BMIC project faces more roadblocks

Written by: Staff

Mysore, July 6 (UNI) The ongoing tussle between the Karnataka Government and the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE), the promoters of the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC), today took a curious turn, with the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) officials preventing the company's preparations for the bhoomi pooja of the project from the Mysore-end tomorrow.

With police security, the MUDA team evicted the workers and NICE executives from the work site located on the outskirts of the city.

The police barricaded the temporary road put up by NICE for tomorrow's function.

NICE Advisor Venkataramanappa told the MUDA officials that they had commenced the work as per the Supreme Court verdict. However, the MUDA officials refused to buy the argument, saying that they could not commence work as they had not taken possession of the land.

It may be recalled that MUDA had refused to hand over 14 acres and 14 guntas of land to the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB), unless it remitted Rs 85 lakh towards the land.

Mr Venkataramanappa said they had nothing to do with MUDA as the issue was between NICE and KIADB. ''We have already deposited the necessary amount with KIADB. It is up to them to remit the same to MUDA,'' he added.
