There is a tussle between the BBMP and the Highways department ever since the Kanakapura road has scaled up as NH209.
My photograph of the problematic area was published in the Times of India on 18th December, 2008, followed by a mail to the chief minister, the commissioner of BBMP and the Director of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in Delhi.
The chief minister forwarded my mail to the chief secretary for his ‘action and reply’. There lies the matter.
Walking and crossing the signal to catch a bus or to shop is a nightmare for all, especially senior citizens.
All we ask is just repair the footpath. Is that too much?
