Bengaluru: The Karnataka High Court rebuked Bengaluru’s civic body, BBMP, for failing to fill potholes in the city.
A division bench of acting Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum said, “You see potholes only on Kumara Krupa Road, the road in front of seven ministers’ bungalows. But you don’t see potholes of other localities, where the common man lives.”
The bench further said, “BBMP shall also ensure that quality work is maintained while filling up the potholes because it is noticed that the pothole which is filled up, again becomes a pothole after about 2 to 3 months.” It also asked for a status report within two weeks.
The counsel for BBMP said that it had entered into an agreement with a single agency to fill up potholes and that this was being done every day.
The bench was hearing a petition filed by Vijayan Menon in 2015. The matter will be heard again on November 15.
Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had also assured that the government will come out with a permanent solution to improve the quality of roads in low-lying areas.
He said that a task force has been formed to study the quality of roads, including when a road was laid and the quality of work undertaken.
