Garbage crisis robbing me of sleep: Governor

Bangalore, Nov 16, 2012, DHNS :

Governor H R Bhardwaj has said that he has lost his sleep over the garbage crisis gripping the City.

“Somes times I cannot sleep when I think of the filth in the City. There is a government and a municipality. They are paid to work and find a solution to the problem. But I do not see any progress,” governor told mediapersons on the sidelines of an event here on Friday.

The governor noted that corruption had become the order of the day in Karnataka since people of the State were tolerating the scourge.

He said the people of the State have a right to demand good administration.

BU bifurcation

Referring to the proposal for bifurcation of the Bangalore University, the governor said he would arrive at a decision only after assessing the ramifications of such a decision, which he can do only after the government sends the proposal. “My priority is to appoint a new vice chancellor first,” he said.

Bhardwaj said Santosh Hegde had done a good job as a Lokayukta and search was on to fill the post with a person of his calibre.

Ministers absent

Speaking at the Universal Children’s Day celebration organised by Women and Child Development department, the governor expressed his displeasure over the absence of many ministers who were scheduled to attend the function.

“I have always come on time to all the events that I agreed to participate in. But here there is no respect for the Head of the State,” he lamented.  

Hoysala and Keladi Chennamma bravery awards were conferred on children who saved lives by their courage and presence of mind. Akshay Chavan, Suhail K M, S S Manoj, Deepak Tavane and Nayana Y C were honoured with the award.
