    Karnataka Deputy CM downplays Bengaluru's pothole menace, says only 940 remaining while activist pegs it at 8,000

    Taking a dig at Karnataka Deputy CM Dr G Parameshwara's claims of clearing 14,299 potholes out of 15,000 doting Bengaluru's streets and only 940 such potholes remaining, activist and BJP spokesperson NR Ramesh said that Bengaluru has over 8,000 such potholes and authorities have misled Dr Parameshwar on the burning civic apathy.

    Recently on July 18, Dr Parameshwar, who also happens to be the Bengaluru Development In-Charge Minister, claimed that out of 15,000 plus identified potholes that cause inconvenience to the public, over 14,000 potholes were covered on a war footing. And now only 940 such potholes remain which the minister said will be cleared soon. 

    However, activist Ramesh, who claims to have done a reality check in areas like Chamrajpet, Chikpet, Shivajinagar, Gandhinagar and Shanthinagar assembly segments, said that he found more than 1000 such potholes existing. He said that there are over 8000 potholes in Bengaluru. 

    During Siddaramaiah's tenure as CM, Rs 1,400 crores were released to develop Bengaluru roads. According to reports, Rs 16.88 crores alone was spent on potholes and remaining Rs 1,222 crores was given to road contractors for development works. Ramesh claimed that these works are of substandard quality and hence each time the potholes are cleared, it develops again with light rains. "I urge that all these contractors should be blacklisted a case should be booked against them," said Ramesh.
