HBR Layout residents cry foul over filth

BANGALORE: These days residents of HBR Layout, 4th Block, hop, skip and jump to avoid slush and rot strewn along the roads. Notwithstanding all the initiatives and claims of action, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) swears it has been doing to keep the residential areas clean, complaints are galore.

Residents say they are tired of complaining to BBMP and to City Municipal Council (CMC) about the growing garbage hills on the vacant Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) sites. Barring lip service nothing was being done. Residents also say that the door-to-door garbage collectors dispose off the garbage near the dustbins rather than properly placing them in the allotted disposal points.

‘‘We have complained to health officials of both the departments many times but nothing has resulted so far. The health and safety of children are at stake since the rotting food-waste attract street dogs,’’ said Vasanth K, a resident. After the heavy pre-monsoon showers, the garbage has come till the doorstep, he complained.

Foul smell is another nuisance of uncleared wastes on the public road. ‘‘The civic agencies must take its task more seriously,’’ said Priya L, another resident.

I strongly support on the facts mentioned above and also like to add few more incidents which happened to my daughter and also to my neighbour due to the un-authorised mutton shops croped up recently in this area, this happened just after a few days after the aero India show (Shops were forced to close while the show was conducted) as my daughter was walking beside this mutton shop an Eagle came from behind and grabed the vegitable cover thinking it as a mutton and the same thing happened to my neigbour's wife of Mr.Babu,
Also Due to this shop a lot of stray dogs are attracted in this road and it has become a menace and our children are now scared to go outside the house nowadays,
this has already been complained online to BBMP but without any action till now, Hoping for the best from BBMP again to live peaceful life at HBR Layout.
