Palike in a fix over zoning violations 21.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The order of the High Court of Karnataka banning commercial buildings in "residential main area" is flagrantly violated along the 10th Main Water Tank Road and surrounding areas in Indiranagar. Several commercial buildings dot this road, classified as "residential main zone" in the comprehensive development plan of the Bangalore Development Authority. The ward engineers of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in reply to RTI queries by residents, admit that these buildings not only violate zoning regulations, but also lack trade licences. Yet, these buildings are intact and do brisk business. "Imagine a situation where 60-70 people are in an office adjacent to a residential building. Opening the windows of our house would mean that we are constantly under the gaze of these strangers. Our privacy has gone for a toss," says Praveen S, a member of Indiranagar Second Stage Residents' Welfare Association. Pubs and spas, he says, have added more to the nuisance. "God knows what all happens inside ...

Government using power to silence dissent: Rahul Gandhi 12.6.2017 Latest News
Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi used the launch of the commemorative edition of the National Herald as a platform to hit out at the Centre, accusing the Narendra Modi of using its power to silence dissenting voices.

An India where power will simply manufacture the truth."The National Herald, which was founded by the country's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru during the freedom struggle is being ...

Protests that broke out on Wednesday at Mettiganahalli and Bellahalli over the dumping of waste in the quarries by BBMP continued on Thursday. The residents around these villages were agitated that these quarry pits have become a breeding place for mosquitoes and flies and foul odour has made their lives miserable. They feared that leachate from these quarry pits would contaminate their groundwater. Angry protesters blocked the road resulting in hundreds of garbage trucks coming to a halt. The villagers threatened to intensify their agitation if the unscientific dumping is not stopped immediately. Agitators, led by the gram panchayat members, invited freedom fighter H S Doreswamy on Thursday to support their cause.
