BENGALURU: When can Bengalureans hope for potholes to be fixed? In 10 days. For that is the deadline BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad has set for his officers to fix all the potholes in the city. In an interview to Ashwini M Sripad, the Commissioner said that to meet the deadline, the officers are working from 10 pm to 3 am, when traffic is much less.
Their job doesn’t end there. Once a particular road is repaired, officers on the field have to send photographs from their GPS-enabled mobile phones to the Commissioner.On why Bengaluru roads have turned into hell after just a few spells of rain, he said it was not only the quality of asphalting, but because of digging by various agencies too. “But, at the end of the day, it is we who face people’s anger,” he said.
