While people were struggling through heaps of toxins to get back home in Bellandur, the ruling party in Karnataka, the Congress was resting after a busy day of Indira canteen inauguration. The feeble fence that was erected last year to contain the foam was rendered helpless, much like the politicians who have failed miserably to save the lake and the people from the lake's fury.
