Post-Mandur, Palike's trash woes mount 25.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Villages around some abandoned quarry pits on the outskirts of Bengaluru and a lake near Mandur are the new dumping grounds for the Citys garbage. To keep its promise made to the residents of Mandur, BBMP has stopped sending waste to the landfill since Friday. However, the alternatives are not yet ready. About 1,300 tonnes of waste that used to go to the Mandur landfill are now going to some quarry pits and a lake, sources told Deccan Herald. "It is a matter of grave concern that mixed waste collected in an unscientific manner is going to some quarry pits. It will pollute the groundwater," said an official. Some quarry pits at Kada Agrahara in East Bengaluru and a lake near Mandur are now bearing the brunt. The challenge lies in properly disposing of the 1,300 tonnes of garbage that earlier used to go to the Mandur landfill. On an average, the City produces about 4,000 tonnes of waste per day. Following vehement protests by residents of villages around the landfills, BBMP is now switching to waste ...

Armed gang hacks auto driver to death 25.11.2014 deccanherald.com
An armed gang chased down an auto-rickshaw driver inside a commercial complex in Banashankari before brutally murdering him on Sunday night. Police suspect that Harish Kumar, 32, from AK Colony, was murdered over an old rivalry. Police said Kumar had turned to crime two years ago and would extort money from local residents. On Sunday, he went to a liquor store near Yediyur lake for a drink. A group of young men also arrived at the tavern. After sometime, without any provocation, he picked a fight with them, threatening to hire goons to kill them. The youths, who were equally drunk, didn't take kindy to Kumar's drunken threats and attacked him. Kumar, who was injured in the attack, quickly gained his senses and sprinted to safety. But the youths, who were armed with lethal weapons, gave him a chase. Just then, they saw a man rushing to Kumar's rescue, and hid behind a tree on the roadside. They thought the man was a policeman on night patrol. But he turned out to be a friend of Kumar's who wanted to take ...

Stir halts demolition on Kacharakanahalli lake 23.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Faced with a vehement protest by a strong group of over 1,000 people, the Bengaluru Urban district authorities on Saturday could not carry out demolition drive to reclaim the Kacharakanahalli lake land in Bengaluru North taluk. Spread over 57 acres of land on paper, the lake has shrunk substantially. The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has developed a residential layout on 20 acres of the lake land, while two acres have been lost to temples and other religious structures on the lake bed. The lake has lost all features of a water body and is now a barren land, where many illegal structures and shanties have come up. To kill the lake further, the stormwater drain has been diverted away from the lake, which carries only sewage. People had gathered in great numbers, following rumours that the district authorities planned to demolish all religious structures, especially the Rama Temple, on the lake bed. Social media too played a vital role in spreading the rumour. V Shankar, the deputy commissioner of ...

Resurrecting Kempegowda to right a wrong 21.11.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Bengaluru is bleeding with repeated and brazen assaults by the land mafia even as authorities bear mute witness. A don, a minister and their henchmen try to grab the Kempambudhi lake bed for a casino. They hoodwink a group of conscientious citizens, getting the granddaughter of a respected builder in the group to ink an agreement to build the casino. Their cause is helped by her feud with a "coolie" who has her familys backing. Things come to a head and the bad guys are about to break ground on the lake bed when lo! a sword lands amidst them, spoiling their plan. What follows is annihilation of a goodly portion of Bengaluru's underworld, striking fear in the hearts of the BDA commissioner, the BBMP members and even Kelly Dorjee, who looks more menacing than other recent villain imports. And yes, there's also the meeting between the coolie and Nadaprabhu Kempegowda himself, the Rebel Star looking every inch this city's founder a little past his prime. Kudos to Chinthan and Sukhadhare for the "novel" plot ...
