Mangaluru, Jan 25: District officer of the Backward Classes Welfare department, Rashmi S R has responded positively to the poor condition of Madyar hostel that falls under the ambit of Kotekaru taluk panchayat (TP).
The onus of construction and upkeep of the Madyar hostel is on Karnataka Housing Board which has managed it for the last one year. The TP had conveyed completion of two drinking water connections to the hostel through its warden and also ordered providing two water tanks. A letter has been written to KHB to provide an alternative to STP.
Responding to the letter, Malini, chief officer of Kottekaru TP has directed repairs of streetlights and immediate installation of 8 bulbs on the street. There is paucity of financial grants-in aid for providing drinking water as the month of March is nearing.
