RBI Layout residents oppose Indira Canteen

RBI Layout residents oppose Indira Canteen
Despite rain, about 50 residents of RBI Layout in JP Nagar 7th Phase staged a protest on Wednesday opposing construction of Indira canteen on their playground.

BBMP is planning to construct Indira canteen on a playground situated near the Capital School in RBI Layout.

Belur Laxmi Narayana, a local resident said “We are not opposing the poor-friendly concept Indira canteen, but we have an objection to the choice of the location. This is the only place in the locality where children can play and senior citizens come for daily walks and physical exercise.” The middle class people of this locality do not depend on the Indira canteen, it is better if the BBMP constructs a canteen in a locality where people genuinely need it, he added.

The residents will hold a protest march from the playground to BBMP office in RBI Layout on Thursday 10 am.
