Santosh, a resident of Hinkal, complained about encroachment of 8 acres of land at Diwanakere near Kakanakatte coming under Hinkal limits.

Dr. Premkumar assured of sending a team to the spot for verification, following which action will be taken.
Suresh, a resident of Siddapura in K.R. Nagar taluk, alleged irregularities in the sanctioning of farm ponds in GP limits. Accusing a person of getting sanction for farm ponds year after year, he wanted to know how only one person was getting permission, while others, who have been applying for years had failed. In response, the authorities promised to verify the allegations.
