He was speaking at the Udupi CMC general body meeting held at Sathyamurthy auditorium here on Saturday July 31.
He said, “In the city, many buildings were constructed illegally, by encroaching the government land. Some people run their business in unauthorised shops, by misusing the name of the CMC president. Few petty shops have come up in prominent places of the city.”
Amritha Krishnamurthy, Kinnimulky councillor complained that there are no street lights from Kinnimulky gopura to taluk office, which is the main entrance to the city. “It can cause road accidents during the night. There are many unlicensed shops near Bhujanga Park. The owners of the shops were pointing their fingers at CMC president. But, I do not know on what basis permission has been given to these shops. Public were complaining shops in the vicinity causes traffic inconvenience. Therefore, form a uniform rule to all shops and street vendors.”
MLA Raghupati Bhat, raising issue on the proposed tender on maintained of street lights said, "As we are receiving several complaints over the maintained of street lights in the city, henceforth, it will be maintained by E-smart Energy Solution Limited with good service.
