Bengaluru: The removal of all encroachments has been ordered by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, who on Thursday September 1 visited five areas of Mahadevapura that were flooded due to the rains.

Bommai criticised the previous Congress – JD (S) government for encroachments and to wondered how officials had issued them licenses.

Speaking to the people of Mahadevapura, Bommai said, “The substandard work and corruption of previous governments has brought Bengaluru to this situation.”

Rs. 800 Crore were spent on storm water drains by the previous government (JD (S)-Congress alliance). Where did the money go? Rajakaluve encroachments took place 10 to 15 years ago. The previous governments are answerable to the public, even though we will bear the burden of evicting them.

Despite the fact that Bengaluru has been drawing investments, the city was not designed scientifically. Bengaluru was ignored for the past seven to ten years. To fix storm water drains, we have allocated Rs. 1,500 Crore,” said Bommai.

Bommai said that, regardless of how influential the violator, his government will begin a campaign to remove the encroachments.

“To build a road or a building, “all big builders of Bengaluru have encroached the drains.  As the Chief Minister, I say this. Encroachments are a topic of discussion whenever there is flooding. What were the officials doing when they issued licenses and now, they’re complaining about encroachments?” he questioned.
