Writing to the Chief Minister regarding the Breach of Hulimavu lake, MP demanded identification and action against those responsible for the damage caused.
The breach was caused by the criminal negligence of the contractor who was carrying out some work on the lake without taking any precautionary measures. The contractor allegedly carried out repair work without approval or sanction of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). This incident has been caused by the utter negligence of contractor and complete absence of supervision by the Civic authorities BBMP or BDA.
As a result, hundreds of cars, bikes and houses have been damaged and valuables lost. This loss of property and trauma caused the citizens are entirely due to criminal lapse of the contractors and officials.
CM must immediately order a detailed enquiry into the matter and identify everyone responsible for this negligence and hold them accountable for this criminal negligence and action were taken against them.
Compensation must be given to those whose property and vehicles have been damaged. Costs for this compensation must be borne by the contractor and officials found guilty.
