Congress reiterates stand on parking fee issue in city

Congress reiterates stand on parking fee issue in city
Deccan Herald

The ruling Congress in the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike continues to reiterate that vehicle parking fee will not be re-introduced in the City despite the official machinery’s repeated sta-tements to the contrary, in the recent past.

The ruling party’s leader in the Mahangara Palike Council H Ravindra on Monday said that it did not matter what the government had already said on the issue; if need be the Mahanagara Palike would appeal to the government again.

Political hue

Speaking to reporters later, Ravindra also gave a political colour to the issue.

“Parking fee won’t be back at least till our term ends”, he said referring to the year end elections due in the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike.

Shot down

Mahanagara Palike Co-mmissioner K Jothiramalingam had only last week noted that parking fee will be back in the month of April.

The State government has shot down the Mahanagara Palike’s proposal on free parking and the City police are in the process of identifying the roads where it wants the system to be re-introduced, Jothi-ramalingam had said.
