Rs. 118-cr. action plan for Bangalore Urban district

Staff Reporter

Bangalore: The Bangalore Urban Zilla Panchayat approved a Rs. 118-crore action plan for the district at a meeting held on Saturday. In the meeting, chaired by president T. Venkatalakshmi, 19 villages from three taluks were selected for comprehensive development, under the Suvarna Gramodaya project. A sum of Rs. 17 crore has been sanctioned for the same out of which Rs. 2.85 crore has been released.

Taking cognisance of the pressing development issues, the zilla panchayat is preparing several reports with the help of various non-governmental organisations. Eighteen such reports have been approved by the State Government. The members welcomed the reports but stressed the need to incorporate suggestions of the local people in various taluks.

The issue of stray dogs came up and members alleged that dogs caught in Bangalore had been let loose on the outskirts of the metropolis by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike. Concern was raised over the dogs posing a threat to the villagers, especially children. Members demanded that the issue be raised with the BBMP.
