Reported at DH event, this mess is gone now

Seized vehicles that doubled up as a garbage dump near the Sanjaynagar police station were cleared after the matter was brought to the notice of DyCM G Parameshwara at the ‘DH & Citizens for Civic Amenities’ event on Saturday.

After a resident complained about seized vehicles turning into a garbage dump at Sanjaynagar at the ‘DH Citizen for Civic Amenities’ event held on Saturday, Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara tweeted on Monday that action has been taken with regard to the dumping black spot.

At the event, a senior citizen had brought the matter to the notice of the minister who also holds the city development portfolio.

“More than six vehicles seized by the Sanjaynagar police are parked on the roadside for the last two years in Ward Number 19, becoming a garbage dumping spot.

The authorities have not taken any action,” the resident had complained to Parameshwara.

Parameshwara, who had noted down the issue, tweeted on Monday, “At @DeccanHerald’s event on garbage management, I was informed about seized vehicles becoming a garbage dump in Sanjaynagar by a resident.

The area has been cleared. With this, I reiterate that your concerns are heard & will be addressed. #CleanUpBengaluru”

Twitterati reacts

In response, many Twitter users posted about similar problems in other areas,
requesting the minister to intervene.

Praveen Koti (Praveen_koti) said, “This is the story of every police station in the city. Our police force works amidst a garbage of vehicles dumped since decades. The reasons could be many, accident, theft, unattended, litigation etc., but the result is the same. Vehicles become scrap and negative work environment.”

Another user, venugopal‏ (@ksvenu247) said, “There are many piled up on footpaths near police stations. Example: Madiwala, Ramaiah Hospital, St John’s Road.”
