As polls get over, people say utility problems are back 22.4.2014 deccanherald.com
The Lok Sabha elections are over, and problems of power cuts, shortage of water supply and uncleared garbage have surfaced again in the City. Citizens wonder if the supply of utilities was regular only until elections and the examination season ended. But the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) and the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) insist that the services have been affected by "minor and routine problems in maintenance or those pertaining to the contractor".They, however, could not explain why the maintenance works began just after the elections got over. People in the City's northern, southern and western parts complained that water supply had been affected since Friday. "In Nagarabhavi, Mysore Road and surrounding areas, the flow of water supply is low and the duration less. Is it because of the long weekend or because the elections are over," wondered Alok Kumar, a resident of Nagarabhavi. In many areas, manholes and sewage ...

The blame game continues... 21.4.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The elections brought work on infrastructural projects to a virtual standstill. A few roads in the City that were tarred have been rendered useless again, thanks to the breakage of underground water pipes. Sadly, no one is in a hurry to fix the problem. Huge quantities of water continue to go down the drain at a time when the City is grappling with shortage of water. Metrolife interacted with Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) officials, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and ordinary people to understand the situation. BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana points out that construction works across the City have rendered the roads unmotorable and created potholes. "One of the main reasons for the creation of potholes is the leakage of underground water pipes. Continuous seepage from these pipes damages the road," he says. About the method of rectifying potholes, Lakshminarayana informs, "It is impossible to do a regular road asphalt and now with the monsoons approaching fast, we are ...
