Bengaluru: Toll collection decision in state highways was of BJP government - Revanna


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Oct 10: PWD minister, H D Revanna, claimed that the decision to collect toll charges on state highways was not taken by the current coalition government. He said that the then BJP government had decided to levy toll charges in the year 2010.

"Tender has been floated for collecting toll charges in respect of 17 state roads. Decision to collect toll pertains to roads like Padubidri - Karkala, Hosakote - Chinthamani and Tumakuru - Pavagada roads. These roads were developed under the grant of Asian Development Bank and World Bank by Karnataka Road Development Corporation Ltd under K-Ship project. The toll collection tender is for three years. Toll charges will increase by ten percent per year with 30 percent hike in the third year. Rules were framed for toll collection in 2015, and tenders were floated in 2017," he explained.

About the death of an elephant after having been hit by a bus in Bandipur forest area, he said the proposal to erect humps on this road would be considered if the same comes from forest department.

In the meanwhile, Karkala MLA and chief whip in the state assembly, Sunil Kumar, said that collection of toll charges on state highways will put additional burden on the citizens. He urged the government to reverse the decision although this was taken by the previous government, for the benefit of the people.

    Harish, Kadaba your comment shows that, how much you are blind on BJP government. Temples authority changes is an just documents changing process. But tollgate is 75-80 cr plus interest, its an extra burden on government. BJP had money to buy politicians from other party, but they don't have money to develop state roads on 2010.
    I hope current government will find out the solution, because its an JANAPARA government with humanity aspects.

    Mamu- You waived off user fee at toll gates rather politicize the issue.
    You people rule every alternate years, outcome people suffer. -Blame game
    All parties are rich enough to bear the amount, use party funds and help the people-
    Serving the people - Farmers and needy only - others will some how manage to get things done at the right time.
    Your manifesto talk about hundreds of development and helping/ uplifting the poor.

    Rathan & Bhagath, As we all aware that road was sanctioned at the time of BJP & Late Dr. V.S. Acharya start-up the project. But its not disclosed that, BJP government took loan from Asian Development Bank and World Bank by Karnataka Road Development Corporation Ltd under K-Ship project. So if current government dismiss the past contracts, then in future which banks will give the loan for state progress. Because, already government had burden of farmer loans & now again road loan. The joke part is, BJP also part of protest were their government only the root cause for this issue.
