Bengaluru: On the backdrop of the Pulse Polio campaign inauguration in the City, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta requested citizens to be the Palike’s eyes and alert him or the control room of potholes, flexes, and banners across the City.
He said that Regardless of the fact that the corporation is doing its duty, citizens are encouraged to provide information since the media had informed him that City roads still have potholes despite High Court order.
Gupta said he was informed that BBMP employees are not doing enough to remove flexes and banners that can be seen across the City.
Gupta responded by saying that the Zonal Commissioners and engineers have been told to be strict. The locations must be shared by citizens, and action will be taken. Engineers will also face consequences if they do not clear them, he added.
From February 27 to March 2, 2022, the BBMP and the Health Department will collaborate on a pulse polio immunisation campaign.
This year’s goal is to vaccinate 10,80,104 children under the age of five in 141 planning units in BBMP urban Primary Health Centres and 3,404 vaccination booths across 198 wards.
Over 15,000 staffers will be mobilised for the campaign, with dedicated teams visiting slums and places inhabited by migrant workers.
