The construction is being planned by a group of people and the implications if this is allowed are:
1.    The road is connecting the 80 feet road and the ring road through ST Bed Layout. Any structure which would result in attracting people would result in traffic congestion through these narrow roads.

2.    There are very many temples in this area and to name a few
a. We have one Ganesha Temple a stones throw away
b. Another temple is being built in the corner near the same Ganesha temple.
c. We have another temple within 50 meters inside the S.T Bed layout

3. We also will have all the other issues that would accompany a new temple being built on the road side if it is not addressed immediately.

We have requested MG Nagaraj, Asst. Engineer, and Murugesh Mudaliar, Work Inspector from Ward No. 68 to take appropriate action to ensure that this construction even if it is a small structure to be stalled in the very beginning so that we do not face any major issues if it is allowed to be built.

We also forwarded this request to our MLA, Ramalinga Reddy so that he could also take necessary action in this regard.
