I Yeddyurappa assures equal priority to 28 Assembly constituencies in Bengaluru I

Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa promised to make Bengaluru a world class city and said the government will give equal priority to the development of all the 28 Assembly constituencies.
He was speaking after inaugurating infrastructure projects worth Rs 60 crore including a stadium of international standards at Gunjur in Mahadevpura on Tuesday. Mr Yeddyurappa said legislators should not compromise on the quality of work. He also advised people to become pro-active and monitor the quality of ongoing projects. There should be a healthy competition among legislators for ensuring quality and expediting the work, the Chief Minister said.

The Opposition should act as a watchdog and support in development activities instead of finding faults with the govern ment, Mr Yeddyurappa added.

The stadium at Gunjur will be built as per the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) module. About 27 acres of land has been identified and earmarked for the purpose. To cater to the educational needs of middle and upper middle class students, two polytechnics will come up at the constituency one each at Immadihalli and Channasandra, he said.

Some of the major work like providing signal free movement on Outer Ring Road, construction of a flyover at Mahadevapura junction, construction of grade separators at Kadubisanahalli Junction, Devarabisanahalli Junction and Bellandur Junction have been inaugurated. The work will be completed at a cost of Rs 14.40 crore.

Work on the Metro Rail will be expedited and Reach One will be completed by September 2010, Mr Yeddyurappa reiterated.

Work on the ambitious Kempegowda Layout planned at a cost of Rs 2,610 crore on 4,815 acres will commence from June and will be executed by Benglauru Development Authority (BDA).

Substantial allocation has been made for development of district centres and headquarters. Provision has been made for Rs 1,300 crore for development of Bengaluru through BBMP and BDA, the Chief Minister said. Mr Yeddyurappa said the campaign against terrorism has drawn a good response from college students.
