Reportedly Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa had inspected the civic amenities of Bengaluru’s IT corridor on Sunday. Meanwhile the inspection covered peripheral areas like Hebbal, Tin Factory, Bellandur and Silk Board. Furthermore these areas are marred by perennial traffic jams, bad roads and even waste management issues. During the CM’s visit, party MLAs and MPs are likely to accompany the CM along with the city mayor Gangambike Malikarjun.
The Mayortold “I received the message that there are city rounds on Sunday. As the mayor, it is my duty to attend it and I will do so. I’m not sure what the chief minister is inspecting. We’ll get to know only by the end of the day”. Further this drive comes after the CM had taken exception to the functioning of the city’s civic body the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. Soon after taking charge, he had ordered a garbage free city within two weeks’ time.
Moreover he had also directed the Additional Chief Secretary of the Urban Development Department to probe into the money spent on Siddaramaiah's Nagarothana scheme. Perhaps this included money spent on Indira Canteens, whitetopping works and TenderSure roads and the budget for BBMP was also withheld temporarily with a halt on all work orders.
