Voter ID card errors spell trouble for booth officers 15.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Citizens blame them for mistakes in their EPICs In what can be termed the latest of problems plaguing the City during the electoral season, Booth Level Officers (BLOs) engaged at polling stations are having a tough time answering the queries of citizens who have received erroneous voter ID cards. Chandrashekhar, a government school teacher deployed as a BLO at Chokkasandra ward, was taken aback when a few residents took him to task as they had received voter cards filled with errors, like mismatch of photographs, incorrect dates of birth and wrongly spelt names. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Chandrashekhar said: "Our job is to only help the public in filling Form-6 and collecting the documents required for registration of voter identity cards. We, in turn, hand them over to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, which later furnishes the required information in the cards. But the people would not budge and they blame me instead." Ramya T C, another BLO working at a polling station located at Nagasandra ...

Motivating people to vote 14.4.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The State will go to polls this week. In addition to door-to-door campaigns by politicians, several private organisations, students and government agencies, such as the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), are chalking out innovative and attractive measures to inspire people to come out of their homes and vote. The message — even one vote counts — is being drilled into people's mind. In addition to the BBMP initiative, the Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) has printed a message on its half-litre milk packets — "Your vote is precious. Vote on April 17 without fail." In another initiative, a group of women were seen drawing rangoli with the election as the central theme. The BBMP has converted the Kempegowda Park, right opposite its office, into a 'vote spot'. It has posters and art work erected by the students of an art school and if all this is not enough, there's also a local theatre group that has been going around the City urging people to vote through street plays and music ...

People's Problems 14.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Erratic bus services For the last several weeks especially on Saturdays, the bus services from Shivajinagar to Malleswaram/Rajajinagar were very erratic between 12.30 pm to 2 pm. Only one bus is plying on this route during this time and it is overcrowded at the starting point itself. Large number of commuters including students who want to catch the bus at Indian Express, C College and Shivananda have to wait for hours and are virtually at the mercy of BMTC. The lethargic attitude of the BMTC is really condemnable. The BMTC should wake up from the slumber and solve this problem by plying more buses on this route during afternoon especially on Saturdays. Madhava Rao Prevent parking on footpath in Indiranagar I am a senior citizen resident in the heart of so called Residential area of Double Road Indiranagar, Bangalore. I have seen this locality grow in the last 25 years but the sad part is that the development has never taken into account the discomfort and miseries of citizens residing here. In the last ...

AAP aims at Palike elections 14.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Aam Admi Party appears to have plans to expand its base in Karnataka. The fledgling political organisation is aiming to contest elections to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). "Our aim is to capture the BBMP and we will work towards it," Ravi Krishna Reddy, the AAP candidate for Bangalore Rural, said on Sunday. The elections to the local body are due next year and the AAP hopes to repeat is performance in the Delhi Assembly elections. Reddy slogged it out hard on Sunday, seeking votes in parts of his constituency. A novice in politics, 40-year-old Reddy is a postgraduate in engineering and is a software professional. A native of Anekal in Bangalore district, Reddy lived in the US for several years before returning to India and taking a plunge into the anti-corruption movement. He is candid enough to admit that AAP should have begun its campaign a bit earlier so that it could have reached the voters better. "We are facing two practical problems in campaigning. First, lack of time and the ...

Succour from the bottom 13.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Bangalore, which at one point of time, had a thousand lakes is today forced to draw water from nearly 1000 feet below the ground Not knowing the background of a lake, children gather at a playground in Chikka-Kallasandra in Uttarahalli every evening where some sheds of scrap dealers too have come up, while a large portion of it is reserved for the sale of construction materials. This is not an ordinary playground but Chikka-Kallasandra Lake, which is a victim of land sharks who are on the prowl across the City grabbing water bodies, pasture land, natural canals, hillocks, forest, playgrounds and parks. Village documents say that the lake is spread on 13 acres and 20 guntas, but today it is a barren land and is at least two feet above the ground level. Some elderly people in the area still recall the days when they used to swim there. Muniyappas anguish is palpable when he narrates about the death of the lake. "I learnt swimming in this lake, which was home to many birds preying on the fish. It was a ...
