Garbage: BBMP moves court for vacating stay

Garbage: BBMP moves court for vacating stay

Staff Reporter
BANGALORE: The Bruhat BangaloreMahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Tuesday filed an application before the Karnataka High Court urging it to vacate a stay it had granted earlier on tenders for solid waste management in Bangalore which includes sweeping and cleaning the roads of Bangalore and transporting garbage.

A Division Bench headed by the Chief Justice last week stayed the tender on petitions by former corporators, M. Pari, Venkatsh and P.R. Ramesh. The petitioners had then contended that there was no elected body and that the tenders had been called for by the BBMP Administrator.

The former corporators had said that the Administrator had no right to call for tenders in the absence of an elected body.

The BBMP, in its application, has sought for vacating the stay.
