The general body meeting of the City corporation has the rehabilitation plan for 42 people affected by Hidkal dam on its agenda but the corporation never thinks of the rehabilitation of the master plan affected some of whom who have lost all their land and business premises.
Take this for instance, Mr. N G Bhatt who had a shop on Congress road was demolished in 1994 under road widening and then he was alloted a shop on Rent for the first 5 years and then standing committee had passed a resolution that the master plan affected may be given full rights of the said shop. But even after 22 years and the said resolution sent to the urban development ministry nothing has happened. For the past 22 years Mr.Bhatt has been visiting the corporation but all in vain. Most of the primary affected then have already died.
The corporation has land to give to the Hidkal dam affected in the city, which has to be given but then same justice must be applied for the rehabilitation of the master plan affected also.
