Demolitions galore along valleys in Oct.
The Times of India

Bangalore: Demolitions alongside the valley paths and drains will begin from October. Encroachments, obstructions and houses would all be razed, BMP commissioner K Jairaj said on Wednesday.
At the council meeting, Jairaj informed said encroachments have been identified and will be brought down in tandem with BMTF, BWSSB, and the city police. Some demolitions have apparently already taken place at the Koramangala, Hebbal and Vrishabhavathi valleys.
At the second day of the council meeting, corporators once again charged that desilting had not taken place in certain areas. The Jalahalli corporator alleged that storm water drains and sewage lines were non-existent at his ward as also Yeshwantpur. Officials had an answer to this — they are planning to reduce height and depth of manholes, lock them and have a plan of sewage lines running parallel to storm water drains. Another demolition: The BDA on Wednesday demolished unauthorised constructions on its property in Hennur village and recovered land worth Rs 24 crore.
