Priority will be given to urgent needs, says legislator

Priority will be given to urgent needs, says legislator
DH News Service,Bangalore:
Sarvagnanagar, a constituency with problems aplenty, will wear a new and pleasant look in two years. But presently we will undertake projects that need to be addressed urgently, said newly-elected Sarvagnanagar MLA, KJ George. He was addressing the residents of his constituency at a Janaspandana organised by Deccan Herald and Prajavani.

"The new constituencies have hundreds of problems and all the problems cannot be solved in one go. On the basis of priorities, we can carry out developmental projects," said the MLA.

The MLA added, “It is not advisable on the part of people to be completely dependent on officers, but there is need for active officials in some department. It is not possible to remain mute spectators to officials' inaction for the failure in solid waste management.”

He quoted the Chief Minister to say that a big ‘garbage mafia’ is active in the city. However, there is need for the officers to take precautionary measure to deal with the solid waste management, he added. He also felt the need for BWSSB officers to redress public grievances quickly.

The legislator stated that the State Government has released a sum of Rs 19 crore for various projects ,but denied having received even a rupee from contractors. “I am committed to quality work in my constituency. Next month, I will have a new office where people, irrespective of their political beliefs, can come and register their grievances,” he said.

The office will work from 10 am to 7 pm, to receive complaints from the people and initiate necessary action. “It is not possible to redress all grievances, so in future Janaspandana programmes may be organised every Saturday, in the respective wards. People can submit their memoranda at their respective wards too, or call 98450 67437 to lodge complaints,” he added.

Fly-over by April

The fly-over near the ITC factory, work on which had come to a halt, will be begun, and work will conclude by March or April, said TJ George.

He expressed his concern over the fly-over construction work, which is progressing at snail’s pace.
