Mysuru: Mysuru district incharge minister Dr H.C. Mahadevappa has sought the allotment of Rs 540 crore in the forthcoming budget for the overall development of Mysuru city. He made the demand at the KDP meeting chaired by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah here on Wednesday. During the meeting, KR Constituency MLA Somshekar highlighted the fact that more than 10 lakh tonnes of solid waste remains undisposed, at Suez farm solid waste management plant at Vidyaranyapuram, which had become a cause of worry for  people living in areas around the plant who have to bear the foul smell. Mr Mahadevappa intervened and said that Mysuru City Corporation(MCC) would able to address the problem and also take over the development of the city if Rs 540 crores was allotted. The MCC Commissioner Mr Ramesh told Mr Siddaramaiah that they had received reports of experts on demolishing and rebuilding historic heritage structures like Lansdowne building and Devraja market instead of restoring them.  PWD officials clarified that they had received environment clearance for taking up developmental work atop Chamundi hills. Both the projects were opposed by some Mysureans and environmentalists. Meanwhile,as many as 41 multi-village water supply projects are being taken to provide water for 1137 villages at a cost of Rs 76989.96 crores. Mr Siddaramaiah took executive engineer Mr Manjunath to task for the delay in completion of work at Shiramalli in HD Kote and the sub-standard work at Doddakavalande in Nanjangud taluk. The CM warned him that he would be suspended if he failed to complete work at Shiramalli by January 31.
