Punishing the performers

It must only be in India that performers are punished and banished to obscurity. Jayakar Jerome, Chairman of the Bangalore Development Authority, who was appointed to the post by former Chief Minister S.M.Krishna is a performer par excellence. From turning around the down-in-the-dumps BDA and equipping it with a surplus of Rs. 1200 crores to alloting over 60000 new residential sites, rejuvenating lakes and gardens, building the Outer Ring Road, several flyovers, taking on the land sharks and clearing encroachments and recovering public property, renovating hospitals and monuments - he's done it all. Now the its the turn of every lobby with vested interests that Jerome took on, and won, that are set to get back at him. The Dharam Singh regime is all set to banish Jerome to an obscure posting. The loss will entirely be Bangalore's.
