An illegal and unauthorised construction of a temple in a civic amenities (CA) site in JP Nagar has started.

The CA site is located between 30th A Main Road and 17th A cross road. The Supreme Court mandates that no temple construction should be allowed on a CA site and this is a clear violation of Supreme Court rule.

This has been brought to the notice of  MLA B Vijaya Kumar and the Joint Commissioner (South), BBMP Hemachandra. They have promised to look into the matter at the earliest.

It will be beneficial for the residents of the locality if the authorities concerned take an immediate action and stop the illegal construction. A Hopcoms and a Nandini outlet can be built on this site as there are no such facilities in the area.
