Differences of opinion persists in the BMP on the renovation of the Puttanna Kanagal Chitramandira located in Jayanagar.

At the council meeting on Thursday, the BJP opined that the work should be given to Kannada cine star Vishnuvardhan who has volunteered to take it up, but the Congress and JD(S) favoured tender process. The council was informed that there are second thoughts on BMP’s earlier decision to renovate the structure at its own cost and then give it out on lease.

BMP Chief Engineer Projects Ranganath told the council that the estimated cost of restoration being as high as Rs 100 crore, the possibility of issuing the work to a private party on rot-basis (renovate, operate, transfer) is being explored. Mayor Mumtaz Begum said the traffic police who are presently using the Puttannakanagal Chitramandira premises on a temporary basis, have been asked to vacate soon.
