A resident of Malleswaram constituency, Kalasegowda, finds a leisurely evening stroll along the streets is as tricky as circling around booby-traps. Disheartened by the footpaths teamed with street vendors, Kalasegowda, in his late 60s, discontinued his strolls nearly two years ago. "Street vendors occupy the footpath from Vinayaka Circle to Rajesh Hotel. So, senior citizens have to give up their evening walks," he told the Janaspandana-Citizens for Change programme organised by Deccan Herald and Prajavani at Krishnadevaraya Kalamandira in Malleswaram on Saturday.

"This is a very tricky issue, especially since it involves the ...
