Renaming exercise dampens turf opening 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Sports
The Department of Youth Empowerment and Sports and Hockey Karnataka, in a sudden and surprise move, renamed the stadium at Shantinagar as Field Marshal K M Cariappa Stadium, a move that has not gone down well with Hockey Bengaluru. Soon after the inauguration of the blue astro-turf pitch, laid at a cost of Rs 3.75 crore, DYES Director Anupam Agarwal said the venue has been rechristened Field Marshal K M Cariappa Stadium as a tribute to the first Indian commander-in-chief of the Indian Army. "It's completely wrong on the part of DYES to change the name of the stadium without taking us into consideration. The entire property has been leased out to us by the BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) and we've been paying the taxes. We want to know whether due procedures were followed towards renaming of the stadium," said Hockey Bengaluru secretary KKrishnamurthy. "We were not consulted. Was the BBMP consulted? Has the DYES got approval from the Cabinet? From what I hear even the Sports Authority of ...

Why did BBMP and Urban Development Department apologise to Green court? 20.4.2017 Citizen Matters

Karnataka government and BBMP say sorry to NGT for being presumptive about NGT's authority. But what about the conclusion - is the buffer zone rule applicable retrospectively? Should building sanctions - those given recently or are in progress, in the new buffer zone regulations be cancelled? The confusion has only increased.

BBMP to HC: will build retaining wall at Esteem Enclave 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
BBMP commissioner N Manjunath Prasad on Wednesday submitted to the High Court of Karnataka that the Palike would build a retaining wall next to the Esteem Enclave on Bannerghatta Road by June 15.

Esteem Enclave had approached the court complaining the inaction of the BBMP despite repeated complaints to it about a pit located next to their premises, which was causing inconvenience to them. The hole apparently created by a neighbouring property owner Muninarayan was under dispute for many years. The BBMP had issued notice to Muninarayan and had even initiated criminal proceedings against him in 2013. Justice Raghavendra S Chauhan had taken exception to the BBMP's inaction and not pursuing the notices and the criminal complaints.

The commissioner who was summoned before the court filed an affidavit stating that they would take action to fill up the hole and construct a compound wall by June 15. The judge adjourned the next hearing to June 19.

At last, project to supply drinking water to 110 villages takes off 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The much awaited drinking water supply project for 110 villages that were added to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) about a decade ago, was launched by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah here on Wednesday.

Petitions questioning ACB formation sent to division bench 19.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday referred a batch of petitions questioning the formation of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to a division bench.

A batch of petitions were filed by some government officials questioning the formation of the ACB.

Suspended BBMP chief engineer (Major Roads) K T Nagaraj, one of the petitioners, questioned the formation of the ACB which is under the control of the government unlike the Lokayukta.

The petitioners have stated that the ACB was constituted without statutory backing.

The Lokayukta police was established under the provisions of the Karnataka Lokayukta Act, 1984, and therefore backed by statute, unlike the ACB.

Justice Byrareddy referred the matter to the division bench where a PIL on the ACB is pending. The division bench, on the PIL, had granted an interim order directing the Lokayukta to investigate old complaints and ACB to register new ones.

NGT order on lake hailed, locals want industries shut 19.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The National Green Tribunal's (NGT) order on cleaning the polluted Bellandur lake within a month has given a new ray of hope to local residents. They expect the state government to shut down the industries seen as the "biggest source" of sewage flow to Bengaluru's largest lake. K Jagannath, a former president of Bellandur gram panchayat, said the NGT order could not have come at a more opportune moment as the government was dragging its feet over reviving the lake in spite of admonition from the high court. "We are happy that the NGT has ordered the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) to shut down the industries as they are the biggest source of sewage flow to the lake," he added. Srinivas R, a resident of Yemalur, said the government could clean up the lake in "two or three weeks" if it showed intent. A large amount of silt needs to be removed from the bottom of the lake, he added. Local residents say the lake gets sewage not only from industries in Bellandur and the adjacent areas but also ...

Green way forward 19.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Thursday
Waste segregation has always been a cause for concern for Bengaluru. With garbage dumped in hidden spots or strewn on the road, stringent waste management is needed. However, with the recent claim by the BBMP that more than 50 percent of the city's waste is being segregated at the source, the attempts of the authorities seem to be paying off. Many Bengalureans say that while the authorities seem to be making efforts, more needs to be done. While composting needs to be encouraged to keep a check on wet waste, systematic awareness campaigns need to continue, says Prerana Arvind Singh, a resident from Sahakarnagar. "Leaves which fall from the trees on the streets should be composted. There are people who still burn leaves. This should be completely stopped," she says. Waste segregation is happening in most places but in rural areas like Kodigehalli, a strict watch needs to be kept. "Many people still throw mixed waste in such places, citing excuses like the 'pourakarmikas' do not come on time. But if they ...

Clean Bellandur lake in one month: NGT directs Karnataka Government 19.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The National Green Tribunal on Wednesday directed the Karnataka Government to clean the Bellandur lake in Bengaluru, which bore the brunt of fire incidents, within one month. Expressing severe unhappiness over the steps taken by the different state government agencies to revival of water body, the Bench questioned why no action has been taken to block the entry of sewerage water despite the repeated reminders by the pollution control board. The NGT Principal Bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar also directed the state government to set up a committee headed by Urban Development Department Additional Chief Secretary Mahendra Jain to monitor the rejuvenation of the lake.
