Bengaluru: After several complaints from the public as well as media reports on potholes in the Bengaluru city, the BBMP has has set December 10 as the deadline to fix the problem. Officials were present on site Saturday night and early Sunday morning, which was evident that the work on filling potholes has been taken seriously.
Speaking to the media persons, G Kumara Naik, BBMP Commissioner said, “We are trying our best to maintain roads and fill the potholes as fast as possible. The work was carried out in the wee hours, but we cannot control the rains.”
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahangara Palike has fully acknowleged the fact that the roads are in bad condition and promised to finish the repair work at the earliest.
However, this is the second time in a month that BBMP has set a deadline for fixing potholes. The earlier date to fill the potholes was November 1.
The reasons cited by the BBMP for missing the deadline was the unpredicatable rains. Minister of Bengaluru Development KJ George went around the city on Saturday night, along with the Mayor BN Manjunath Reddy, to personally monitor the repair work that commenced on Thursday.
