Katta flooded with Dasarahalli's woes -Bangalore-Cities-The Times of India
Bangalore: It was a replay of recent visits by ministers to areas lacking in basic civic infrastructure. On Saturday, it was the turn of Katta Subramanya Naidu, minister for IT/BT, BWSSB and in charge of Bangalore North, to face residents' grievances over bad roads and irregular water supply.

Naidu visited the Dasarahalli constituency on Saturday, along with MLA Muniraju and officials of BBMP and BWSSB. The minister inspected ongoing work by the BBMP. Residents briefed him on persisting problems, including broken pipelines, poor water supply and battered roads.

Naidu said plans were on to ensure regular water supply in five wards in the area. He also distributed four-wheelers to nine beneficiaries.

Later in the day, Naidu, along with MLA S R Vishwanath, participated in the foundation stone-laying ceremony for various civil works planned on a budget of Rs 34 crore in Yelahanka. At the event, he detailed plans to implement infrastructure projects announced in the budget. He also urged the public to air their woes in public grievance meetings.
