It is very difficult to understand government policies and priorities, much more so in the case of Municipalities, particularly the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC).
For instance, the MCC, which has long since completed the laying of a pukka footpath on the Southern side of Sahukar Channaiah road (having, among other buildings, the Saraswathipuram Police Station, the Somani Teachers’ College, the residences of late MLA H.S. Shankaralingegowda and Corporator Nandeesh Preetham) is now busy laying the footpath on the Northern side of the road, starting from the Eastern end, where the footpath faces only a long wall separating the road from the University grounds.
It is not known when the MCC’s benign attention will be directed towards the Western end, having many residential buildings, housing senior citizens among others, who are badly in need of a level walking space when they venture out of their houses.
Now they have to manoeuvre over a rough uneven ground at considerable risk to their limbs.
Secondly, the drainage in front of their houses (facing the Corporator’s residence) is clogged and rain water stagnates, providing rich breeding ground for mosquitoes.
With dengue fever being heard of so often, this is an alarming situation and appeals to the concerned have not yielded any results so far.
Will the Mysuru City Corporation please wake up, pay attention to these pressing problems and redress them as early as possible?
