Karnataka Urban Development Minister B.A. Basavaraj and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta, on Saturday, inspected Pai Layout, Kaggadasapura bund areas, and several areas of which, especially 16th Cross, was badly affected by the recent spate of heavy rains.
The Minister directed BBMP to clear the silt and blockage from the drain so that the problem is resolved permanently. Drones will be used to conduct a survey and a report will be submitted soon.
According to residents, every time it rains, water from the Kaggadasapura lake bund area gushes into the layout due to a blockage in the rajakaluve. “As a result, water enters the layout from BWSSB’s pipelines,” they said.
Minister Basavaraj and Chief commissioner directed officials to plan for the permanent solution.
Mahadevapura Joint Commissioner Venkatachalapthy, West Zone JC KR Pallavi, Chief Engineer’s BS Prahallad, Suguna, Parameshwar, BT Mohan Krishna and other officials were present
