The Aam Aadmi Party held a protest alleging that the 40% commission of the state BJP government was responsible for the collapse of the Vajpayee Stadium gallery in H S R layout.
Leading the protest, Bengaluru A A P President Mohan Dasari said, “The gallery roof has collapsed barely two months after getting inaugurated by CM Basavaraj Bommai. This is an example of the 40% commission corruption of the B J P government and local MLA Sathish Reddy. We condemn the hooliganism shown by B J P workers against A A P workers who visited the place to expose the poor construction work. We will remove B J P from power which is corrupt as well as a hooligan party.”
“The work at Vajpayee Stadium has been done at a cost of Rs 4 crore which has to be thoroughly investigated. Public works department should investigate this and strict action should be taken against the contractors, officials and representatives who are part of this corruption. We cannot keep quiet looking at people’s money being misused by corrupt people resulting in poor construction of public assets,” Mohan Dasari added.
Bommanahalli Constituency A A P in-charge Seetharam Gundappa said, “Member of Parliament Tejasvi Surya, along with B J P workers, had created ruckus in front of Delhi CM residence.They had also sent unruly party workers to A A P state office as well. If he has guts, let him come to Vajpayee stadium which has been subjected to 40% commission corruption and talk about the poor construction work of the stadium which is in his own constituency.”
Later, the Joint Commissioner received the complaint demanding the probe against poor construction.
A A P leaers such as Jagadish Chandra, Yogitha Reddy, Pallavi Chidambaram, Nagabhushana Reddy, Manjunatha Swamy, Kalai, Firoz Khan, Veena Rao, Sathish Gowda and others were present in the protest.
