Rat in food: BBMP says ward office was 'full of rodents' 27.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has ordered an enquiry into how a rat made its way into the midday meal served to pourakarmikas (civic workers) at the Ramamandira ward office in Rajajinagar on Tuesday. Sarfaraz Khan, Joint Commissioner (Health), BBMP, said the room where the midday meal was kept was "full of rats". "The lid of the food container could have been open, making it easy for the rat to sneak in," he added. But the BJP corporator from Ramamandira ward, Deepa Nagesh, rubbished Khan's claim. She said the food containers brought to her ward office were "not open by any chance". "It wasn't a rat. It was a big bandicoot. The lid was not open by any chance. The moment it was opened, the first thing we saw was this dead creature," she said. The news spread like wildfire across the city, and pourakarmikas consigned the food to the sewers. The corporator accused the BBMP of apathy. "Many pourakarmikas had taken ill earlier. An enquiry revealed traces of E coli in the food served to them. ...

Building debris still being dumped in catchment areas 26.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Although the government claims that it has taken steps to curb the dumping of construction and demolition (C&D) waste at the Bellandur and Varthur valleys and catchment area, indiscriminate dumping was seen even on Wednesday afternoon. Mahendra Jain, additional chief secretary, along with heads of Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) had visited the location after receiving complaints from citizens. Though the officials claimed that garbage and C&D waste dumping had stopped, the DH team saw debris sill being dumped. There was no police security or any official from any civic agency on the ground clearing the debris. All the JCBs were removed. Vehicles carrying loads of C&D waste were found to be reaching the catchment and valley area for dumping. When questioned, one of the vehicle drivers who was with two construction workers, said he was directed to dump the sand and stones near the lake by his boss Bala. ...

Rainwater channel cemented The space between the asphalted road and the rainwater channel at SV Layout, 2nd Main, Sanjaynagar, has been concretised. With groundwater level receding everywhere, the BBMP should take steps to dig percolation pits along rainwater/stormwater channels so that rainwater will percolate down through the ground instead of running off. Muralidharan S ****************************************************************************** Hotels pump sewage into drain Four hotels are located between Hope Farm, Whitefield, and Prashanth Layout. All of them discharge sewage into an open drain closeby. One of the establishments, Adyar Anand Bhavan, openly pumps sewage water into the open drain using a high-power pump during the day. The result is that the entire stretch stinks the whole day. Will the authorities concerned look into the matter and crack down on the errant hotels?

Parked out of basements 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Maximise every inch of commercial space. Say goodbye to building bye-laws. Making a mockery of existing laws, shops have occupied basements across the city, shifting parking spaces to the road. Can a city with its roads traffic-clogged beyond redemption afford this deed by design? In Jayanagar, Gandhinagar, Koramangala or Indiranagar, the violations are damningly out in the open. Yet, the civic agencies turn a blind eye. Does that indicate a nexus, a well-oiled machinery that involves builders, business interests, corporators and the bureaucracy? As motorists spend hours trapped in traffic chaos, the parked vehicles remain the source of many such congestions. If the Namma Metro pillars have eaten up a big chunk of the road width, these illegal parking slots have made it even tougher to get past those streets. Violation by design Typically, buildings designed as commercial complexes do provide a basement free of any structures. But once the necessary approvals are obtained, the shops emerge later, ...

B K Chandrashekar for committee to monitor NGT orders on Bellandur lake 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Former Congress minister BK Chandrashekar has suggested that a group be formed to look into the implementation of the National Green Tribunal's directions on Bellandur lake and identify the glitches in the functioning of the civic bodies over the last 15 years. Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, Chandrashekar sought the setting up of an independent group. "The group should comprise members from the bureaucracy and should be headed by a former bureaucrat. It should also have members from IIT and representatives from the NGOs," he said. The group will examine files pertaining to the Bangalore Development Authority, Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike and the Pollution Control Board. It will submit a report to the chief minister regarding lapses in the functioning of these bodies and hold the authorities concerned responsible. Clarifying that he was not voicing the opinion of his party, Chandrashekar said that it was necessary to find who had the decision-making powers and who had escaped. With regards ...
