Save Trees, Save Bangaluru..,

By Siddu Kaloji
The hue and cry raised by handful residents and environment activists surrounding Lalbagh garden and Nanda Talkies road, Jayanagar 4th block, Bangaluru against the felling of trees to make way for the metro rail have failed to impress the government.

Government decision to go ahead with the project has further intensified the save environment campaign. Bangalore metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) officials have shown their inability to shift the stations to other place and re alignment.

It is very pain full to see decade old trees are being axed for metro rail project on Nanda Talkies road which is known for big trees and rose gardens both sides of the road. If these trees are cut, the beauty and canopy of this place could be vanished.

Residents surrounding Nanda road and environment lovers not against the project, they are against the tree felling. Government should respect the sentiments of the people. Already, thousands of trees felled all over the city on the name of road widening and development. Bangaluru, once known for clam and cool weather is on the verge of loosing its tag as Gardens City of India.

BMRCL officials feel that even a minor change in the plan in this juncture would cause many complications and further delay in implementation of the project. Already this Namma Metro project has been delayed for many reasons and cost of the project is also increased significantly.

It is the responsibility of the government to protect and enrich greenery of the Bangaluru. Otherwise, Bangaluru will become Singapore. But, we will loose Bangaluru.

The Hope..!

By Siddu Kaloji
Powered by the fine mix of youth and experience Congress has won battle for the 15th parliamentary elections. The People of India shown strong faith in the Congress led UPA and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh.

This verdict is the big lesson for communal BJP, anti development left and opportunistic parties. The hate campaign adopted by the bjp to attack the opposition and projecting Narendra Modi as prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 general elections and rift among the second rung of leaders caused dearly for saffron party in this election. It is poorest performance for BJP since 1991. L K Advani dream to become PM remains as dream.

The Nuke deal Blunder sinks leftists in West Bengal and Kerala. First time in last two decades left did very badly and have been reduced to half of the strength what they had in the 14th Loksabha. They have greater challenge ahead in the 2011 assembly elections.

Lalu and Ram Vilas Paswan, who betrayed the congress after enjoying all powers in the coalition government, washed out in Bihar and remain voiceless in the national politics. Prime ministerial aspirant and over ambitious Maya and Jaya also failed to impress with their performance.

The future Prime Minister of India Rahul Gandhi’s factor worked out infavour of Congress in this election. The young Gandhi not only motivated congress workers to strengthen the party at grass root level, he also inspired youth to join politics prior to the elections.

Congress party has emerged as clear winner in this election by securing more than 200 seats alone. Congress makes most of it from the losses of third and fourth fronts in many states, particularly UP, where it has improved its tally drastically. After this electoral success Rahul Gandhi became new sensation in the Congress party and he can become the leader of difference for India too!

The re jubilant Congress has the combination of both youth and experience and numbers as well to form and run the government smoothly without any pressures for next five years. Now people expect from this government development, development only development..!

Worst of Bangaluru..!

By Siddu Kaloji
Bangaluru is known for Information Technology, Pubs, Live bands and Cool Weather; all for positive faces of the City for outsiders. Recently, this garden City of India is making news for all negative reasons.

It is not good for any growing city, particularly Bangaluru which is having high potential of getting a place among elite cities of the world.

Today if you ask anyone to point out which are the two biggest menaces in the Bangalooru City? They can easily show finger towards road Traffic and vehicle parking system. Unfortunately, both problems are became part and parcel of Bangalureans life. But, one more serious problem has been added to the woes of Bangaluru, which can tarnish image of the city further is lost of faith and interest among the residents of Bangaluru in the democratic process.

Mere 46 per cent Bangaluru voters had turned up to cast their franchise in the recently concluded elections for the Parliament. More than 50 per cent eligible voters didn’t bother to use their constituentional right.

All efforts are gone in vain to motivate educated people of the City to cast their vote. Needless to say that, by skipping the voting, Bangalureans have missed an opportunity to elect the best among the worst to hope for better Society.

Now they have no choice to live up with the same old irritations, probably few more could be added in the next five years. Even they lost morale right to raise their voice and complain against any problems by wasting their invaluable vote.
