BANGALORE: Citizen’s Action Forum for Greater Bangalore has urged the Government to grant more time to seek public opinion on ‘Greater Bangalore’.

Addressing a press conference, V K Somashekar of the Forum said that Government has given time till December 2, in this regard.

‘‘We will write to the Chief Minister and Chief Secretary to extend time to get opinions of more people,’’ he said.

He said the forum had approached 120 resident welfare associations in this regard, besides several NGOs.

The forum condemned the decision of the Government to collect opinion of various agencies like Bangalore Development Authority, BMRDA, BMP, and Revenue Department and said that this move had created confusion among the people over the project. It urged the Government to set up a single agency to gather the opinions.

Somashekar urged the Government to explain clearly the purpose of Greater Bangalore.‘‘If this is made clear, there would be better feed-back from the public,’’ he added.

The public can send its opinion on Greater Bangalore to citizenactionforum@gmail and Public can also post its opinions to ‘‘The e-petitions will be sent to Chief Minister and Chief Secretary,’’ he said.
