BANGALORE: Members of the ruling Congress in the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) are against the State Government's proposal to merge the surrounding local bodies with the BMP and form a Greater Bangalore.

At the BMP Council meeting scheduled for Tuesday, the party members are likely to adopt a resolution demanding that the Government retain the BMP as it is. "We want the Government to merge the surrounding seven City Municipal Councils (CMC), one Town Municipal Council and neighbouring villages and form a separate corporation," ruling party leader H. Ravindra told The Hindu on Monday. He said the party would write to the Government explaining the civic body's inability to develop the 27 wards that were added into BMP's limits in 1995.
