People's problems

Nov 18, 2012:

Introduce city bus service

There are no direct BMTC services from Chennammanakere Achchukattu to JP Nagar, Jayanagar and Yeshwantpur. This has been causing a lot of inconvenience to people. The residents have to catch the bus near Deve Gowda petrol bunk after walking nearly a kilometre. With the opening of the Kadirenahalli underpass, it is easy to ply buses to Jayanagar via JP Nagar.

There is no city service from New Bank Colony, Konanakunte to Jayanagar 4th Block and Majestic. A majority of the students from the area are dependent on BMTC buses which, however, do not stop once they spot students waiting for the buses. None of the buses ply regularly from this locality. Large number of students and common people who travel to 4th Block and Majestic everyday are facing hardship due to lack of city service. The BMTC is requested to introduce regular and new routes on the routes.

Delay in providing water supply


The residents of Doctor's Colony, Punjab National Bank Colony and Ayyappanagar of Konanakunte have not yet been connected with Cauvery water supply. The residents responded to the campaign launched by the BWSSB to secure water connection in seven days. However, my two letters to the chairperson and PRO of the Board have not been replied and not steps taken in this regard.  The water supply from the borewells is insufficient and in some areas the water is being mixed with drianage. The officials need to take immediate steps.

Belated telephone bills

The staff of the BSNL office on the IIM Campus send telephone bills close to the last date for payment. The bills are posted on 26th or 27th as revealed by the postal seal and they reach the customers on 29th. When inquired, Chennaveeraiah, a staff at the office threatens the customers. The authorities concerned should issue suitable instructions to the staff in charge.

School vicinity made dump yard

aThe 19th ‘D’ Main Road behind the Vidyavardhaka Sangha School in ‘N’ Block of Rajajinagar is filled with filth and garbage.

While the BBMP has made garbage segregation mandatory, the residents here have found it convenient to dump garbage behind the compound wall of the school during night.  Furthermore, several private ambulances are parked on the road and drivers wash their vehicles in the night, littering the stretch. Schoolchildren sit at the same place before the gates are opened to the school. The compound wall is also serving as urinal for miscreants.

The irresponsible acts have led to foul smell and mosquito menace in the area. The pourakarmikas do not lift garbage and school authorities have turned a deaf ear. Will the authorities concerned take some steps?

Garbage pile up near Palike office


The division office of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike in JC Nagar has become an eyesore. A huge pile of garbage in front of the office attracts stray animals in large numbers all through the day.

The heap covers nearly half the stretch of the road obstructing traffic. With dengue on the rage, this carelessness may take a huge toll on the health of the residents. It is an irony that the BBMP, supposed to be caretaker of the City is allowing garbage dumping near its office.

Drainage turning public urinal

The drainage at the junction of 50 Feet Road and 4th Cross in Kempegowda Layout,  the one located between Kathriguppe branch of State Bank of Mysore and Sri Chamundeshwari temple have not been covered with stone slabs.

People throw all sorts of garbage - plastic covers, coconut shell, paper etc thus clogging the drains. The open drains have also turned out to be a public urinal. Further, Kempegowda Layout is emerging as a commercial hub and two auto stands are located in a radius of 50 meters. People use the drainage junction as a urinal since public toilets have not been constructed in the area. Two parks - one near the water tank and another opposite Chamundeshwari temple  - are ideal places to construct public toilets.

The authorities concerned are requested to cover the open drainage with stone slab and construct public toilets.
