The footage, which was first uploaded by X user @Vishwa0507, showed trash mounds beside Bengaluru’s Outer Ring Road. Waterlogging is seen in front of a bus stop near the end of the film.

Horrible sight. Shaw posted on X, “@BBMPSWMSplComm needs to move quickly to clean up this unsightly mess.

The video was shared on May 14 and has over 47,500 views. A lot of people criticized the BBMP officials. One commenter said, “This is the tragic scenario in every tier 1 and tier 2 city,” in response to the video. Since there are no public trash cans, people will dispose of their rubbish wherever they like. This will continue unless local government entities install, enforce the use of, and maintain the #publictrashbins.

“This is near Mathikere’s Outer Ring Road,” remarked a different user. Nothing new about this place—it’s always been like way!” “This is visible in most of the city, drains are not cleaned, and water is overflowing on the road,” a third person commented.

On May 12, Bengaluru experienced considerable rain in some areas of the city, providing some respite from the heat. Numerous locations, including Electronic City, Hosur Main Road, Arekere, Jayanagar, Banashankari, and Bannerghatta Road, have reportedly experienced waterlogging. Due to waterlogging, commuters in this area should expect slow-moving traffic, according to Bengaluru traffic police.
