Inna residents obstruct UPCL's transmission line laying work
Inna, January 7th, 2012: Inna residents obstructed UPCL's Nandikur-Hassan transmission line laying work on Saturday. No compensation had been paid for the the owners of 2-3 houses and acres of agricultural land through which the said line was passing. The contractors did not respond to their request and instead blamed the land owners, it was alleged. While the work was going on in the agricultural land belonging to Laxmi Shedthy and Krishnayya Shedthy, the agitated residents gathered in large number and demanded stoppage of work and intervention from authorities concerned. As no representative from the contractors turned up, the residents got even more angry and released the air from the contractor's machinery vehicle tyres and sent back the their workers.
Inna Grama Panchayat vice president Shankar Amin, past president John Mendonca, Jaya S. Kotian, Raitha Sangha's Prashanth Shetty, Karkala Block Congress vice president Rocky D'Silva, Amarnath Shetty, Prabhakar Inna, M.P. Moidinabba and others were present.
