BJP seeks action on Raja Rao report

Special Correspondent

Bangalore: The Bangalore city unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has asked for immediate action on the recommendations of the Captain Raja Rao Committee's report on the state of city roads and ways to build better roads.

Senior party leader K.N. Subba Reddy said the three-man committee formed following directions from the Karnataka High Court had submitted its report a month ago but the Mayor claimed it had not reached her yet. The Chief Minister, who holds the city development portfolio, was also indifferent to it.

"The Capt. Raja Rao Committee, which included a former chief engineer, is known to have gone in detail about the entire process of selecting contractors for road works. It had asked for BMP engineers to monitor ongoing works and ensure quality is maintained. The report should be treated as a guideline for providing better roads. The Government and the ruling party in the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BMP) show utter indifference to the report and its implications,'' Mr. Reddy told presspersons.

The BJP city unit President, Ashwathnarayan, said, "We still have faith in the Mayor that she may act against erring engineers and contractors."
