CM goes visiting new BBMP areas

Yeddyurappa promises to improve infrastructure in newly included areas

Yes, we are talking about bad roads, frequent power cuts, irregular water supply and lack of good connectivity to the Central Business Districts (CBD), to name a few. For voters of the newly added constituencies, it was a pleasant surprise to see the chief minister arrive for campaigning. Though movement of vehicular traffic was hit, as vehicles belonging to BJP leaders blocked movement of vehicles along the route taken by Yeddyurappa.

“Drinking water supply and frequent power cuts have dogged our area for the last one year. Roads also need immediate attention,” said Pushpalatha, who manages a grocery store at Sunkadakatte.

“It is local problems that affect us the most. After being brought into the limits of BBMP, basic infrastructure at Mahadevapura is not as per our expectations,” observed Nage Gowda, a landlord in Mahadevapura.

On his part, the chief minister promised better development and infrastructure, even as he braved the afternoon sun. As BJP supporters welcomed the chief minister’s convoy with firecrackers and cheers, as he campaigned for BJP candidates in more than nine constituencies. The campaign gathered momentum as the motorcade waded its way through the dusty bylanes of Sanjeevini Nagar at Sunkadakatte and passed along Peenya and Dasarahalli.

Accompanied by ministers Katta Subramanya Naidu, Aravind Limbavali and Bangalore North Member of Parliament D B Chandre Gowda and the candidates of respective wards, the chief minister called on voters to exercise their franchise in favour of BJP candidates, if they wished better development in areas that was once part of the erstwhile city municipal councils.

“The City of Kempegowda was ruled for long by the Congress, but where was the development” asked Yeddyurappa as he took a jibe at the opposition and added, “Infrastructure has seen rapid improvement in the City after the BJP government was sworn in. The government has accorded priority to have a Metro and Mono rail projects implement in the City. By December this year, Phase-1 of the Metro will be commissioned”
Promising voters that drinking water woes will be a thing of the past the chief minister who stood atop a open mini-van decked with BJP flags and banners said, “By 2012 we propose to bring clean drinking water at your doorsteps. People will also get 24 hours of uninterrupted power supply. A BJP chief minister, a member of parliament from BJP, the mayor and deputy mayor should also be from BJP. This will accelerate development.”

The chief minister also toured Byatarayanapura, Hebbal, C V Raman Nagar and
Mahadevapura constituencies, chanting the infrastructure mantra, hoping that voters will win the party the maximum number of seats.
