Mr Kannan has complained to BBMP commissioner and written an e-mail to him.This an extract of his e-mail. "It was heartening to read from yesterday's Newspaper that you have decided to crack the whip on illegal constuction and you have empowered the EEs, AEEs and Ward Engineers accordingly.Your Order states that even after issuing Notices to Owners indulging in illegal construction, if it is found that construction is still going on, then strict action will be taken against such Assistant Executive Engineers.It is precisely this failure to take action I would like to bring to your kind attention.There is a multi-storeyed building coming up in the above Plot in gross violation of construction bye-laws. From its inception, when the excavation started, we, the concerned neighbours have been relentlessly following up with the Whitefield Ward Office. But till today no action has been taken to stop this construction. The building has come up to three floors!Six months ago, to be precise In November 2014, I took your Engineers Mr K. Venkatesh, AEE and Mr. Mallinath, Ward Engineer from Whitefield Ward Office to the Site mentioned above and showed them the building under construction. The necessry setbacks as specified by the law was not given. The deviation under various heads were as much as 70% and more.Further the barricades around the Site was not provided. The entire area has been polluted with dust and construction debris. I am an Asthmatic and 72 years old. My health has deteriorated due to the reckless construction. The approach road to the site has sunk due to the movement of heavily laden trucks carrying construction materils and Excavators.The sanctioned plan is not displayed at site. When I asked for a copy of the approved Building Plan, Mr. Mallinath asked me to come to his office and collect it. I have gone with prior appointment to his office. He is never available in the office. I have gone there several times with or without appointment. Mr. Venkatesh, AEE has been transferred and Mr. Madhsudan has taken over. I have not had the previlege of meeting him. None in the office could tell us for sure, when they will be available. If they are not there, none else can help you with Building Plan or for that matter anything at all, as they are clueless.The BBMP went through the motion of issuing a Notice to the Owner. But the illegal construction continues to this day. On June 22, I managed to bring Mr.Mallinath to the Site. We, the neighbours confronted the Builder one Mr. Reddy about the illegality of the construction in the prescence of Mr. Mallinath. The Builder was defiant and a fracas ensued. He threatened to assault Mr. Ramu, the concerned next door neighbour and Owner of the house at Plot No.38. As it was snowballing to a fisticuff, I rang up the Whitefield Police Station to send the Hoysala. I further spoke to Mr. Narasimhamurthy, the SHO and the Police Inspector, Whitefield Police Station. By the time, the Constable came, we had all disbursed. We are senior citizens living peacefully in the neighbourhood. This unlawful building has disturbed the peace. It is going to get worse. This is a narrow road. Just imagine the chaos, this illegal building is going to create with parking and other attendent civic problems.May I appeal to you to stop this unauthorised construction and take stringent action against your employees for dereliction of duty?.”Police commissioner and BBMP commissioner should come to rescue of senior citizens and residents of area”.
