BANGALORE: The new Mayor of the city, S K Nataraj, has called for a meeting on Monday, April 26, to take stock of the ongoing development works.
“I have called for a meeting on Monday of Executive Engineers and above to check on the works being undertaken in the city,” Nataraj said.
He added there would be another meeting once the standing committees were decided. He said crucial issues, such as traffic, sewage, drains and water supply, would be discussed in the meeting.
The Mayor told Express he would inspect the works himself to ensure proper implementation. He noted that some of the recently-laid roads had already started chipping after rains. He said contractors whose work was below par would be asked to re-do it without extra payment. Such contractors would then be blacklisted, he said.
Nataraj said that he would require at least two years to achieve anything close to what he would like to change in Bangalore and to restore its fading glory.
