Bangalore: Sachidananda Nagara Nyayapara Andolana does Gandhi-Giri in front of BBMP Commissioner requesting BBMP to execute the court order.
About 100 families met BBMP Commissioner Mr. Siddiah with roes and other flowers on Thursday, 16th September 2010 noon by 4 pm at BBMP Head Quarters in Corporation Bangalore.and submitted memorandum demanding solvation to their Khata Problem..
Members from Loksatta, Coalition Against Corruption, Smart Vote and Namma Bengaluru Foundation joined the group in solidarity.
Observing the roses on everybody's hand Mr. Siddiah joked whether it is war of roses. He admitted that giving khatas to some persons and denying to others is unjustified.
Sachidananda Nagar Site Owners complained with the BBMP Commissioner that BBMP officials at Rajarajeshwari Nagar Zone are not obeying the Court Orders, Lokayukta directions and the orders from their higher officers in regard with registering Khata's to all without discrimination in accordance with the Civl Court Order O.S. 2355/2001.
BBMP Additional Commissioner Mr. Ramachandra, who was supposed to execute the court order since March 2010, along with the other officials such as the Assistant Revenue Officer, keeps delaying the Khata issual with frivolous reasons such as MLAs letter and forged documents from private citizens. This kind of delaying tactics has been going on for more than 3 years, complained the site owners. The site owners also complained that the BBMP more than 70 to 80 khatas were issued to those who had paid “facilitation fee” through the Residents Welfare Association.
The complainants have also requested Lokayukta to intervene and take suitable action against the MLA for his meddling in BBMP functions and causing obstruction to BBMP officials from performing their duties and serving the citizens of Bangalore.
After hearing the petition by the 120 site owners of Sachidananda Nagar Layout, the BBMP Commissioner has assured that he call all related fights within 24 hours and sincerly take action to solve the problem.
