BMA will take care of city: CM

BMA will take care of city: CM
The Times of India

Bangalore: The civic summit is a precursor to the muchawaited Bangalore Metropolitan Authority (BMA), CM H D Kumaraswamy told TOI in an interview. Excerpts:
Is there more to this civic meet than getting all stakeholders under one roof ?
The government is keen on having an umbrella body called Bangalore Metropolitan Authority. Now that Greater Bangalore has taken shape, we need a single body to coordinate all urban issues. Civic summit’s main objective is to bring all infrastructure organisations under one umbrella. An announcement to this effect would be made in a month. There will be a follow-up meeting after four months.
Are you happy with the pace of work implemented by civic agencies given that many projects that the BBMP, BDA and BWSSB presented are a backlog?
Infrastructure is crucial for Bangalore. That is why we’ve plans for so many grade separators and flyovers. I’ve instructed officials that these projects should be completed inside of four months. The Malleswaram grade separator work, for instance, will now gather pace; flyovers at Airport Road and Anand Rao Circle have been completed. Even the Ramamurthynagar and Magadi Road works will be delivered on schedule. There may be projects that are finding mention for a few years now but it is this government which has implemented them.
