Encroachments along Ratha Beedhi at Nanjangud cleared
Once the encroachments along the route are cleared, the road is set to be concretised at the cost of Rs 10 crore.
Randeep directed authorities to concretise the Ratha Beedhi, after The Times of India published a report on the residents erecting a noticeboard, wherein they asked the municipal administration and the temple authorities to sell the chariot if they were incapable of fixing the road.
During the Dodda Jathre, five chariots are dragged through the thoroughfares of Nanjangud. Randeep posited that concretization of the road would be a permanent solution, one that would ensure the smooth progress of the chariots.
Under the first phase of the concretisation project, the 60m-stretch from Angadi Beedhi to Patashala Beedhi, and the 1.4km-stretch from BN Road to RP Road will be relaid.
