Members of 15 to 20 residents’ associations from Ward 14 and 15 of Byatrayanapura City Municipal Council locked up the CMC office and blocked the road on the busy Bellary Road on Tuesday for some time to protest against alleged irregularities in the CMC.

They withdrew the protest after Commissioner C K Daswanth assured them of action against the guilty. Earlier, they took out a protest march from Kodigehalli bus stop via Sahakarnagar to Byatarayanapura CMC.

The protesters alleged that large-scale irregularities had taken place in the implementation of solid waste management project and asphaltation of roads in Ward 14 and 15 comprising Sahakarnagar, Kodigehalli, Tatanagar, Virupakshapura, Balaji Layout among others.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, the protesters Ashwathanarayan Gowda and K N Jagdish Kumar, said that the civic body had permitted digging of roads to lay optic fibre cables. Though the digging was over, crores of rupees, which should have been paid by the OFC companies to the City Municipal Council, appears to have been swallowed, they alleged.
