Railway Goods Shed lorry parking row: MLA Tanveer Sait holds talks with DC

February 7, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: Even as the TAPCMS (Taluk Agricultural Produce Co-operative Marketing Society) agreed to allow parking of MNGT (Mysore New Goods Terminal) lorries at its premises on Jodi Tenginamara Road in Bannimantap for three more months following a direction from the Deputy Commissioner, NR MLA Tanveer Sait held talks with DC Rohini Sindhuri yesterday in an effort to find a permanent solution to the row, by setting up a lorry stand at the MUDA site adjacent to Gumnam Shavali Dargah located close to  Railway Goods Shed.

Tanveer Sait, who met DC Rohini Sindhuri at her office, told the DC that there is no permanent parking space for MNGT lorries.

Pointing out that lorries transporting goods and grains from Railway Goods Shed are being parked in the spacious premises of TAPCMS located on Jodi Tenginamara Road for years, he said that now the TAPCMS has asked the lorry owners to vacate the space. But thanks to the intervention of the DC, the TAPCMS agreed to allow parking of lorries for three more months, he noted. 

Stressing on the need for having a permanent lorry stand, Sait said that the ideal spot is the MUDA site adjacent to Gumnam Shavali Dargah. 

He appealed the DC to take measures for setting up the lorry stand at this spot and also to provide civic amenities such as sanitation, drinking water, power connection etc., at the stand.

Highlighting the advantages of setting up the lorry stand near the Dargah, he said that the completion of  works on the road that connects the Dargah with Ring Road will enable MNGT lorries to reach the Ring Road directly. 

Pointing out that a direct link between Gumnam Shavali Dargah and Ring Road will de-congest  traffic on Jodi Tenginamara Road, Sait brought to the notice of the DC about the obstacles created by the Railways for the completion of works.

Recalling that he had held talks with Railways DRM and the MP about the obstruction, Sait contended that the Railways seems to have cared little for solving the row. As such, the DC should take necessary measures to ensure that the Dargah roadworks are completed, he said.

During the course of the meeting, Sait presented documents related to the roadworks that is already in progress, but has been halted following obstruction by the Railways.

Referring to housing issues in his constituency, Sait brought to the notice of the DC about the sudden cancellation of allotment of 2,365 houses in NR Constituency. Maintaining that the cancellation came at a time when the contractor was about to build houses after the completion of the tender process, the MLA appealed the DC to look into the issue and take necessary measures for allotment of houses meant for poor people.

Railway Goods Shed Lorry Owners Association President and Congress leader Abdul Khader Shahid was present.
