The land owners whose lands have been notified for the proposed Shivaram Karanth Layout are gathering in large numbers in the city on Monday to submit a memorandum to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah requesting him to denotify their lands.

They said the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has failed to develop the layout though six years have lapsed since their lands were notified  and are seeking the government to denotify their lands as it would enable them to either sell their lands or develop them.

The land owners from 17 villages in Yeshwantpur, Yelahanka and Hessarghatta hobli are assembling near Mahatma Gandhi statue on M G Road under the leadership of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Spokesperson V S Ugrappa on Monday morning.

Ugrappa said, “We would be gathering to honour Siddaramaiah for becoming the Chief Minister and to submit the memorandum. We had promised to help the land owners whose lands are notified for Shivaram Karanth Layout when I and Siddaramaiah were the leaders of the Opposition in every possible way. Therefore, it is appropriate to submit a memorandum. We are confident of getting a favourable response as Siddaramaiah understands the problems of the farmers”.

The BDA had notified 3,546 acres of land around 17 villages between Doddaballapur Road and Hessarghatta for the l6ayout.
