With residents living near Jayadeva Hospital coming together against Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited’s (BMRCL) decision to realign the Metro route, others, under the aegis of South Bangalore Residents’ Association have come together to protect the interests of Jayadeva Hospital.

On Thursday, a letter, signed by over 5,000 people, was sent to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy, Chief Secretary S V Ranganath and the BMRCL in support of the realignment. In their statement, the residents said that without realignment, Jayadeva Hospital will get crowded causing inconvenience, the main lung space for heart patients will be lost, enormous amount of infection will occur because of the micro dust and noise pollution during the construction work. The residents said Jayadeva Hospital will not only lose land, but the damage caused to Vani Vilas Hospital in the form of cracks, should also be considered.

Sreenath S, a businessman, and a resident of Dollar’s Colony in BTM Layout, said the realignment was the right decision. His interest in saving the hospital lies in the fact that his father-in-law was treated there.

“This hospital has saved many lives, at a very low cost. It is an internationally renowned hospital. A question of choosing between land acquisition, the Metro work and the hospital does not even occur here considering that the hospital should be saved in the larger public interest. If I had to chose between my property and Jayadeva Hospital, I will give away my land,” he said.
