BANGALORE: Ramaswamypalya Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) ward is popularly known as R S Palya. When we visited Ramaswamypalya, we found many banners and sign boards being put up by the residents at every street, stating not to dump garbage. While the main roads were in a satisfactory condition, the adjoining streets were in a poor state.

Francis, an employee of ANZ Bank and a resident of Marappa Garden said, “The streets here were asphalted many years ago. As the years passed, the tar on road started to wear out. Now this road needs some attention’.

For instance at 3rd cross, R S Palya, near Sadashiva Temple Road, the concrete drainage slabs which links the two roads are in the worst possible condition.

The residents complained that they find it difficult to walk over it.

The ward had its share of water problems too. Aarthi, a resident of the ward said, “We have to cross three streets to fetch drinking water.

With the limited time available in the morning, we need to fetch water before going to office. With the summer around the corner, there will be huge rush for water, at the public taps too. Measures should be taken to ensure more water supply to the ward.”Some residents bought our attention to the loose connection of wires at some electric posts.

They wanted it to be set right immediately.“The corporator can arrange to get saplings and get them planted across the ward. Programmes like Vanamahotsava should be taken up,” opined the residents. The ward corporator N Chandra was not available for comments.
