Mar 2007-The Hindu : Karnataka / Bangalore News : Private water suppliers fleece residents in city

The Hindu : Karnataka / Bangalore News : Private water suppliers fleece residents in city: "
Kanta Bagri Laxminarayan, a resident of 3rd Stage, AECS Layout in Sanjaynagar, spends nothing less than Rs. 3,000 a month on water supplied by eight to 10 tankers she needs. This whopping amount is apart from her regular Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) bill of Rs. 300.Usha Gururaj, president of Sapphire Nest Owners' Association in Thippasandra, who is entirely dependent on private tanker supply, spends Rs. 600 a month. 'There are 28 flats in our apartment complex and we buy two to three tankers every day. The supplier charges us Rs. 200 a tanker because we have been his customers for years,' she said.Similar is the case with Sapna K., a resident of Lal Bahadur Shastri Nagar near HAL in K.R. Puram. Her family has an arrangement with a friend to whose house they go once a week to stock up drinking water.

I am a resident of Dasarahalli Bangalore. Here the main road is so pathetic that it is asphalted in some places and a nightmare for the users causing air pollution too.I do not understand why one single road is given many contractors whereas the interior roads are asphalted end to end.the drains flow on to the roads. the citizens are complacent so are the authorities i guess. when do we travel without cursing the roads and the system?
