Members of KPTC Employees’ Cooperative Society and Yelahanka Layout Site Owners’ Welfare Association have requested the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) to realign the proposed ring road in Yelahanka, as the project would take away their sites.
Association office bearer B A Devarasegowda on Thursday said there are 440 sites at Herohalli, of which 131 sites are earmarked for the ring road. “The government had issued a notification to acquire 11.03 acres from the layout to construct the Peripheral Ring Road. They have not served notices to the owners in this regard,” he alleged.
He said the BDA was offering compensation, but it was not sufficient to purchase another site. Gowda alleged that as per the city development plan of the BDA, this area was earmarked for residential purpose.
“Now, BDA is flouting its own rules. If the BDA does not step back, we will stage a hunger strike in front of the Chief Minister’s residence,” he threatened.
