Corporators promise moon for Bangaloreans

Corporators promise moon for Bangaloreans

If some of these promised dream projects come true, Bangalore might just become another Singapore. Yet there is a glitch. None of the women corporators are either allowed to speak to unknown men including media persons. Also, they don’t want to say anything without consulting their husbands about the problems their wards face or what their dream project are for their wards.

Congress corporator from Jalahalli N Narayanaswamy says, apart from addressing the common problems of water, electricity and road, he would like to see a 50-bed government maternity hospital constructed. He also wants to have a  huge park in HMT’s land with the permission of the HMT management.

Although Shaheen Taz, the corporator from Kadugondanahalli ward, was ‘unavailable,’ her husband Chhotu Qureshi was there to answer her calls.
The Corporator-Pathi said he plans to have a pump house to solve the water crisis. Besides his area lacks a good high school and a government college.
He also promised to start soon a 35-bed hospital.

Indira, a Congress corporator from Byatarayanapura ward says that her family is doing social service for the last 30 years, which bore fruit at last in the form of her victory in the BBMP polls.

“We have a dream of a big hospital at Amruth Nagar. The BBMP has two acres of land here. We will construct a state-of-the-art hospital here unlike any other government hospital,” said Indira’s brother.

Another corporator pathi Zafarullah Sharief (represented by his wife Noorjan Sharief of Congress from Kushal Nagar), says that there is water crisis in the area but otherwise the ward is having all basic amenities, which needs maintenance. Yet he wants proper development of a playground in his ward.

Former mayor K Chandrashekhar said he has some major dreams but he would like to implement them instead of making them public.

Feeling indebted to his Muslim voters the husband of Okalipuram ward corporator Queen Elizabeth, Chakravarthy wants to build a marriage hall for the minorities in the area.
“Many marriage hall owners avoid renting out their buildings to the minorities because they cook non-vegetarian items. Hence getting a marriage hall is a big challenge for the  Muslims. So I would like to construct one for them.”
The BJP corporator from Puttenahalli, L Ramesh, wants a wide network of cameras on each and every road of his ward which should be connected to the nearby police station.
“Residents of my area are fed-up with the anti-social elements. So we want their activities be recorded on a daily basis. This will get rid of the problems,” said Ramesh.
His next dream is to develop Puttenahalli and Sarakki lake with beautiful garden all around it.

Another BJP corporator from Uttarahalli, Ramesh Raju has a dream of turning the Subramanyapura lake into another Sankey Tank. “We will develop it as a model lake,” he said.
