BPAC survey reveals what is expected of BBMP

The Bangalore Political Action Committee (BPAC) announced the results of a survey of 10,000 citizens – conducted to understand what is expected of the BBMP – on Tuesday.

The survey was conducted prior to the BBMP elections. CEO of BPAC, Revathy Ashok said: “Across 198 wards, citizens unanimously felt that roads, waste management, lakes, parks and bus shelters were the top five issues that the BBMP must address.

The survey serves as a good starting point for councillors to set priorities for their respective wards.” The committee also facilitated a dialogue, ‘Bengaluru Rising’, on Tuesday, wherein Mayor B N Manjunatha Reddy, BBMP Commissioner Kumar Naik and MLAs among other elected representatives took part. Several Residents’ Welfare Associations (RWAs) and citizen groups interacted to find solutions to various issues plaguing the city.

Vice President of BPAC T V Mohandas Pai, pointed out that the City accounts for 60 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the State and has the highest per capita income among all the metros. He said: “For Karnataka to prosper, the City must also prosper. There is a  need for people-centric governance.”

Mayor Manjunatha Reddy, who shared his action plan, said his focus would be to increase revenue and improve service delivery in all the areas identified in the survey. Palike Commissioner Kumar Nayak said the civic agency is determined to implement new contracts for waste collection. He also committed that he would work closely with the BWSSB and citizens to resolve lake and sewage pollution.

BPAC is a citizen’s group that aims to improve governance and enhance the quality of life of every citizen through surveys, citizen awareness programmes and related activities.
