Bengaluru: “Though I had set a deadline for BBMP officials to fill all the potholes, due to the continuous rainfall they are unable to meet the deadline”, said District-in-charge minister Ramalinga Reddy during his second inspection to find potholes in East division in the city.

However surprisingly, Reddy said that he could find only two potholes after taking a tour across Ulsoor, Murphy Town, Hoysala Nagar, Old Madras Road, BEML Junction and NGEF. While he spotted a pothole at Vijayanagar arch in BEML Junction, another was seen in C.V Raman Nagar, he said.

Moreover he said that the potholes in the city were due to the past week’s rains. Pothole repair works are in progress across the city, and no matter how difficult, the city will be pothole free in the next few weeks,” he assured.

Reddy also monitored garbage management and conditions of roads in Ulsoor ward, Hoysala Nagar ward and BEML Junction. Noticing that piles of garbage were dumped on main road and was also burnt in a storm water drain in Ulsoor Road, the Minister suspended Srinivas, an assistant engineer (ward no 99) and levied Rs 50,000 fine on the ward contractor.

Later, he directed Chief Engineer Prasad to go on punishment leave for 10 days and asked him to monitor works.
