Dr T V Ramachandra, co-ordinator, Energy and Wetlands Group, Indian Institute of Science, blamed the inefficient administration for urban flooding and went on to point out that the real estate lobby was killing the city.

Though flooding has been a recurring phenomenon, the government has done nothing to tackle the issue. Why are we giving our city to the builders?" He asked, noting the recent legislation to curb open spaces in the city. Taking the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to task, Ramachandra said, "The councillors are not doing their job and the government should dissolve the BBMP. Debris is dumped into the water body and catchment areas are encroached. The volume of froth at Bellandur Lake only shows the height of corruption," the professor, who had prepared a report titled: 'Bengaluru will be a Unlivable and Dead City in Five Years', told Deccan Herald.
