The bad condition of roads and pavements in Bharatinagar is a classic example of the Bangalore Mahanagara Palike's (BMP) apathy.
The civic body's lethargy, coupled with rains, have left the residents of this area in a lurch. A combination of bad roads, choked drains, overflowing garbage bins, stray-dogs, and mosquitoes is fast degenerating the area into a slum. The all-pervasive stench makes it impossible to walk on the streets.
A walk through Narayana Pillai Street, Seppings Road, Thimmaiah Road, Mackan Road, and Nala Road is a telltale evidence of lack of garbage clearance system in the area.
This despite the job being entrusted to private garbage contractors for cleaning. Garbage is strewn all over on the main roads, street corners, and even in front of schools.
The entrance to the Government Model Tamil Primary School is blocked with debris and scattered garbage.
The residents, who were used to a clean environment during the former corporator, M.Paree's tenure, are irked at the present area corporator, Nazreena Naaz Mujeeb's attitude.
"She has not visited the area even once after the elections. How can we blame the officialdom if the elected representative does not have any concern for the area.
She is irresponsible and we have realised that we were wrong in electing her," said A.Vinod Kumar, a resident.
All that the residents want is a clean neighbourhood. And, they have urged the Mayor, C.M.Nagaraj, and the BMP Commissioner, M.R.Sreenivas Murthy, to inspect the area and direct officials to take stock of things.
