Members of ‘I Change Indiranagar’, a federation of eight resident welfare associations in Indiranagar, have filed a complaint against Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad and other senior BBMP officials with Lokayukta.

The complaint points out that the officials failed to implement zonal regulations in Indiranagar and blatantly allowed commercial establishments to come up in residential areas.

Though the Karnataka High Court ordered BBMP to shut down illegal commercial establishments, the civic body is slow in taking action.

For instance, Sneha Nandihal, a resident of the locality had filed a petition more than a year and a half ago, but no action has been taken yet.

“BBMP accepted that there are violations (of zonal regulations) in the locality and they will take action, but the issue has not been resolved,” she said.

Meanwhile, N Manjunath Prasad refused to comment on the issue without seeing the complaint.
