Shetty Halli res­i­dents get Cau­very wa­ter

Evening Today - - FRONT PAGE -

Bengaluru: Over 1000 homes that were added into Bruhat Bengaluru Ma­hana­gara Pa­like lim­its in 2007 had to un­dergo a long wait to get a Cau­very wa­ter con­nec­tion. The res­i­dents say they have been pur­su­ing BBMP of­fi­cials, local MLA and cor­po­ra­tors in the last ten years to get Cau­very wa­ter.

Ini­tially, Shetty Halli which is in the newly carved BBMP Dasara­halli zone was self­suf­fi­cient in terms of wa­ter sup­ply, but af­ter the real es­tate boom, the ground­wa­ter ta­ble re­duced dras­ti­cally, forc­ing res­i­dents to lit­er­ally beg the tanker mafia for reg­u­lar sup­ply of wa­ter.

“Over 1000 homes in Raghaven­dra Lay­out were ea­gerly await­ing the pipe lay­ing work to be com­plete. Af­ter I was elected to the BBMP in 2015, I took the files with Bengaluru Wa­ter Sup­ply and Sew­er­age Board to has­ten the process and to sup­ply Cau­very wa­ter un­der stage V of the project. The draw­ing of con­nec­tion from Cau­very pipes is fin­ished and to­day we in­au­gu­rated by switch­ing the mo­tor on. Hence­forth there will be reg­u­lar Cau­very wa­ter sup­ply here,” said Nagab­hushan, Shetty Halli Cor­po­ra­tor.

Raghaven­dra Lay­out As­so­ci­a­tion mem­ber Ru­dresh said, the res­i­dents had to un­dergo hell in the last five years as the roads were dug up for pipe lay­ing.
