Dramatic moments at anganwadi workers' protest 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The protest by anganwadi workers continued on Wednesday with dramatic moments as nine of the agitating workers suffered health problems. Eight protesters were rushed to KCGeneral Hospital at Malleswaram. The police had a hard time convincing a worker to go to the hospital. Kavita, a 28-year-old anganwadi worker from Shiraguppa, Ballari, was carried by the police for treatment. The doctors at the hospital said the nine agitators were treated as outpatients. Several philanthropists and NGOs brought food, fruits and water for the protesters who rejected them stating that they do not want to be dependent on anyone. Food packets returned "We have not come here to beg. If you want to help us, sit with us on dharna. Please do not distribute food here. We dont need food.

Varthur lake is frothing all the time, with citizens saying it becomes news only when someone puts up a picture on social media. But since Wednesday, the scene has been particularly bad, with the state highway towards Whitefield being enveloped by flying foam. On Tuesday, the Bangalore Development (BDA) had begun putting up a mesh.

He ordered them to show results within a week. "The mesh will come up around the waste-weir area of Varthur lake, from where the froth spills onto the road. Work began on Wednesday and will be completed within a week," said Veda Murthy, Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) assistant executive engineer. BBMP officials are saying they will clear the debris and garbage dumped in the channels connecting to the lake from Thursday.

After getting positive response to its vertical garden on a pier of the Electronics City flyover, Bengaluru-based nonprofit SayTrees now plans to replicate the same on more than 250 piers of the elevated tollway. "The Electronics City flyover plan is in the final stages. We are waiting for sponsors. Our big dream is to cover the piers of all the flyovers in the city.

He said the vertical garden might look simple but involved many technical details like the safety of piers, pots and saplings. "The vertical garden on one pier has more than 3,500 saplings of 10 varieties. We have carefully chosen these plants to ensure they thrive in organic farming," he said. On the vertical garden on a Metro pier, Agrahari said they did not use Hydroponics but opted for organic method following advice by Vani Murthy, who is known for spreading awareness on turning garbage into compost.

BBMP revenue generation falls short of budget target 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Even as the Bruhat Bengaluru MahanagaraPalike is gearing up to present its budget on March 25, it has come out that the local body has been able to implement only 40% of its previous budget proposals. The BBMP had presented a budget with revised estimates of Rs 9,353.1 crore and had expected receipts of Rs 9,351.03 crore for 2016-17. However, the resource mobilisation so far is claimed to be about Rs 6,000 crore, which includes Rs 3,800 crore received from the state government. The budget implementation report will be released only on the day budget for next fiscal year is tabled. However, Palike officials and corporators say that the realisation of the budget in terms of revenue generation and implementation of public works is no different from those of previous years. "Many welfare schemes have not yet started except for the midday meal for pourakarmikas. The resource mobilisation is equally poor," pointed out Padmanabha Reddy (BJP), leader of the Opposition in the BBMP Council. He said that the state ...

Panel moots minimum fare for app-based cabs 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The committee set up by the Transport department to fix minimum fare for app-based cab aggregators has submitted its report to the government, recommending a fare of Rs 10 per kilometre (km)and Rs 12 per km for small cars and sedans, respectively. Joint Commissioner for Transport J Gnanendra said the fare is the amount that the aggregators must pay to the drivers. "Once the government accepts the report and passes an order, the aggregators can't pay less than that," he said. The senior official said the committee took several parameters into account while arriving at the figures in a scientific way. Sources said the fares of cabs like Ola and Uber may see a marginal increase. "We already have base prices which almost correspond to the same fare index. The drivers, however, will get more money per kilometre," a source said. The source, however, said that the customers who ride beyond 10 km may end up paying more in the coming days. However, drivers who have been seeking a raise in earnings and protested ...
