The residents of HAL 3rd stage in Thippasandra ward are up in arms against an attempt to encroach a public playground to develop a private cricket academy with seven concrete pitches. Residents are tightlipped about the people behind the 'encroachment' of the BBMP playground, but BJP leader N R Ramesh is quite vocal. He has accused the Congress MLC M Narayanaswamy's son N Sagar of using the playground on three acres for personal gain. The BJP leader has lodged a police complaint against MLA's son with the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF), besides writing to BBMP commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad. In his complaint, Ramesh has said that for the past 10 days, concretisation is in full swing to develop a 'private cricket academy' on BBMP land for commercial use.

Locals protest as army men raze BBMP-laid road on defence land 5.12.2016 deccanherald.com
Over 15,000 residents of Modi Garden Layout at DJ Halli in east Bengaluru were in for a shock on Monday when defence personnel from the adjacent Parachute Regiment Training Centre bulldozed the asphalt road linking them to Kaval Byrasandra. The road, which is on defence land, was to be maintained by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), according to a High Court order of 2010. However, the defence authorities claimed that it is their property and the BBMP can't build a road there and, were thus demolishing it. After the road was 'destroyed,' people gathered in large numbers outside Gate 1 of the Parachute Regiment Training Centre and raised slogans against the Army. As tension prevailed in the area, Mayor Padmavathi, Pulakeshinagar MLA Akhanda Srinivas Murthy, DJHalli ward corporator R Sampathraj, Bengaluru Urban district Deputy Commissioner V Shankar, Additional Commissioner of Police (East) P Harishekaran and others rushed there.

UDD smells scam in process to regularise pourakarmikas 4.12.2016 deccanherald.com
In what appears to be a scam in the making, scores of ineligible persons have got themselves certified as pourakarmikas (civic workers) in order to benefit from the state government's move to regularise the service of all pourakarmikas. The government had identified a total of 35,000 pourakarmikas as working under the outsourced system, including 21,000 in the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), for regularisation of their service by framing a special cadre and recruitment rules. But, the number of pourakarmikas claiming to be working under the outsourced system has of late surged alarmingly in various Urban Local Bodies (ULBs). Sources in the Urban Development Department (UDD) said that over 19,000 people have been certified as 'outsourced pourakarmikas' by various ULBs, excluding BBMP, against 14,600 identified by the UDD. The UDD had directed all the city corporations, city municipal councils, town municipal councils and town panchayats to send the list of people who are certified as outsourced ...

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) owes its contractors at least Rs 1,900 crore for the scores of works they have completed over the last 25 months, according to the BBMP Contractors' Association. "Maregowda was just one of the many contractors who faced harassment. There are many people like him who have worked with the BBMP and are suffering. There are 2,000 contractors with the Palike which owes them Rs 1,900 crore," said R Ambikapathi, president of the association. When contractors protest, the Palike settles the bills of one or two months, and the situation goes back to square one, he added. In the last two years, two contractors named Lokesh and Prabhu have committed suicide, he said. BBMP contractors are engaged in projects that range from construction of skywalks and bridges to widening of roads within the city limits. Though many projects are contracted to the Karnataka Rural Infrastructure Development Limited ( KRIDL), many works under the Nagarothana scheme are given to BBMP ...
