Udupi: Unequal Distribution of 14th Finance Commission Fund Dominates CMC Meet

Udupi: BJP councilors created a scene during the CMC meeting over the alleged unequal distribution of the 14th Finance Commission Fund here, on September 30.

Yaspal Suvarna said that the CMC had hiked 30% tax for all wards but while initiating funds for the wards, it had considered only 25 wards neglecting the others. The members demanded for the withdrawal of the supplementary agenda containing draft for utilization of funds released by the central government under the 14th Finance Commission. CMC president Yuvraj assured the members of reconsidering the draft.

Heated arguments were witnessed between CMC Commissioner Manjunathayya and Congress councilor Prashanth Amin. Prashanth alleged that CMC Commissioner and the bidder of Malpe beach maintenance contract had links as irregularities are being witnessed in the beach administration. Visitors are being overcharged for parking and other amenities breaching the contract formulated by the district administration. He also said that CMC members were kept in the dark while formulating policies. The shops and food courts in Malpe beach are hindering free movement of traffic.

CMC Commissioner defending himself said that the issues are to be discussed during Malpe beach committee meeting and not during the CMC meeting. “I am an honest officer; I have no links with any bidder,” he added.

Yaspal Suvarna said that the works undertaken in the purview of each ward should be intimated to the councilors well in advance. He also said that the locals should be given preference in Malpe for setting up food stalls.

Janardhan Bhandarkar said that Nirmithi Kendri was bypassing CMC by giving statements about the project. Most of the projects undertaken by Nirmithi Kendra are pending.

CMC President Yuvraj said that a Rs 168 crore proposal has been drafted for the construction of UGD in the CMC limits.

CMC Vice-President Amrutha Krishnamurthy and other councilors were present.
