Bengaluru: Chief Min­is­ter H D Ku­maraswamy will launch the Kodagu re­build­ing work on De­cem­ber 8. A de­ci­sion in this re­gard has been taken by the Kodagu district ad­min­is­tra­tion and the CM’s Of­fice (CMO). Ac­cord­ing to the sources at the CMO, on De­cem­ber 8, the CM will lay the foun­da­tion stones for the con­struc­tion of new houses, for those who lost their prop­er­ties and homes, on the 120 acres of land bought by the district ad­min­is­tra­tion for this pur­pose. “In all, 840 houses will be built in phase 1. Ev­ery house will be built at an es­ti­mated cost of Rs 9.85 Lakh. These houses will have RCC roofs and two bed­rooms,” said of­fi­cials.

It may be re­called that the Kodagu district faced the worst ever flood and land­slides on Au­gust 14, 15, and 16, wherein hun­dreds of houses and cof­fee plan­ta­tions were de­stroyed, caus­ing huge loss. Around 30,000 peo­ple were dis­placed while the death toll was 30. The bod­ies of two per­sons are yet to be re­cov­ered.
