BBMP is by the most prestigious Elections where tall leaders of BJP,Cong,JD(S) lock their horns....This will probably sound stupid but i hadn't heard of BBMP elections before so i didn't vote thinking it wasn't a big deal.
:cheers:I am seing the change which Bangalore has been through the last four years and several govts. First it was non govt, then it was Kumaraswamy and then BJP with BSY at the helm.
I still remember the broken roads and construction waste dumped by the side of in even major roads in 2006.
Now I see roads being widened, tarred, painted, central medians being planted with trees, had a revolution regarding buses, all interior roads tarred, new bus shelters and stands made, high mast lamps erected in all major junctions, Metro work being speeded up, Underpasses/flyovers being constructed etc etc..
Way to go BSY and BJP amidst little problems within.
Bharat Mata Ki Jai!!
I said I hadn't heard of BBMP elections "before" so i didnt vote.Yes there was a lot of campaigning.I just didnt think it was that important.I'll definitely vote the next time.:cheers:How can you say you hadn't heard of it? There was tremendous campaigning activity this year, it's your duty to vote.
I wish this were true in the areas where I know. There are numerous new Developments that have come up around Bluru, some not properly done due to unscrupulous developers. Nevertheless, people bought the properties and have moved in paying property tax. The roads are yet to tarred, these roads are still dirt roads. There is litigation between the developer and the Dev Gowda Halli owners of the land sold to developers. Some are brain dead lawsuits, with politicians interjecting themselves in the middle of the fracas demanding bribe payoffs. These areas are under frequent electricity outages, water supply is intermittent, roads are a nightmare during torrential rains, the sewer system from the nearby halli causes unsanitary conditions, nothing is done for ages. Time for the city of Bluru to address all areas uniformly and come up with a plan to beef up infrastructure programs. All of them pay taxes and it behooves the city to systematically address all urban infrastructure needs, roads, lighting, drainage, electricity, phone/internet lines, sewage and litigation. Everywhere these items are an afterthought, when they should be done upfront prior to development of homes, buildings.Now I see roads being widened, tarred, painted, central medians being planted with trees, had a revolution regarding buses, all interior roads tarred, new bus shelters and stands made, high mast lamps erected in all major junctions, Metro work being speeded up, Underpasses/flyovers being constructed etc etc..
