A compound wall of an institution belonging to former Union minister C M Ibrahim at Nagawara and a house at Myadarahalli in Shettihalli ward which were encroaching on stormwater drains were razed on Tuesday. After a gap of almost a month, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) resumed the stormwater drain encroachment removal drive at three locations in the city, mainly targeting vacant sites situated on the now disappeared drains.

854 trees to be axed to widen Ballari Road 19.9.2016 deccanherald.com
As many as 854 trees will be felled to make way for the widening of roads around Palace Grounds, especially on Jayamahal Main Road. Recently, the High Court of Karnataka cleared the decks for the widening of Ballari Road and Jayamahal Road, abutting the Palace Grounds. The High Court directed the state government to issue Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) to members of the erstwhile Mysuru royal family as ordered by the Supreme Court two years ago. In order to ease traffic congestion, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) intends to widen the road to 45 metres or 150 feet from the BDA junction to Mehkri Circle and from Mehkri Circle to Cantonment railway station. A senior BBMP engineer said there is no uniformity in road width from Mehkri Circle to Jayamahal. Given the traffic load on this stretch, it has become necessary to widen it further and maintain uniform width. "The total distance of road to be widened is 4.29 km. The width of road ranges from 30 metres to 35 metres at some places," ...

The drive to clear encroachments on stormwater drain will intensify from Tuesday.

The drive will be carried out in Srinivasapur, Harohalli, Kadugondanahalli and Myadarahalli, where the total encroachment is about 3,000 square metres. However, on Tuesday 1,650 square metres of encroachment will be cleared and the drive will continue for at least a week, in these locations. Sources in the BBMP said at present, the civic agency is focusing only on vacant sites where the stormwater drains pass. However, a small house will be razed in Myadarahalli.

"We will start the drive from morning at these places. The Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force and the local police will assist us in the drive," said a Palike officer. BBMP commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad had convened a meeting to strategise the drive.

After government's cold response, residents step in to save Varthur lake 18.9.2016 deccanherald.com
After the recent catfish kill, volunteers from Whitefield Rising group (Varthur lake team) and Varthur Rising have decided to save the water body without depending on the government. To start with, volunteers plan to equip all the 17 inlets at Varthur lake with solid waste traps that prevent waste from entering the lake. The waste collected would be disposed of with the help of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) at regular intervals. Jagadish Reddy, a volunteer from Whitefield Rising,said: "A mesh to hold macrophages (weeds) floating around the lake would be placed. This would help keep the water body healthy. There are also plans to set up a water treatment apparatus after consultations about a suitable technology at Varthur Idgah Road inlet on a pilot basis. We are in talks with a few sponsors and hope to execute the projects at the earliest." There are two sewage outlets located in north and south east side of the lake. Sewage from upstream, apartments and effluents from industries besides ...

Residents' initiative to make Gayathrinagar plastic-free 18.9.2016 deccanherald.com
A few citizens from Gayathrinagar ward 'D' block, which falls under the Malleswaram Assembly constituency, have launched a plastic-free campaign to ensure successful implementation of the ban imposed by the state government. The citizens decided to embark upon the initiative after observing that several traders in their locality continued to use plastic, despite the ban. Santosh G, president of Sri Vidyaganapathi Yuvakara Sangha and a member of the Rajajinagar Residents' Welfare Association, said that the BBMP had launched a plastic seizing drive in a few pockets of the ward a few months ago. However, the drive did not serve any purpose, since the traders continued to use plastic. He said: "When I asked the traders as to why they continued using plastic bags, they told me that they were easily available in the markets. While, a few others stated that the cotton bags were unaffordable, and the alternative options were expensive. "I discussed with the members of Sri Vidyaganapathi Yuvakara Sangha and we ...

Cong corporators for retaining power with JD(S) help 17.9.2016 deccanherald.com
Congress corporators and workers want the party's leadership to continue the alliance with the JD(S) in the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and keep the BJP away from power "in the interests of the city". At a meeting called by KPCC president G Parameshwara on Saturday, they referred to the initiatives taken for the development of the city in the last one year. This was possible because the Congress is holding the reins of power in the BBMP with the JD(S) support, they said. The state Congress had called the meeting to discuss the steps needed to maintain peace in Bengaluru following the protests over the Cauvery issue. The party leaders asked the corporators and workers to ensure that the incidents of arson and violence do not recur. Speaking to reporters later, KPCC working president Dinesh Gundu Rao said that he and Parameshwara would soon meet JD(S) state president H D Kumaraswamy on continuing the alliance. The Congress will finalise the mayoral candidate once the JD(S) confirmed the ...

Despite KHRC rap, govt lax on rehab of displaced 17.9.2016 deccanherald.com
Despite being pulled up by the Karnataka Human Rights Commission, the state government has done little to rehabilitate and relocate those displaced during the recent demolition drive in the city. The government has also not furnished a compliance report to the commission. Last month, the BBMP razed as many as 141 structures that were encroaching upon stormwater drains in different zones of the city. Based on a complaint that the displaced families were put to hardship, the KHRC had asked Chief Secretary Arvind Jadhav to file a compliance report on why the issue was not handled with sensitivity. It had also asked the government to outline why no prior notice was given to the affected families, and why a feasible package was not devised to provide them temporary rehabilitation and relocation package. KHRC had passed this order on August 11, asking the Chief Secretary's office to furnish the report within three weeks. Yet to file report KHRC registrar P Suryanarayan Gowd told DH that the government is yet ...
