Mysuru: Chamaraja MLA L. Nagendra this morning undertook a padayatra in Ward No.1 (Lakshmikanthanagar-Hebbal 1st Stage) and heard grievances from public.
He began his padayatra after performing puja at Prashantha Ganapati Temple. Even as he commenced his padayatra, some elderly women complained of problems they faced in getting ration cards. Nagendra directed the officials to take a serious look into the issue.
He later inspected several parks in the Ward, when the residents complained of indiscreet dumping of wastes and poor maintenance. He instructed the officials to clear the parks of debris and wastes. The MLA sought co-operation of the residents in maintenance of parks.
As he moved on, Nagendra found some defunct street lights, following which he directed the officials to remove old poles and replace them with new ones.
The MLA later walked on the Ring Road, when the residents along the Service Road complained of severe UGD problems.
He told MUDA officials to address the issue, when the officials said the maintenance of Ring Road has been handed over to National Highway Authorities of India (NHAI) and as such it was NHAI’s responsibility to address the issue. Nagendra then directed MUDA officials to immediately write to NHAI and bring the issue to their notice.
He took the MCC officials to task for issuing licences for construction of multi-storey buildings along the Ring Road. The officials said that they have served notices to the owners of such buildings for violations.
As he went around the area, Nagendra took objection to the unscientific construction of manholes and directed to build manholes in a scientific manner.
MCC Health Officer Dr. Nagaraj, former Corporator M. Shivanna, MCC Zone-5 in-charge Assistant Commissioner Kumar Nayak, Development Officer Veeresh, ARO Dhanalakshmi, MUDA Assistant Executive Engineer (AEE) Suresh Babu, CESC personnel and other officials were present.
