BBMP Councillors, cutting across party lines, stressed the need to release medical grants from the Mayor’s funds.

The debate started when Kaveripura councillor R Prakash urged Mayor B S Sathyanarayana to release medical grants. The Mayor said the Chief Minister’s relief fund can be utilised for this. “At BBMP, we have not allotted any funds for this,” he said.

Former Mayor S K Nataraj said the only power the Mayor has is to release funds, but that cannot be released for medical grants. “Let us meet the CM in this regard,” he said.
