I wholeheartedly welcome all the distinguished members present in Kempegowda council hall and zonal meeting halls for Budget meeting.
As I present the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike Budget for the year 2020-21 through video conference due to present unavoidable circumstances, it is my duty to remember and pay respect to the architect of Bengaluru City “Sri Nada Prabhu Kempegowda”.
Our Party has come to power in the final year of the Council term; I sincerely thank our beloved leader
Honourable Chief Minister of Karnataka Shri B.S.Yediyurappa and Revenue Minister of Karnataka Shri R. Ashok, for providing me an opportunity to presentthis budget.
I would also like to express my gratitude to Honourable Ministers of the city, Members of Parliament from Bengaluru, Members of Legislative Assembly, all councillors of BBMP and the Citizens of Bengaluru City and the voters of my constituency for their valuable guidance and encouragement in preparing this Budget.
Before I deliberate on the details of this budget, I wish to highlight the growth of Bengaluru city.
Situated at 949 metres above sea level, erstwhile known as Bendakalooru, was envisioned and designed by Sri Nada Prabhu Kempegowda in the year 1537. Thearchitect Kempegowda established pillars in four directions symbolising the city limits, which exist even today. Thereafter, during the reign of Mysore Maharajas, Bengaluru city received a touch of modernisation and has grown exponentially as 5th largest city of the country and world’s continuous and fastest growing city.
Bengaluru has become engine of growth for the economy of Karnataka. The city has witnessed all-round growth beyond our expectations, posing a major challenge to Palike to provide its citizens basic amenities. In this backdrop, I feel it is the duty of both State and Central Government to earmark greater share of financial assistance for comprehensive growth of the city.
Comprehensive development of Bengaluru city can be envisioned when it provides sustainable environment, infrastructure, health and education, safety and security to citizens, affordable housing especially for poor, robust IT connectivity, sports and other facilities. For such all round
development, I humbly request honourable Chief Minister to provide more grants.
In the direction of providing basic infrastructure to citizens of Bengaluru city, priority is given for development of major roads, storm water drains and lakes for which a grant of Rs.8344 Crores is earmarked in the Government budget over a period of 3 years under “Mukhyamantrigala Nava Nagaroththana” scheme. This was made possible by
Honourable Chief Minister Shri B.S. Yediyurappa and Honourable Revenue Minister Shri R. Ashok Government of Karnataka, for which I whole heartedly convey regards on behalf of Palike and citizens of Bengaluru.
For extending support, valuable guidance, suggestion and encouragement in preparing people friendly budget, I convey my gratitude to Shri Tejasvi Surya, Member of Parliament, Bengaluru South Constituency, Shri S.R. Vishwanath, Political Secretary to Chief Minister,Worshipful Mayor Shri M. Goutham Kumar, Deputy Mayor Shri C.R. Ramamohan Raju, Ruling Party Leader Shri K.A. Muneendra Kumar, Leader of Opposition Party Shri Abdul Wajid, Leader of JD (S) Party Smt. Nethra Narayan, allChairmen of Standing Committees, all members of the
