BENGALURU: Chief minister Siddaramiah warned that all encroachments on storm water drains will be removed. Even influential and big builders are not spared.
On Monday CM was speaking to reporters after garlanding to former CM nijalingappa's statue in his death anniversary. He said the encroacher list might have big builders, influential person and other big wife. No one will be spared.
