Bengaluru: The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Chief Commissioner promised the High Court that he will ensure that a proper work plan is prepared for filling or repairing potholes in the main business district, using proper technology and making the most of automatic pothole-filling machines that were previously used.
Gaurav Gupta, who was in court for another case (public interest litigation on garbage), sought one week to submit a new plan.
The hearing has been postponed to March 15 by a division bench led by Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi. The bench has earlier asked the BBMP about why appropriate technology is not being used to fill potholes and why the use of the machine is restricted. Counsel for BBMP said that there is only one machine (python) available in Bengaluru, and only two in the entire country.
