Toxic froth from lake recedes, rain-hit areas recovering 18.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The citys famous Bellandur lake continued to spew toxic froth today, but it is reducing because of receding rains. After being pounded by a record-breaking downpour early this week, the city is on the road to recovery. "The lake still continues to spew toxic froth. Continues to fly, though it is not that nightmarish as it was during the torrential rainfall four days back. "It is reducing because of receding rains," Lakes Conservation Expert and resident of the area, Shalini Batra Sahni told PTI, here today. Incessant rains on August 14 and 15 had resulted in the increase of the lakes water levels and the formation of toxic froth. The rains had aggravated the situation with thick froth spilling on to the road nearby causing inconvenience to commuters driving along the stretch. "This, however, is not the scene today," she said. Sahni expressed fear about residents living around the lake developing disease by coming in contact with toxic froth flying around. After the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had ...

Sewage water seeps into houses in Dollar Colony 17.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Three storm water drains (SWD) had breached leading the sewage water to seep into the houses near Bannerghatta Road in Dollars Colony. The house of former BBMP commissioner Siddaiah was also not deprived of this menace. After the heavy rainfall on Monday midnight, the breach in the storm water drain had led to the overflow of the sewage water causing waterlogging in this posh colony. Narayan N, a local resident, said, " The encroachment of Vaishnavi Apartment on the SWD has led to this menace. About 20-30 houses in the street have been affected. It is a risk to peoples health." Narayan also charged that none of the BBMP officials responded to the issue despite several complaints. However, Prakash, SWD, Dollars Colony, BBMP, said that they had constructed the SWD on the next day itself. "We have built the SWD on the very next day of the rain.

Day 1 customers give canteen the thumbs up 16.8.2017 deccanherald.com
More than 6,000 people thronged Indira Canteens on Wednesday evening after the inauguration of 101 canteens across the city on the first day, for free food. Though the canteen at Kanakanapalya was inaugurated in the morning, it was only in the evening that the remaining 100 canteens were opened. Mahesh, a resident of Basaveshwaranagar, relished the rice and sambar at the canteen in Kanakanapalya. He was on his way to Jayanagar on some work and decided to try the food on seeing the crowd at the canteen. "It is a good initiative by the government and it helps poor people like me," said Mahesh. Nagaraj, who works at the RV Teacher's College nearby, plans to visit the canteen daily. "Every day, I used to pay about Rs 20 for a meal. Now, I can get it for Rs 10.

On Wednesday, when a rain-battered city desperately needed the governments help, top ministers and officials were busy with the launch of the Indira Canteen chain. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi was in town for the inauguration and a subsequent rally, giving officials more reason to stay away from inundated areas. With no work afoot to tackle the flooding, citizens were furious. The city received record rainfall in the early hours of Tuesday, leaving several homes and neighbourhoods waterlogged. On plane to Delhi On Wednesday evening, chief minister Siddaramaiah, Bengaluru development minister K J George, KPCC president G Parameshwara and a battery of top Congress leaders left for Delhi with Rahul Gandhi to discuss the expansion of the state Cabinet.
