BENGALURU: This Kannada Rajyotsava, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is planning to remove garbage black spots from the city in a unique way. The Palike is organising a rangoli festival, where Pourakarmikas will not just clear black spots, but also draw rangolis to stop people from littering on roads. 

Even while the High Court is lashing out at BBMP for not keeping the city clean and has given it a deadline till October 31, BBMP authorities are struggling hard. Now, the authorities have planned a week-long Rangoli festival from November 1, where BBMP officials will identify five black spots in each ward, which means close to 1,000 black spots in city will be chosen.

Pourakarmikas coming under these wards will not just remove waste from these spots, but will also draw rangoli, thus discouraging the public to throw waste on roads,’’ release from BBMP said.
However, at some places, pourakarmikas have already started clearing the black spots and drawing rangoli.  
BBMP official sources said they have installed CCTV cameras at some of the black spots. People come and throw waste at night when there is less light. “CCTV cameras are not helpful,’’ sources said.
