Apartment dwellers oppose BWSSB's new order on STPs 30.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Dwellers in small apartment are up in arms against Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for making Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) and dual piping system mandatory. They refuse to follow new rules despite the Board setting a December 31, 2017-deadline. Members of Bangalore Apartments' Federation (BAF) said that it is practically impossible for the existing apartments having 50 and more residential units to set up STPs. A final notification was issued by BWSSB asking owners or the occupiers of apartments, commercial establishments and educational institutions to set up STP and dual piping system on April 21, 2017. BAF which claims to have support of more than 250 apartment associations has decided against the new rule in every possible way. "Vested interests are behind this new norm. More than a lakh dwellers are against it. We want to know how setting up STP will help when the treated sewage is finally going to end in SWDs and polluted lakes. The move is illogical," said general secretary, ...

'Drop pourakarmikas' Singapore trip plan, provide facilities instead' 29.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka State Pourakarmikas' Association has termed the state governments plan to send 1,000 pourakarmikas to Singapore a sheer waste of money and has asked the government to instead focus on regularising contract workers. Association president A Jayram told DH that they plan to write to the government asking it to withdraw its plan. "Instead, use the same funds to provide better facilities to pourakarmikas,'' he said. He said, "The CM announced revision of pourakarmikas' wages many months ago. It, however, has not been implemented even in a single BBMP ward. Few pourakarmikas understand English. What is the use of sending them there when they are not treated properly here?" The association said most of the pourakarmikas are still not provided basic facilities like masks, brooms and rest rooms. The government plans to send 1,000 pourakarmikas from all corporations in the state. BBMP plans to send one pourakarmika from each of the 198 wards to make them learn civic responsibilities.

On April 27, a group of volunteers noticed trucks streaming out of Brigade Tech Garden in Brookefields Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and headed for the Varthur lakebed near Vibgyor High. "We called the police who swung into action and seized five to six trucks the same day. A cursory examination showed that the samples of soil taken from Brigade Tech Garden and the lakebed were the same," said a volunteer, who would not be quoted. The volunteers have been keeping a close watch ever since a local resident filmed earthmovers dumping soil in the Varthur lakebed recently. The video spurred the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), the custodian of Varthur lake, to file a police complaint. Residents said the police were yet to make arrests. According to residents, trucks have been dumping soil in the lakebed for several months now but government agencies ...
