It's raining promises in Pulakeshinagar - Bangalore - Cities - The Times of India
Better drinking water supply, new sewage lines, renovated markets. If BWSSB minister Katta Subramanya Naidu is to be
believed, a slew of civic measures are in store for residents of Pulakeshinagar.
The government has earmarked Rs 38 crore for road and drain work in this assembly constituency, he said. This apart, Rs 9.26 crore has been set aside for remodelling storm water drains. The minister has promised a periodic follow-up on the projects.
PROJECTS & PROMISES
* New borewells: One of the perennial problems here is lack of drinking water. Limited Cauvery water supply and non-functioning borewells are the reasons. There are 40-45 borewells in the area, but none of them work. Now, there are plans for 50 new borewells
* Healthcare: Renovation of Annasami Mudaliar Dispensary (near Moore Market) in the next 3-4 months; upgradation of Corporation Maternity Home on Bore Bunk Road built in 1962
* Markets: There was a plan to renovate Moore Market but it was stalled due to poor response to tenders. The minister has said BBMP will do the work now. A garbage dump next to a drain opposite the market will also be cleared
* Title deeds: Slum dwellers in Pottery Town have been promised title deeds within the next 15 days
