Traffic biggest concern, water a close second
Aarthi R | TNN

Bangalore: February 21 is D-day for the BBMP elections. But the aam janta is already thinking beyond it. Many have started engaging in discussions on what the elected and expanded BBMP council should focus on.
Just a week old, the website is already witnessing serious debates and getting people to vote on various issues the council should focus on. So far, traffic and transportation tops the list with 17% of the votes. This includes road improvements, buses, traffic police, public transport, regulated parking, etc.
Next on the list are water and sanitation, and public spaces, with 15% and 13% of the votes respectively. The increasing green concerns have got a 12% vote share. Issues of governance rank quite low, with just 9% of the votes so far (see box for complete list).
The site is a part of the Net Citizen initiative of Mapunity.
