Bangalore, May 22: Government of Karnataka is now looking for stronger measures to safeguard the waterbodies. Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy said, "the fortunes of Bangalore's lakes could be turned around by handing them over to Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Bangalore Development Authority (BDA)".

Chief Minister said, "The Lake Development Authority (LDA) was entrusted with the rejuvenation of Puttenahalli Lake on a Rs Three-crore budget. However, not much is visible as on how the money has been spent,". He was addressing a gathering after inaugurating BDA's Kothanur-Konanakunte Road in J P Nagar.

He said the BBMP could take over the lakes coming under its purview and rejuvenate them, while BDA could do the same outside the BBMP peripheries.

CM pointed out that public participation had helped BDA complete the Kothanur-Konanakunte Road. Lauding residents on their involvement in the project, he said they could also take up environmental projects in the neighbourhood.
