BBMP delimitation: Suggetions pour in
Bangalore, DH News Service:

Amidst indications of possible delay in conducting elections to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike, suggestions and objections to the draft notification on delimitation of wards are pouring in.

Nearly 500 objections have been received by the Bangalore Urban Deputy Commissioner, till date.

“Most suggestions are related to changing the name of the ward where the citizen resides. The demands are currently being processed and have been forwarded to a committee that looks into the merit of the suggestion. But for now, we are awaiting the final Gazette notification on the election,” said Deputy Commissioner, Bangalore Urban , G N Naik.

Inclusion sought

The ex-councillor from Koramangala, B Mohan, who was the chairman of the Taxation Committee in the last Palike council, has suggested that the Kormangala village and the Harijan Colony should be included in the Kormanagala ward. Mohan has claimed that the village and the Harijan Colony in Kormangala have a history of 700 years and also houses the grave of Kempegowda’s daughter Lakshmi Devi. Mohan suggested that both them should be deleted from the current ward no 147 of Adugodi and be included in Kormanagala, to be renamed as Lakhsmi Devi Ward.
