DH-PV 'Citizens for Change' event in Malleswaram today

Taking forward the ‘Citizens for Change’ initiative that was started ahead of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) elections, Deccan Herald and Prajavani have been arranging interactive sessions between residents/Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) and elected representatives in all the Assembly constituencies of the City.

One such session in the series will be held in the Malleswaram Assembly constituency on Saturday. Ahead of the BBMP elections that were held on August 22, 2015, Deccan Herald and Prajavani had asked residents to pose their questions on the many civic problems they face including drinking water shortage, garbage disposal, cleanliness, bad roads and footpaths, streetlights, road safety, stray dog/cattle menace, parks and lakes, to the candidates contesting from their respective wards.

Many RWAs/residents responded, getting signed undertakings from the candidates that they would address the listed grievances once elected. It is now time for the residents of the Malleswaram Assembly constituency to directly connect with their corporators, many of whom are first-time corporators.

Interactive session

The interactive session will provide residents an opportunity to know and partner with their corporator and collectively develop their ward and build a better Bengaluru.

Malleswaram MLA Dr C N Ashwath Narayan will be present at the interactive session, along with the corporators representing the seven wards in the constituency — Aramanenagar, Mathikere, Malleswaram, Rajmahal Nagar, Kadumalleshwara, Subramanyanagar and Gaythrinagar. Officials from the BBMP and other government departments will also be present.

RWAs/residents can email the top 10 problems/grievances related to their wards to dhpvcitizensforchange@deccanherald.co.in ahead of the session.For clarifications/details, contact: Chandrashekar G G (9448528998) or Prathap E L (9845171343).
