BENGALURU: Chairperson of Infosys Foundation Sudha Murty held a meeting with Mayor G Goutham Kumar on Tuesday at the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike office, where she assured them that she would help the corporation in funding city projects.
A meeting was held to discuss developmental works required. BBMP sources said the Mayor asked for her help in funding important projects, including the widening of Hebbal flyover.
