1 min read

Mysuru: The animosity between the corporators and MCC Commissioner Gurudutta Hegde that was till recently restricted to council meeting, has spilled over to the corridors of the local body.

A group of Corporators irrespective of party on November 22 met the Commissioner to express their anguish.

The corporators led by BJP Corporator Dr Ashwini Sharath took exception to the clearing of bills of contractors of Dasara works undertaken in 2017- 18. It was done on the instructions of district minister V Somanna. The Commissioner should have instead cleared the pending bills of regular contractors which has accrued up to Rs 140 crore, on a seniority basis.

Ashwini told media at MCC corridors “We will also take up the issue with State Government as the regular funds of MCC should be used only for development works. We will seek a detailed probe into payment of bills”.

Corporators Prameela Bharat, Begum Pallavi, Vedavati, Satyaraj and Sridhar and former Corporator K C Showkath Pasha were present.
