Two months ago, the BBMP had demolished an illegal property on government land in Bismillah Nagar resulting in piling up of building debris. Consequently, an interlinking road between Bismillah Nagar and SG Palya has been blocked for over two months now.

When City Express visited the place, residents and commuters shared their grievances. Says Mohammad Akram, a businessmen in the vicinity, “The situation is much better now compared to last month. At least two wheelers can ply.”

On the other hand, Rakesh Povanna, a resident says, “Since this is an alter- native route to escape the main road traffic, many a time, people take this route and subsequently get stuck up here.”

However, BBMP Joint Commissioner, South Zone, Trilok Chandra says, “We do not intend to block the road but the alleged owners whose property was demolished have acquired a stay on the issue, hence, the stalemate continues.”

To this argument by the BBMP, another resident Mustak Rehman says, “The respondents got a stay only recently. The BBMP could have cleared the road right after the demolition operation. We are only asking them to clear the public pathway. It is so risky, in one instance, a biker was about to fall as he skidded.”

Highlighting a related issue plaguing this area, Leena Parthy, a housewife says, “Nearby, there is a garbage dumping spot which used to be cleared by BBMP regularly but due to the blocked road even that has been hampered.”
