Bengaluru, July 1: As BBMP elections are scheduled to be held on Tuesday, July 28, Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar has launched a campaign called "Big Bengaluru Fight", ahead of the crucial elections.

- It is an effort to clean up city governance and usher in transparency in the functioning of Government.
- The Big Bengaluru Fight seeks the active involvement of Bengalureans in the fight towards reclaiming the city by addressing the key issues- the failure of Government, takeover of planning and development by vested interests at the cost of millions of Bengalureans, the decline of our neighborhoods and to push for reforming and changing the Government and the way agencies work - from exploiting the city to serving the city's citizens.
- The Big Bengaluru Fight seeks to expose city issues and reclaim city governance, through mobilizing like- minded NGOs and engaging citizens by partnering with the media and seeking judicial intervention, if necessary.
