Road woes for citizens to continue

Road woes for citizens to continue
City Corporation belies Chief Minister s promise

Bangalore: Will the horrible condition of the Bangalore roads get a face lift soon, as promised by Chief Minister H D K umaraswamy or is it one of those empty promises that the politicians are prone to make? It may be recalled that the CM who recently conducted inspection of some areas which were affected by the monsoon last year , had said in the assembly that the road works in the entire City would be completed before the onset of the monsoon.

However, the Bangalore City Corporation (BCC) engineer-in-chief Ramegowda on W ednesday , contradicting the CM’s statement said that asphalting of road works taken up under the second package would be completed only after March 2007.

H e expressed his apprehension that the tender process may consume majority of time and works may get delayed.

With regard to second package works, he said that the tender process for 124 packages costing Rs 111 crore under the second package have been completed and sent to the BCC Standing Committee on W orks for appro val.

T ender process for the remaining packages would be completed by April 10 and would be sent to the standing committee for approval, he added.

Replying to the delay in executing asphalting works under the first package, Ramegowda said, the contractors cannot be blacklisted.

At the most, the Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) made by the contractors would be forfeited. If at all their names are blacklisted, works being executed by the contractors concerned would be affected, Ramegowda said.

Dear Readers,
Is this for the first time that people have realized that we got traffic problem in all our major cities? Our politicians never bothered to give us the amenities we deserve like the citizens of other nations. The only way to improve the conditions of every department in India is by sacking all the uneducated illiterate goonda politicians and put them behind bars for their evil deeds and pass a law for a minumum qualification of a bachelor's degree to run for any elected public office. Saleem Shirazi.
