The first public meeting organised by BBMP Commissioner on Saturday witnessed discussion on menace related to rats, snakes, mosquitoes and cows.

Gopala Krishna of Padmanabhanagar Residents’ Welfare Association said that there was no dry-waste collection centre at their constituency which is represented by Deputy Chief Minister R Ashok. He also said that they do not have space to set up wet waste processing units. “Residents are ready to segregate waste. There are many vacant sites where snakes take shelter in anthills. BBMP should bring this under control,” he suggested.

Dr Meenakshi Bharath, social activist, advised resident welfare association members to segregate waste and give wet waste to cows. Each cow has a capacity to consume 35 kgs of wet waste per day. Commissioner Rajneesh Goel said that they have tied up with six major goshalas in Bangalore.

“The wet waste generated from our market will be sent to these goshalas which will be a good fodder for cows,” he said.

Gajendra, a resident of Ankamma Road said that due to garbage they are facing rat menace.

“Rats have entered our washing machine. Will BBMP help us tackle this and save our machine?” he asked. He also said that there was mosquito menace.
