Blame game eclipses civic issues in Patiala 16.12.2017 The Tribune
With Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh staying away from campaigning on his home turf, his wife Preneet Kaur and Cabinet Minister Brahm Mohindra have been busy wooing voters. Both are assuring the electorate that all promises made by the Congress ahead of the Vidhan Sabha polls would be fulfilled, besides overall development of the district. Ex-minister Surjit Singh Rakhra has been holding the fort for the SAD, while another former minister Daljit Singh Cheema and BJP leaders Vijay Sampla, Prabhat Jha and Rajinder Bhandari have visited Patiala to canvass for party candidates. From the AAP camp, Bhagwant Mann spared a day for party candidates.

The SAD-BJP alliance has accused the Congress of misusing police to threaten its candidates and failing to fulfil promises after forming the government. AAP ...

STP battle leaves officials in a bind 15.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Confusion reigns among officials a day after the government said it would relax rules making sewage treatment plants compulsory for apartment complexes. Minister K J George announced the suspension of the penalty clause on Thursday, but officials said they would have to follow contrary instructions from the National Green Tribunal. George, who handles the Bengaluru development and town planning portfolios, said contentious rules on STPs would be amended soon, and the BBMP would pass a resolution adopting them. Following a hue and cry over retrospective implementation of the STP rule, George said it would only be implemented prospectively. Older apartments, represented by the Bangalore Apartments Federation (BAF), had taken to the streets to oppose mandatory STPs for them. Apartment complexes with 20 houses or less, which have already linked their sewers to underground drainage, are exempted from installing compulsory STPs, George said. About 50+ blocks Reiterating what DH reported on December 14, BWSSB ...

Bhendi Bazaar: A model makeover 15.12.2017 DNA: Opinion
Bohri Mohalla is a nugget of heritage and culture nestled in the crowded market area of Bhendi Bazaar. If you have ever visited this neighbourhood and not devoured the succulent kebabs and tikkas of Haji Tikka Corner, your trip to this part of the city would be considered incomplete.

Bhendi Bazaar, spread over a 16.5-acre land comprising more than 250 buildings, is undergoing one of the biggest redevelopment projects in India. The project which is being carried out by Saifee Burhani Upliftment Trust (SBUT) has divided Bhendi Bazaar in nine clusters.

No sewage treatment plants for old apartments in Bengaluru 15.12.2017
BENGALURU: In a move which could provide relief to thousands of flat dwellers, the BWSSB on Thursday withdrew its retrospective rule for installation of sewage treatment plant (STP) in old apartment complexes. BWSSB had initially made it mandatory to install STPs in apartment complexes with 20 or more flats. Following an uproar, it amended the rule in April and increased it to 50 or more flats. However those residing in older apartment complexes opposed the retrospective rule citing lack of space and the huge costs involved. They wanted the BWSSB to drop the rule. The issue also became the main topic for discussion at the special council meet at the BBMP recently with corporators cutting across party lines demanding water board to drop this retrospective rule. BBMP Mayor Sampath Raj too said that any rule should not burden citizens. In a meeting chaired by Bengaluru Development Minister K. J. George and Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy, the water board suspended the retrospective rule with immediate ...
