Water Crisis: Everyone cries politics, but no one wants to be named 15.4.2018 Deccan Herald - News
Winter is long gone, and whatever we can call spring in this city has also passed, and we see the first sign that tells us summer has begun: water tankers. Citizens in many parts of the city suffer from an insufficient supply of water to their areas and are desperate for these tankers. While the BWSSB order mandates that water should be supplied every alternate day, the reality is far from this. One of the areas that do not receive the necessary amount of water in the city is the Saibaba temple road in Doddanekundi. What strikes one about this locality is that the Doddanekundi lake is right next to it, yet the residents of this locality suffer greatly. Here the residents get Cauvery water only once a week. Usually released on Friday or Saturday, the flow of water, which is "like a thread", lasts a couple of hours before stopping. "Its all politics! Theres a man who comes here to turn on the tap. One day I asked him why our area gets so little water. He replied that the other areas dont get more water, ...

Summer in, Tankers out 14.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Water tankers rule the roost on city outskirts. People are forced to buy water as BWSSB is yet to cover the entire city. Summer is here and so is the demand for water tankers in the city. This unregulated business in the city has been flourishing ever since 8 city municipal councils (CMCs), one town municipal council (TMC) and 110 villages were brought under Bruhat Bengaluru Mahangara Palike (BBMP)in 2007. Most apartments mushrooming on city outskirts have no water supplied by Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). According to officials, BWSSB despite having Cauvery water being supplied to over 9 lakh consumers, the city still falls short of the requirement which is largely fulfilled by private water tankers. Bhushan Iyer, a resident of Springfields Apartments located on Sarjapura Road says for the 550 odd apartments, they are spending nearly Rs 1 crore per year only for water. Apartments that have come up in East Bengaluru like Whitefield, Mahadevapura, KR Puram, Marathhalli, Sarjapura ...

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Friday invited the JD(S) to be a part of the Third Front to take on national parties in the 2019 Parliamentary elections.
