'Will work to get SC  tag for Madiwalas'
The Madiwala flyover has been named the Mahasharana Madiwala Maachideva flyover. During the naming ceremony organised by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Saturday, Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy said he will urge Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to include Madiwala community in the list of the Scheduled Castes.
    
Mayor G Padmavathi said Rs 19 crore had been earmarked in the state budget for development of the community. “However, the amount was not utilised. The community should demand that the government utilise the budgetary allocation and ensure it is used for the uplift of the community.” She said she had recently visited dhobi ghats on Queen’s Road, Ashoknagar, Malleswaram and other places and released Rs 35 lakh for upgrading them from the Mayor’s fund.
