Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said several residential localities in Bengaluru had to face flood-like situations due to ‘unplanned’ and ‘misrule’ of the previous Congress Government.
Talking to reporters at his R.T.Nagar residence here on Tuesday, he said the previous government recklessly gave permission to build houses, and apartments in tanks, tank bunds and in buffer zones. Congress was solely responsible for the present-day situation.
The CM said the previous Congress Government never thought about the management of tanks. But the incumbent government has taken it as a challenge and released Rs 1500 crore towards the construction of the much-needed Rajakaluve. On Monday, encroachments worth Rs 300 crore had been removed. Instructions are given that the construction quality of Rajakaluve must be good. A system will be made to ensure that there would be no problems with the free flow of water. At the same time, encroachment will not be allowed.
