Have more women Ministers

Sir, — Women are equal to men in all respects and, therefore, should have 50 per cent of the seats and not 33 per cent as being suggested now. The Prime Ministers and Chief Ministers, who advocate the cause of women, should induct into their Cabinet more women members.

Two-tier system

for student pass

Sir, — During July, the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) starts issuing student passes valid from July to April (10 months). Except professional courses, the academic year of all other courses begins from June. Professional courses begin only from August. Thus, students of professional courses lose two to three months' benefit, as they cannot use the pass. Apart from paying Rs. 870 for the pass, they have to spend money on tickets to commute to their college. I urge the BMTC to introduce a two-tier system for issuing bus pass — one for students of professional courses and one for students of non-professional courses to avoid this problem.

Jurisdiction of police stations

Sir, — It is strange that the Banaswadi Police Station is not located in Banaswadi, but is in Kamannahalli limits. It is stranger that Ulsoor Gate Police Station is near Bangalore Mahanagara Palike. I also suggest that every police station put up a notice board outside the station with the areas coming under its jurisdiction, the telephone numbers, and names of the police officials. There should also be a police outpost in areas that are far away from the main police stations. I urge the Police Commissioner to look into the matter.

Infrastructure development

Sir, — It is heartening to note that the Government is taking up infrastructure development in three stages. However, the three-stage plans are focussing on Airport Road, Hosur Road and Bannerghatta Road. There is no mention of Old Madras Road and Hoody-Airport Road. The Government is also planning to convert the NGEF-Benniganahalli Road into six lanes. However, the underpass is so narrow that it can only handle three-lane traffic. If this is not widened immediately there will be no end to traffic jams on this stretch. The Government should look beyond IT clusters and improve infrastructure in other parts of Bangalore too.
