Not quite the garden city: Bengaluru rains exposed infrastructure woes, civic apathy 18.12.2017 Karnataka
Yelenahalli_Road_potholes_citizenmatters.jpg Representative image By Bhavana Akella The image of Bengaluru as a garden city and the country's technology hub was dented when record rainfall this year exposed not only its infrastructure woes but also the apathy of its municipal agencies in coping with its growing needs. The cosmopolitan city of 10 million people has witnessed phenomenal growth over the years, thanks to a thriving multi-billion-dollar global IT services industry. However, lack of proportionate investment in basic amenities like stormwater drains, roads and public utilities has made it a victim of its own success. Even as the monsoon pounded the city with nearly 667mm of rainfall as opposed to the average 460 mm from June to October, its denizens faced a harrowing time with its fallout -- low-lying areas were inundated, and roads, colonies and houses were flooded in the hundreds, as outdated and choked drains overflowed and the civic machinery was found wanting. "Though the city has been ...

City to deploy smaller firefighting vehicles 17.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
After the plans of creating eight helipads to airlift patients comes one more from the BBMP to rapidly put out fires in the city. The civic body has decided to deploy Quick Response Vehicles (QRVs) in all wards to instantly snuff out blazes. The kind of vehicles pressed into service would range from pickup trucks to Tempo Travellers, Jeeps or bikes that could haul water tanks of different capacities and jet pressure to traverse through narrow lanes and heavy traffic. Besides floating a tender to procure the vehicles, the Karnataka State Fire and Emergency Services Department has written to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike asking for land to set up the fire stations. "We currently have just 20 QRVs in the existing fire stations," N R Markandeya, deputy director of Fire and Emergency Services, informed DH. "Since the city is growing rapidly, we need more QRVs." Mayor R Sampath Raj told this newspaper that the need for quick and nimble fleet of fire engines was growing due to increasingly dense ...

Without clear vision, public bicycle sharing can't be sustained: operators 17.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The governments move to promote public bicycle sharing system has started a chicken-egg situation as some of the biggest players in the PBS market debated whether such a programme will be sustainable with limited infrastructure and policy support. The Directorate of Urban Land Transport (DULT), transport experts and operators running successful PBS systems in other countries discussed some of the challenges in the implementation of the PBS in the city. About seven operators said a successful PBS needed dedicated infrastructure to ensure the safety of people who chose bicycle over motorised transport. "Instead of having conventional government tenders which award certain funding to PBS operators, we believe the government should channel the investment into better cycling and road infrastructure as a lasting contribution to cities and cyclists," said Dexter Sim, expansion manager of Beijing-based ofo. Another operator said global investors interest depended on the seriousness of the government. "We are ...

"Social activist Gauri Lankesh was killed. BJP workers Rudresh Goudar and Paresh Mesta were killed. What is the government doing here? No concrete action was taken to bring the culprits to book," he said at the BJPs Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivarthana Yatra at Murugeshpalya, off Old Airport Road, on Sunday. Bengaluru is the IT capital of the country, but the Congress government has failed to ensure peoples safety, he added.

The BJP leader also accused the Siddaramaiah government of "dividing society on caste and communal lines" and took objection to the celebration of Tipu Sultans birth anniversary.
