By : M.S.Yatnatti Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore : "The object of the freedom fighters' BDA site is not to reward or compensate the sacrifices made in the freedom struggle. The object is to honour and mitigate the sufferings of those who had given their all for the country in the hour of its need,”. Freedom Fighters BDA sites allotments - Both the state Government and the the BDA treat the freedom fighters as beggars who queue up for crumbs doled out by the State. That is because they do not have any patriotism and self respect in themselves. This kind of attitude of the BDA officers dealing with such applications is highly condemnable. A 90 year old freedom fighter Sri B.M . Aeko Ramswamy who stays with his son at Bangalore for last 15 years has visited more than 50 times to Sham Bhatthe BDA commissioner with request to allot a site under "E " category . Mr Sham Bhatthe BDA commissioner does not value the value of freedom fighters . Mr Sham Bhat the BDA commissioner should understand the value of freedom of India and immediately allot the sites to eligible freedom fighters as it was allotted in the past without further delay. I request Chief Minister to call Mr Sham Bhatthe BDA commissioner to his office with file and issue orders with immediate effectto allot sites to last batch of applicants as per law .THE "BDA is not allotting "E” category sites to eligible freedom fighters. BDA does allotment in other ABCDF categories swiftly but not to "E” category sites .In 2007 Twenty-eight freedom fighters, all in their 80s and 90s, were allotted "E " category sites by thenGovernor Rameshwar Thakur, a freedom fighter himself, presented site allotment letters of the Bangalore Development Authority to them at a function organized in 2007 . Each of the freedom fighters was allotted a site measuring 30x40 ft in BTM Layout 6th Stage. This was the second time that the BDA was allotting sites to freedom fighters. Nineteen sites were allotted at Happy Valley Layout in Banashankari 5th stage by the former Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy. Another one last batch of applicants of freedom fighters are pending since 2007 and 2008 who have applied under freedom fighter quota .But BDA is not respecting freedom fighters and just postponing the allotment .
