Now, Bellandur gets exclusive FB page

Bellandur Lake.

Residents associated with the Bellandur Lake have created a Facebook page to engage with people and keep them abreast of events and projects.

On Thursday, the Bellandur Lake Development Group and Citizen Watch Group created the Save Bellandur Kere page to provide a timeline of all events, give visitors a gist of what happened so far and the current activity at the lake.

Sonali Singh, a member of the Citizen Watch Group, said having an information platform was considered the best thing as the lake is a vital waterbody in the city.

She said though the page is public, posting of information has been restricted. Right now, only three people have been authorised to write and post information on the page. Sonali also said the information on the page will be shared with the Bangalore Development Authority and the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike commissioners.

While citizen-made Facebook pages exist for the Puttenahalli and Madiwala Lakes, besides a page for Save Bengaluru Lakes, adding Bellandur to the list is considered important,  especially since the lake has garnered global attention.
