Minister dedicates Library, Community Hall to residents

DSC_0431-webKoramangala 3rd Block’s Library and Community Hall was dedicated to the community by Karnataka Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy, at a well attended function on Saturday 14th February.
Also participating at the function were the Corporator, Koramangala Ward, Kokila Radhakrishna, and the Corporator, Adugodi Ward,  Murugesh Mudaliar.
President of Koramangala 3rd Block Residents’ Welfare Association Ajay Reddy welcomed the gathering and thanked the Minister for all the efforts he has put in over the years to accomodate requests made by the Koramangala 3rd Block RWA over the years. He recalled the events of 2009 where the Minister was responsible for ensuring that the park was restored to the community. Today the park and the new library building stand testament to the support extended by the Minister to the community.
Built from MLA grants and BBMP funds, the library and community hall building has approximately 1200 sq ft of constructed space with an approximate construction budget of Rs 20 Lacs.

Speaking at the function, Ajay Reddy and Reggie Thomas recalled how the residents were suffering from rapid commercialisation especially near the BDA complex. Many of the residents are unable to move out their cars from their homes due to indiscriminate/haphazard parking of vehicles. To put an end to this menace, we must collectively work out plans and stop illegal commercialisation in residential areas. The Minister has also promised to support in this regard, they said and added that at least “let our children live in peace in future”.
The Minister who spoke congratulated the residents as well as the 3rd Block RWA for maintaining the park, playground and the basketball court annexe etc. On flooding issues in 4th Block, he said that a private firm has been entrusted to clean up the Bellandur Lake. After that work, he hoped there would be no problem of flooding in Koramangala.
Later some residents complained of some civic issues. S R Vishwanath complained of non-functioning of borewell and another resident complained of uncovered trenches on 12th Main road near Telephone exchange. The Minister immediately called up the concerned person and took to task and directed him to cover it by tomorrow. The RWA thanked the architect Kavitha Sastry and the contractor Adil for the good work done.
