Bad roads get worse during rain

HUBLI: With monsoon rain catching up, woes of residents of Sadashiv colony, Vinutana colony and Chetana colony are increasing. For, these areas do not have proper roads and gutters. Many of the interior roads in these colonies are not tarred and they have become muddy, uneven and slippery due to rain.

When it rains, water mixed with garbage enters compounds of houses in the area. Potholes get filled with water. Those who use these roads risk limb and life. The roads are especially risky for children and senior citizens.

Speaking to TOI, Shek Ibrahim of Vinutana Colony said he is living in the area since the past three years, and the state of the roads has always been the same. "It worsens during the rainy season, and we find it difficult to step out of the house," he added.

Heaps of garbage is dumped by the roadside and on empty sites in Sadashiv colony and Vinutana colony, but the corporation does not take any steps to ensure regular cleaning of these areas. Abdul Rahman of Sadashiv colony said because of garbage mounds, stray pig and dog menace has increased in the colony.

Tar roads soon: Corporator

Speaking to TOI, area corporator Kallakuntla Suvarna said that Vinutana Colony came under the HDMC fold only about five year ago. The corporation has provided other facilities to the area with limited funds.

Tender process for building roads and gutters in the colony has been completed.

Sadashiv Colony roads will be tarred in the coming days with a cost of Rs 20 lakh.

Road metalling work is almost complete in Vinutana colony, for which the corporation has spent Rs 8 lakh.

Tar roads will be laid with next year's funds, he added.

No one-shot solution to pig menace

HUBLI: Pig population is growing out of proportion in Hubli but the corporation has not been able to come out with any effective solution to the problem.

Last week mayor Pandurang Patil issued a warning to pig owners that their pigs will be shot down if found straying. However, pig owners do not seem to have taken the shoot-at-sight order seriously. So, pigs continue to move around freely on the city roads.

"The corporation has issued instructions to us to take our pigs off the road. But, where do we move the pigs? Has the corporation provided us an alternative site where we can leave the animals? If it provides, we will certainly shift the pigs there," said a pig owner, who did not wish to be named.

Also, the idea of shooting stray pigs has not gone down well with some animal welfare organizations. Condemning HDMC's move, Meghraj Kawad, president, Hubli Pinjarapol Saunstha said: "All animals have the right to live, and the corporation cannot snatch this basic right away from pigs. The pig owners should be persuaded to take their livestock off the road, and more importantly, the HDMC should provide them an alternative place to leave the pigs."

It is not the first time that the corporation is issuing shoot-at-sight order for stray pigs. It was implemented once in 2005-06 too, but the corporation had to withdraw the order after a freak accident, in which a bullet, aimed at a pig, hit a passerby and injured him. So, if the corporation has to execute its order this time, it needs to be extra careful. "Of course, we will take all precautionary measures this time and ensure that such mishaps do not repeat," the mayor told TOI.

Pandurang Patil said they have not yet embarked 0n the drive to kill pigs because they want to give sufficient time to pig owners to take away their animals from roads. "This kind of drive will be carried out only after proper consultation with all the stakeholders," the mayor added. He also appealed to residents to cooperate with the corporation to keep the areas clean and garbage free.

Children more vulnerable

Meantime, pig menace continues unabated in the twin cities of Hubli and Dharwad, posing problems to pedestrians and motorists alike.

Children are the most vulnerable group. Last week, a six-year-old boy was bitten by stray pigs and was admitted to KIMS hospital with severe injuries.

There have been several cases of motorists getting injured in their effort to avoid pigs on roads, said traffic police.

‘Convert State highway into national highway’

Quote:
Pralhad Joshi, Dharwad MP, urged Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways C.P. Joshi to consider a proposal to convert the 111-km State highway between Annigeri and Ramanagaram that passes through Navaglund, Hebasur, Sulla and Dharwad into a National Highway.

According to a release issued here, Mr. Joshi, in a letter to the Union Minister, urged him to consider the proposal under a project of developing 85,000 km of national highways under the 12th Plan, which also included converting some of the State highways into national highways.

Boosting development

Mr Joshi said that if the road was converted into a National Highway, it would allow overall development of the region.

“The road will provide connectivity to four other National Highways, NH-63 (Ankola-Gooty), NH-217 (Bijapur-Hubli), NH-4 (Pune-Bangalore) and NH-4A (Belgaum-Panaji), thereby opening up heritage centres like Hampi, Badami and Pattadakal and others for tourists.

Increasing tourism

It will also increase road connectivity to tourists spots in Goa, which in turn would boost the tourism industry in the northern parts of Karnataka”, Mr. Joshi said.

He also said he had already brought the proposal to the notice of Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar during his recent visit to Hubli and appealed to the Chief Minister to urge the Union government to approve the proposal.
