HIGHLIGHTS

  • Karnataka Congress has launched ‘Better Bengaluru Action Plan Committee’
  • The party has sought people’s opinion to improve the infrastructure of Bengaluru
  • The move comes amid the recent flood situation in Bengaluru

The Karnataka Congress on Tuesday launched an action plan committee seeking public opinion to improve the infrastructure of Bengaluru.

The ‘Better Bengaluru Action Plan Committee’ was launched by state Congress president DK Shivakumar. He requested people to participate in large numbers and share their opinion on suggestionsfornammabengaluru@gmail.com.

DK Shivakumar said the Committee will prepare the blueprint for Bengaluru’s future. The suggestions of the public might be included in the Congress manifesto in the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) election and next year’s Karnataka Assembly polls.

Former Bengaluru Development Minister Ramalinga Reddy has been named as the chairman of the committee. The panel also includes former Bengaluru development ministers G Parmeshwar and KJ George, MLAs Krishna Byre Gowda, NA Harris, former mayors Padmavati and Gangambike, and former Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Gowda.

The Congress has launched this initiative as the ruling BJP government in Karnataka faces criticism over the handling of the recent rain and flood situation in Bengaluru. Several areas of the city were flooded, especially in the IT hub, due to incessant rainfall.

On Tuesday, the BBMP intensified its anti-encroachment drive and razed down illegal structures that prevented water flow and led to flooding in certain areas.
