Water Quality,Typhoid Vs. MCC

February 10, '06

At the risk of being termed repetitive, I have come back to the topic of water qualty supplied to Mysoreans by MCC which I had raised in December 2005.Evasive answers, slipshod responses from MCC has resulted in a situation wherein we have children down with Typhoid today.How long will the authorities continue to hoodwink the people whom they are supposed to serve? Most of the time, MCC gets in to a combative mood whenever anybody tries to question the methods adopted by it to test the water quality.

If the MCC is really serious and has concern about the health of children and have nothing to hide, let them call an independent body, say,experts from Indian Institute of Science( IISc, Bangalore) and ask them to evaluate the samples. If they do this and publish the results, they will do a service to themselves by correcting the process if they are wrong and, above all bring the mater above suspicion, mutual recrimination. Surely Mysore's population, Children especially, deserve better than what's going on!!

If MCC doesn't heed to the above suggestion, does the citizenry have the right to take the matter to C.M. or the Governor to have the uncaring and callous officials removed? Can anybody throw light on this please?Is this possible in our setup? ( I know matter is pending with C.M's office on the earlier petition on the transfer of officials.)
