Lemongrass oil to stop smell from trash 14.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Its a common sight to see people covering their faces while passing by a garbage truck. Motorists speed up to escape the stench. In order to reduce the stench emanating from garbage trucks across the city, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will spray lemongrass oil on them. "We will be spraying lemongrass oil on every truck. This will completely reduce the stench," said Sarfaraz Khan, Joint Commissioner, Health and Solid Waste Management, BBMP. "This is the only pleasant-smelling oil. We will spray about 15 ml on every garbage truck." Ten bottles of the oil will be enough to spray on all garbage trucks. The oil costs about Rs 1,000 per litre. Khan hoped there will be no pungent smell until the garbage trucks reach the waste-processing plants and landfill sites. Six out of the seven waste-processing plants are functional. Praneeth K Sargur, a regular commuter on Sarjapur Road, said: "Its interesting to know the BBMP is trying this new method to reduce the bad smell. We should see how ...

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 ...

Asked to prune it, BBMP staff chop whole tree 12.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has axed a full-grown tree after an influential person wanted the tree pruned. Residents of Rajarajeshwari Nagar say that since January, the BBMP has felled at least 34 trees in the area to please some influential people.

Why should people vote for you? Citizen Action Forum asks nominees 11.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Candidates contesting the Assembly elections in the city will have to face a question that could define their chances of winning or losing votes. "Why should they vote for you?", is what the Citizen Action Forum (CAF) wants the public to ask the candidates when they arrive at their doorsteps seeking votes. Mukund N from CAF said that they are fed up with organising discussions with the candidates and listen to what they plan to contribute. This time the candidates will have to explain "why should we vote for them?" "Citizens do not know that MLAs and BBMP corporators have different roles to play. All these leaders cannot be questioned for the same set of problems. An MLA is meant to look after non-BBMP issues as there is already an elected corporator for BBMP. "MLA in the city is required to oversee his corporator and look after law and order, water, electricity, hospitals, transport, infrastructure, education, industryâ€" that are part of the state economy.
