BENGALURU: Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has decided to advance its deadline to stop sending garbage trucks to Mandur. The trucks will not go to Mandur from Friday itself.
After staging protests in July, the villagers finally agreed that they will allow trucks till November-end.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah too assured them of the same. Now, the Palike seems to have advanced the deadline by over a week.
Sridhar, a resident of Mandur, told Express that they have been informed that BBMP shall not send waste from Friday.
“About 65 trucks came to dump waste at our backyard on Thursday night. Those were the last ones. We can finally heave a sigh of relief,” he said.
BBMP sources said since the past four to five months they had been constantly working towards stopping waste disposal at Mandur. “We are happy that we could achieve this 10 days before the deadline. People had lost faith in us. We wanted to prove that we are not anti-public,” said an official.
