High Court asks BBMP to unlock marriage halls 23.1.2015 deccanherald.com
The High Court on Thursday allowed marriages scheduled to be held on January 23 and 24 at a community hall belonging to HAL's Aircraft Employees Co-operative Society Ltd. The BBMP had locked the hall on January 19 on the grounds that the society did not hold any trade licence.

Justice B V Nagarathna while directing the BBMP to open the locks till February 3, observed that 'court manages marriages, postpones divorces,' hence the scheduled marriages will not be stopped.

A similar petition related to Shiva Parvathi Kalyana Mantapa in Banaswadi was also heard where the marriages scheduled for February 11, 12 and 23 were allowed. The bench directed the owners of the halls to produce necessary documents and directed them not to trouble the third parties in these matters.

'State government favoured Congmen in BBMP works' 23.1.2015 deccanherald.com
The leader of the ruling BJP in the BBMP Council, N R Ramesh, on Thursday accused the State government of awarding BBMP-related works worth Rs 560 crore to nine Congress workers through the Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited (KRIDL). Addressing reporters, Ramesh said that during 2013-14 and 2014-15, the State government had granted Rs 560 crore for the improvement of roads and other development works. However, instead of giving that money to the BBMP, the government took a decision to straightaway entrust the work to KRIDL without floating tenders under the urgent work category. The government bypassed the transparency rules, to enable the KRIDL to charge at least 11 per cent extra from the estimate of the work. Ramesh alleged that the KRIDL did not execute the work on its own and sub-contracted it to nine Congress workers, who have not even completed 40 per cent of the work although the work was supposed to be carried out urgently for which extra 11 per cent were paid. Taking a dig at ...

Quality of civil works very poor: CM 22.1.2015 deccanherald.com
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday expressed displeasure over the quality of civil works in the State.

Addressing the media after inaugurating the premises of the Karnataka Engineers Academy here, he said, "Road and building works in the State and City are not at all of good quality. Works done by BBMP are very poor.

Government spent crores of rupees last year on improving roads, but their condition remains the same. Cost of projects can escalate, but quality should not be compromised with."

Public Works Minister H C Mahadevappa said that projects were becoming expensive due to escalation in cost of construction materials. Thus execution of works is becoming expensive. "Engineers should think of recycling construction materials and debris.

They should do more research on eco-friendly technologies," he said. Five engineers from various government departments were honoured on the occasion.
