BANGALORE: Even as rescue operations continue, residents of numerous apartments in the area may have to put up with problems for some more time.

The residents, mostly techies, are hoping that BBMP’s eyes are opened to the pathetic condition of Bannerghatta Road.

“BBMP does not care about the footpath and it is perhaps the last thing on the officials’ mind. Worse, when they begin some work, they leave it incomplete posing risks to pedestrians. How many deaths will it take before they learn the value of people’s lives?” asked Sumangala, a housewife and resident of one of the apartments in Ranka Colony.

Techies commuting on Bannerghatta Road say that whenever it rains heavily, the road turns into a slush pool. “I am scared to commute on this road when it rains. What if my family or I become a victim?” Madhusudhan, a software engineer, asked.

“Can you spot a single streetlight along this stretch? All they have by way of a barricade is a thin tape covering the gaps in the road,” said Prakash, who own a department store in the locality.
