‘People made to run from one office to another

“Officials in the taluk do not have even five minutes to spare for poor people who go all the way to their office. Thousands of people have been running from one government office to another for the last 20 to 25 years but still do not have records they need,” said Yadav Shetty, district secretary of the Karnataka Prantha Raitha Sangha (KPRS) here on Monday.

He was addressing a protest meet in front of the Deputy Commissioner's office. Mr. Shetty demanded the district administration to take up applications related to housing sites, title deeds and regularisation with immediate effect.

The sangha demanded that people who had no houses should be given housing sites by the Government. The others who were living on government land and on plots of five cents did not possess title deeds. Mr. Shetty said that people who had applied for the hakkupatra years ago were yet to receive it.

They demanded regularisation of cultivation by farmers.
