BANGALORE: The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Opposition leader M Udayshankar has demanded mayor Sharadamma to release the remaining funds from Mayor’s Medical Fund.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Udayshankar said that BBMP has allotted Rs 5 crore for Mayor’s Medical Fund, of which Rs 3.5 crore has been spent. “BBMP has the provision of spending the remaining Rs 1.5 crore within this financial year and we therefore want the mayor to release the remaining funds before March 31,” he said. “Though Mayor has to spend Rs 1.5 crore there is only Rs 6,000 in the account,” he alleged. He also demanded to release the medical fund of Rs 4 lakh per ward.
Probe inquiry Udayshankar further said that there is a need to initiate probe on the fund released during S K Nataraj’s tenure as mayor. He has spent amount from Mayor’s Medical Fund in the last month of his tenure which does not have any proper mechanism. There is a need to conduct probe,” he said.
‘No coordination’“There is no coordination among mayor Sharadamma, deputy mayor Harish and Ruling party president B R Nanjundappa. They should concentrate more on developmental activities.”
