BBMP's claim on waste disposal exposed 27.11.2014 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike's (BBMP) claims of effective garbage disposal in the City were exposed on Wednesday when corporators from Yelahanka zone highlighted the poor solid waste management in their respective wards. Raising the issue at the BBMPCouncil meeting, the BJP's Vidyaranyapura corporator Nandini Srinivas complained that garbage collectors hardly showed up in her ward in the last several months. Other corporators from the BBMP's Yelahanka zone supported her statement. BVG India, the company which bagged the garbage removal contract, has miserably failed in their respective wards too, the corporators alleged. Leader of Opposition, Manjunath Reddy, demanded to know the Palike's compulsion behind retaining the BVG India contract despite the company's poor track record. Kodigehalli corporator Ashwath Narayana Gowda said that though the Palike had stopped sending garbage to Mandur, it had not made any alternative arrangements for the wards under Yelahanka zone. "BVG India does not have ...

BBMP will rope in pvt players to develop 11 markets like malls 27.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Criticising the ruling BJP's approval for a joint venture with private players to "develop" 11 markets likes malls, Opposition members stormed into the well of the BBMP Council on Wednesday and staged a walkout. The Palike has planned to develop the markets with the help of private enterprises (see box), saying it's a necessary move to improve its finances and offer more facilities to the people. The Palike also plans to upgrade other markets such as Bandimot Road market, Onameenu market, Halasur market, Sirsi Circle market, Darjipet market, Ballapura market, Balepet Chowk market and Malleswaram 8th Cross market and Mutton market. But Opposition members questioned the need for a joint venture with private firms and feared that if markets were developed on the lines of Garuda Mall, only the rich would be able to visit them. If all markets are converted into malls, just like the Garuda Mall, where will the poor go, Congress corporator Sampath Kumar asked. Leader of Opposition in the Palike Council, ...

Arid patches in parks 25.11.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Patches of land that were once green now lie parched-yellow in the bustling sectors of HSR Layout. Known to be a quiet and homely area, HSR Layout is crippled with problems thanks to rapid commercialisation. The lack of well-maintained parks is one of the problems faced by the residents of the area. Dried-up plants lying uncleared and inadequate lighting are a common sight in the parks here. However, the residents haven't given up. The HSR Layout Residents Welfare Association, Sector 2, has taken up the responsibility of providing adequate water to the two parks located in the area. "Lack of water has led to arid patches in the parks. The existing borewells have dried up and the corporation has removed the motor as well. Hence, the committee is buying water from private agents and maintaining the parks. Though we have approached the members of the Corporation several times and held many meetings with them, they aren't taking any interest," says N Gopalakrishna, the vice-president of the association. He ...

Post-Mandur, Palike's trash woes mount 25.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Villages around some abandoned quarry pits on the outskirts of Bengaluru and a lake near Mandur are the new dumping grounds for the Citys garbage. To keep its promise made to the residents of Mandur, BBMP has stopped sending waste to the landfill since Friday. However, the alternatives are not yet ready. About 1,300 tonnes of waste that used to go to the Mandur landfill are now going to some quarry pits and a lake, sources told Deccan Herald. "It is a matter of grave concern that mixed waste collected in an unscientific manner is going to some quarry pits. It will pollute the groundwater," said an official. Some quarry pits at Kada Agrahara in East Bengaluru and a lake near Mandur are now bearing the brunt. The challenge lies in properly disposing of the 1,300 tonnes of garbage that earlier used to go to the Mandur landfill. On an average, the City produces about 4,000 tonnes of waste per day. Following vehement protests by residents of villages around the landfills, BBMP is now switching to waste ...
