes, he said that he saw the retaining walls of many drainages collapsing while some others are woefully overflowing due to clogging.
Bemoaning that rainwater has been gushing into several houses in many areas of the Constituency whenever it rained heavily, he said it seems that those who have built homes in these areas have no alternative other than migrating elsewhere. Appealing the District Minister to concentrate on NR too along with three other Assembly segments of the city, he urged the Government to announce a special package for NR, which has been neglected for long.
I fully agree with all the points listed in the article. This is absolute apathy by each and every elected representatives of N R Constituency. They have a total disregard to the purpose they are elected for. Instead they are busy improving their own lives. One cannot understand why the other Constituencies/Wards can improve and N R constituency. Complete basic amenities have gone for a toss and each one of the so called elected representatives have been busy encouraging illegal constructions and shops all through the area.
MCC and MUDA are the ones that are cesspool of corruption
Thanks to NR MLA, who is MLA since 15 years and his father was for MLA for almost 30 years. Still no proper roads, sewer lines, storm water lines and basic amenities in NR constituency in majority of wards, he is working for some elite people only and busy in making new layouts with his chamcha’s . Thanks to Dasara that some road in NR get refurnished due to VIP movement.
MLA Never visit his constituency wards, meet people, take people grievance, nothing ! Most backward constituency in Mysore with all slums and making new slums.
Absolutely the most backward constituency of the City. Looks like the elected representatives are awake only during the night for their nocturnal activities and not developmental activities. How is it that the other constituencies are way ahead in development and not this specific constituency. Looks like the MLA, Corporators, MUDA and MCC – all are hand in glove.
