Citizens complained about over flowing drainages, rain water harvesting, solid waste management problems and pavement encroachment by vendors in their area. N S Mukunda secretary of Abhyudaya spoke about various unused tax sources.

After hearing citizens’ grievances Mayor assured them a solution very shortly. “In a meeting that was held at BBMP head office, we have instructed the engineers to find a permanent solution for SWM, drainage and sewage problem and pot holes in the roads in 37 days,” said Mayor.
