Today, I some some poeple digging up the road [a small square, size of a manhole] just after the Electronics City Toll Plaza towards Hosur Road. Not too sure what was going on, but it looked like a manhole being inserted.
That means either that area had no under ground sewage system till now?? or might be for some soil testing..?

NICE plea against TJ Abraham referred to CJ

NICE company, the BMIC project proponent, filed an application seeking initiation of suo motu contempt of court action against activist TJ Abraham, who is also a complainant before the special Lokayukta court.

Justice H Billappa referred the application seeking contempt-of-court action, the memo filed by Abraham and NICE objections, before the Chief Justice for further orders. The company has claimed that the memo filed by Abraham is irresponsible, causing harm to the institution and administration of justice, and also aimed at scandalizing and lowering the court's authority.

Referred to CJ

Justice H. Billappa of the High Court on Wednesday referred to the Chief Justice a memo, filed by social activist T.J. Abraham, in which he stated that “he asked his counsel not to make any further argument as the court had overlooked the principal arguments made by his counsel earlier” while making it clear that “he would never ever doubt the neutrality of the court …”

He had filed the memo during the hearing of the petitions filed by Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE), which is executing Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor Project, questioning the probe ordered in October 2012 by the Special Lokayukta Court into alleged irregularities in the project. The High Court in December 2012 had stayed the probe.

Meanwhile, NICE, in its application raised objection to Mr. Abhraham’s memo while also filling a plea to initiate contempt of court action against him for making such statements on the court.

After going through the contents of the memo and applications, Mr. Justice Billappa referred them to the Chief Justice for orders.

At last, it’s a NICE concrete road

Company officials insist it has nothing to do with allegation that the original agreement had specified a concrete road

Seventeen years after the project was launched, a nine-kilometre stretch of Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) has been converted from a bitumen road to white concrete. BMIC is the outcome of an agreement between the state government and Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE).

The concrete segment begins near PESIT College on Outer Ring Road and ends at the NICE office near Somapura village (Clover Junction).

This development is significant because of a case filed in 2012 in the Lokayukta court alleging, among other things, that the original agreement specified a concrete road. Instead, the petitioner pointed out, toll is being collected for a tar road.

The Lokayukta court ordered attachment of toll collected for the previous two years and an investigation into the alleged irregularities. The order was stayed by the high court earlier this year.

Last month, the complainant publicly offered Rs 1 crore to anyone who could prove that they had paid toll to NICE to travel on concrete road.

NICE officials insisted that the new concrete stretch has nothing to do with the case in the Lokayukta court. Manjunath Nayak, vice-president, public relations, said, “From day one, BMIC was to be a concrete road. But as per our contract, we have to build a concrete road after the first 62 kilometres. We had to first build bitument road on a virgin stretch and wait for it to settle down. We have high embankments and these have to settle down. If concrete is laid in the first instance itself, the road would be uneven. The concrete road is the final version of BMIC."

DG is one of the ugliest men in India. Dark with that huge bald forehead. When he the prime minister it was embarassing to see him representing India at all the international conference. If people in KT weren't such fools to hold him such regard, this project might have been done a long time ago.
Well brother it is not the physical looks but it is their attitude which makes a politician or say any person look beautiful or ugly. It is also the perspective of an individual which defines the beauty / acceptability. For eg, SP, lallu, MMS, JL, LKA, seem more embarassing to me than DG.

More over I think you were over eager to label all KA people as fools just because you think some people hold him in high regard. I would rather say that not only in KA you will find similar fools all across india be it MH, TN, AP, KL, DL, GJ and any where else that is why more embarassing people like SP, LPY, JL, MB, RG, etc are still fourishing with popularity.

I suggest let the discussion be limited to projects alone and not to take this as an opportunity to exhibit hatredness towards one another.
