Lok Adalat takes issue with roadwidening panel 20.11.2008 Citizen Matters

In a Lok Adalat hearing on 19th November at the High Court of Karnataka, Justice K L Manjunath pointedly asked Yellapa Reddy, chairman of the committee overseeing Bengaluru’s roadwidening project to listen to the petitioners complaints on widespread tree cutting.

As reported earlier in Citizen Matters, a writ petition was filed by NGOs Environment Support Group, CIVIC and the green network Hasiru Usiru a few months ago, against the tree cutting undertaken by…

Citizens walk for green Bangalore 12.11.2008 Citizen Matters

For sometime now, Hasiru Usiru, a group of individuals and NG0's, has been concerned at the way in which BBMP is going about addressing Bangalore's traffic congestion. At issue has been the manner in which the ‘Empowered Committee For Sustainable Development of Bangalore’ has been working and it's compliance with the Town and Country Planning Act. (See earlier article.)

In the meantime, on the premise of permissions granted by the comittee, the BBMP has been going ahead with indiscriminate tree-felling in the name of road-widening. Hasiru Usiru (HU) members have been trying to prove that alternative solutions exist, that will not…

Hasiru-Usiru and BBMP clash over roadwidening 5.11.2008 Citizen Matters

Hasiru Usiru (HU), a group of citizens concerned on green issues at Bangalore, has been trying to get the BBMP to involve its nominated members to be part of the decision-making process. This, especially after the High Court of Karnataka handed down a decision to the effect that BBMP should not take any developmental steps without clearance from an empowered committee which was setup as part of a litigation initiated by Hasiru Usiru.

So far, its efforts have been fruitless, and HU members have been deeply concerned to see the ongoing felling of trees for widening several roads in the…

Hospital waste dumped off Kanakapura Road 4.11.2008 Citizen Matters

It was late on November 3nd afternoon when five men worked by the side of a lonely stretch of road in the as yet un-named land between Anjanapura and Kanakapura Road. The barefooted men silently hoed and shovelled the last dregs of a waste heap, shoving the plastic and other indistinct matter into a truck parked nearby, where one of the men stood next to the waste. At first glance, it appeared to be one of the many dumps of domestic waste one often sees on empty plots, full of plastic bags.

In fact, it was…
