The BBMP’s inaction has led to unauthorised constructions on a storm water drain (SWD) in ward No 48 of Muneshwara Nagar in the city, claimed Udayashankar, an RTI activist.

Addressing reporters on Wednesday, he said, “The sketch of survey no 3, 4 and 5 in Devarajeevanahalli of Pulikeshinagar shows the existence of the drain. But today, there are buildings, houses and shopping complexes on top of it”.

Officials including the BBMP Chief Engineer (SWD), Jayanagar, BBMP Additional Commissioner (BBMP East), Executive Engineer (SWD), BBMP Central office and BBMP Executive Engineer (Pulikeshinagar) were approached but in vain, Udayashankar said.

“Instead of executing the high court’s direction to clear encroachments, the BBMP has colluded with the transgressors. Their delay in taking action has assisted many offenders in obtaining stay order. The encroachment is causing dengue and malaria to spread in the area”, he alleged.
