The committee, that was appointed by the Karnataka government in December to sort out the demands of CMH Road property owners, who want the route to be realigned to Old Madras Road, will hold personal hearings with affected parties from February 1 to February 5.

The three-member expert committee, headed by Justice Shivshankar Bhat, to look into the realignment controversy of Bangalore Metro, conducted a spot survey at CMH Road and 100 Feet Road, Indiranagar, on Wednesday morning.

The committee, that was appointed by the Karnataka government in December to sort out the demands of CMH Road property owners, who want the route to be realigned to Old Madras Road, will hold personal hearings with affected parties from February 1 to February 5.

However, the fact that the inspection team was accompanied by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRC) Managing Director K N Srivastava, created a new rift, with senior advocate Pramila M Nesargi, who is representing the affected parties, accusing Mr Srivastava of committing a “cowardly act”.

“Mr Srivastava took the committee members for inspection without informing the aggrieved parties. There is every likelihood that he will mislead the members using facts and figures,” she stated in a press release.

However, Mr Srivastava, dismissing the latest debate, said, “The inspection was only to study the route alignment. How will they know about the proposed routes and the alternatives if the project authorities don’t tell them? Even the public will get an opportunity to interact with them and air their grievances during the personal hearings.” The committee is expected to submit their recommendations to the Government by February-end.
