The BJP showed its election preparedness for the upcoming BBMP elections by inaugurating some ambitious projects in Padmanabhanagar, which also houses the residences of former Prime Minister and JD-S supremo H D Deve Gowda.

He laid the foundation stone for a flyover at Kittur Rani Chennamma Circle, along the Ring Road axis with a budget of Rs 32.3 crores. He also initiated the Dorekere Lake and Uttarahalli Lake restoration work at an estimated cost of Rs 10 crores.

Green ambassadors

Transport Minister and Padmanabhanagar MLA R Ashok, BWSSB Minister Katta Subramanya Naidu, MLAs M Krishnappa, M Srinivas, Ravi Subramanya and BBMP Commissioner Bharat Lal Meena were present on the occassion. Later, addressing a gathering at a playground near the DG Nursing Home at Padmanabhanagar, he said that KSRTC has been given the best transport corporation award. He also said that the water supply and sewerage system in Bangalore was the best in the country.

Moreover, the Metro Rail would be operationalised from 2010.  Lake conservation is another important task and funds will be allocated for the conservation of all the 160 lakes in the city, he added.
