Shanthakumari is Mayor, Ranganna her deputy 6.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Moodalapalya corporator N Shanthakumari and Kamakshipalya corporator K Ranganna, both from the BJP, were elected unopposed as Bangalore's mayor and deputy mayor respectively on Friday. The BJP enjoys absolute majority in the BBMPCouncil. Senior BJP leaders who were at loggerheads over selecting the candidate for the mayor's post finally decided on 43-year-old Shanthakumari, though she is being probed by the Lokayukta for owning disproportionate assets. The election of Shanthakumari was indeed a personal victory for her mentor and former minister V Somanna, who had been strongly lobbying to see her as the first citizen of the Garden City. A section of senior BJP leaders was in favour of having a corporator from the dominant Vokkaliga community as the Mayor ahead of the BBMP elections likely to take place next year. The BJP's Vokkaliga face and former deputy chief minister R Ashoka had thus been pitching for JP Park corporator B R Nanjundappa or Vijayanagar corporator H Ravindra, who belong to that ...

Track Palike's green initiatives online 6.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Bowing to constant pressure from the High Court and the corporators, the forest division of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has made its activities transparent by publishing details on its website. The general public will be able to access such information as the number of seedlings planted in Palike wards, where they are planted, names of the corporator under each ward, types of tree guards installed (metal/bamboo/without), contractor names along with their contact numbers, etc. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Brijesh Kumar, Chief Conservator of Forests, BBMP, said that staff from the BBMP's forest wing had taken the responsibility to update information on the website every week. "The forest planting progress report has been active since July 26. We took this step in the wake of High Court directions to draw an action plan to ensure accountability and maintenance of trees that Palike had planted from 2007 to 2011. We are not sure if information regarding planting has been updated for the ...

Govt sets ball rolling on Akrama Sakrama in City, suburbs 5.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Paving the way for implementation of the Akrama Sakrama scheme in Bangalore and its suburbs, the State government has initiated the process of holding elections for constituting the 18-member Bangalore Metropolitan Planning Committee (BMPC) as ordered by the High Court of Karnataka. All sitting corporators of the BBMP, chairpersons and deputy chairpersons of zilla, taluk and gram panchayats in the Bangalore Metropolitan Area (BMA) will elect 18 members from among themselves for the BMPC. The election is scheduled for September 16. Panchayat chairpersons and deputy chairpersons can elect two members. Following the High Court order that the Akrama-Sakrama scheme cannot be implemented unless BMPC was formed, the government had instructed the Bangalore Regional Commissioner to initiate the process of forming the BMPC in its letter dated August 25, 2014. The High Court had given the order on a petition by C N Kumar, who had questioned the validity of Section 14(A) of the Karnataka Town and Country Planning ...

Palike looks to people to get rid of garbage mess 5.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Entrusted with the task of finding a viable solution to the mounting garbage problem that has brought a bad name to Bangalore internationally, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike's Special Commissioner (Municipal Solid Waste) Darpan Jain is scrambling for ways to resolve the issue before December 1, the deadline set for closure of the Mandur landfill. Left with just three months, Jain hopes the Palike will succeed in meeting the deadline. He banks on the people's co-operation and the top Palike officials' efforts to get rid of the mess. Deccan Herald spoke to him on various issues concerning the garbage problem. Excerpts: People living around Bingipura and Lakshmipura are opposed to the landfill and waste-processing unit in their area. How are you dealing with the new problem? It is true that people have raised some objection. We have requested them to provide us the landfill site, but their demand is to make the place stench-free and leachate-free. They also want garbage mounds capped and the area ...

Mathikere lake on verge of extinction 4.9.2014 deccanherald.com
While illegal dumping of debris and land grabbing have already reduced the extent of Mathikere Lake to one-tenth of its actual size, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is now planning to lay a road on the lakebed. This will no doubt shrink the lake further. Road-laying work at the lake, located inside JP Park near Yeshwantpur, is in progress despite strong opposition from the Lake Development Authority (LDA). Strangely, neither BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana nor BBMP Joint Commissioner Bheemappa (Rajarajeshwari Nagar Zone) seem to be aware of the development. When Deccan Herald spoke to Lakshminarayana, his instant reaction was: "Let me check with my engineers. I have no information about the road-laying work on Mathikere lake." Bheemappa's reply was even more ambiguous. "I don't think BBMP is carrying out the work. It must be some other agency." Even the ward-level engineer refused to speak about the ongoing work at the lake. However, a letter written by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) ...
