Focus on strengthening Bahujan Samaj party at Booth Level.
The BSP Candidates and all the state leaders may campaig on the high rate of inflation of both BJP and Congress, JD(S) and criticis the national NDA and United Progressive Alliance for encouraging terrorism.
The Bahujan Samaj party may call on the voters to give the party a chance in Karnataka.
But the main election plank of the party must be the betrayal of the BJP, Congress and JD(S)
and the bad budgets presented by the BJP and Congress.
Both the BJP, the Congress and JD(S) parties pledged to reign in
prices, improve the infrastructure of the state and provide stable
governments but failed.
Chickpet constituency, carved out during delimitation from parts of
Basavanagudi, Chamarajpet and Jayanagar, is one of oldest business
districts in Bangalore, home to thriving market places frequented by
thousands. Yet, even as it is possibly one of the highest contributing
areas to the state exchequer, the area is plagued by archaic civic
problems, as well as others that are brought upon by the conflict
between commercial interests and residential living. From choked roads,
traffic bottlenecks and lack of parking spaces to choked drains, garbage
problems, pollution and sanitation woes, the constituency seems to be
crying out for an overhaul.
Key Issues of the constituency
Key issues range from the pressing and local- traffic, congestion,
drainage, sanitation, affordable housing, public spaces and water- to
the more global, including FDI in retail and the destruction of small
Traffic and access top that list. Congestion in the entire City
Market area is abysmal, with no footpaths for pedestrians that have not
already been claimed by vendors. This includes Avenue Road, BVK Iyengar
Road, and the areas around Mamulpet, Sultanpet, Kalasipalya and
Dharmarayaswamy Temple. While residents claim that vendors are
responsible for access and parking issues, vendors complain that it is
the lack of both that are driving the customers away, despite the
competitive prices offered. Pedestrians are forced to face vehicular
traffic head on, with no pedestrian crossings.
Chickpete inherits an ancient drainage system, with its blocked and
leaking sewerage lines. Sudhamanagar’s open drains have posed a serious
health risk to residents in the area, while the footpaths from Basappa
Circle towards Shivananda Circle are built on the open drains. Arcot
Srinivasachar Street, an arterial road that connects the major markets,
is witness to open drainage and indiscriminate dumping of garbage.
Public toilets in the Arumugam Mudaliar Road in Kalasipalya,
constructed in 1994, have been encroached upon by local goons who have
turned the public property into private parking lots, threatening to kill the ward councillor who had attempted to reconstruct the facilities.
Other issues include illegal construction, water contamination and an impending water shortage.
Scams and electoral issues:
Chickpet also saw a 400-crore fraud
surface in the award and non-completion of civic projects since 2008,
with the active collusion of contractors and corporators. The projects
included remodelling of drains near K R Market and construction of
Avenue Road, with the bills cleared hastily without the necessary
clearances, while there is no evident progress on the ground.
In March 2013, Bangalore Mayor PR Ramesh accused the BJP of deleting
a huge number of voters from the Chickpet Constituency electoral
register, tilting last year’s BBMP poll in its favour. He said that
while voters in all the seven BBMP wards as present during the 2010 BBMP
elections totalled 2,33,533, the rolls published by the Chief Electoral
Officer in January 2013 contained only 1,70,529 voters. He alleged that
either bogus votes were added for political gain, or people have been
deprived of their right to vote in the more recent version.
Chickpet also saw a major 400-crore fraud
surface, “allegedly perpetrated in civic projects in Chickpet assembly
constituency by a nexus of contractors and corporators.” The trail of
the scam turned cold with the files pertaining to the same vanishing.The
contracts relate to works like remodelling of drains near KR Market and
construction of Avenue Road pavement taken up in the constituency since
2008. While work hardly showed any progress on the ground, the bills
were cleared in a jiffy. There has also been no clarity on whether
necessary clearances were obtained before clearing the bills.
Chickpet includes the wards Akkipete (P), Sowrashtrapete, Balepete,
Chickpete (P), Anchepete, Huriupete, Mamoolpete, Ballapurpete,
Cubbonpete, Ramanpete and K G Extension.
Incumbent MLA’s performance
The BJP’s Dr. D. Hemachandra Sagar won
the 2008 elections, securing 40,252 votes, out of the total vote base
of 2,08,178. In second place was R. Devaraj of the Congress, who lagged
behind by a margin of 7281 votes, securing 32,971. There was only 48%
voter turnout in the 2008 elections.
Sagar’s performance as an MLA draws a blank. Besides taking pride in
organising ‘mass marriages’, Aadhar card drives, Sagar claims to have
built concrete structures for slum residents in Sudhama Nagar. However,
Citizen Matters has not verified these claims. Residents accuse him of
inaccessibility, indifference to civic issues and unwillingness to
undertake crucial infrastructural projects. However, he tried his best
to apprise people about the works done by him.
Far more dire is his record as a politician. Sagar stands accused in a
massive land denotification scam alongside tainted CM Yedyurappa. As
chairman of Sagar Health Group, one of the main shareholders in Sahyadri
Health Care and Diagnostics Private Limited (SHC&DPL), Sagar allegedly paid
the company Rs 3.35 crore in the form of share application for
denotifying his land in survey number 121 of Uttarahalli village. This
land had been notified for the formation of Banashankari Vth stage
residential layout. In effect, Sagar abused his official position and ensured that the possession of the land was not taken over by the BDA, causing the exchequer a loss of over Rs 175 crore.
Candidate profiles – Elections 2013
The BJP’s efforts to dissociate itself from Yeddyurappa’s tainted
shadow resulted in Sagar not getting ticket this time. The allotting of
ticket to Uday Garudachar was met with little resentment among the party
workers, except for a minor protest by supporters of
Rajarajeshwarinagar MLA M Srinivas at the party office.
Garudachar-owned Maverick Holdings is currently facing two Lokayukta
enquiries. The first pertains to illegal construction on the land given
to it by the BBMP to construct a public lot – the wholly commercial
structure better-known as Garuda Mall.This mall has also encroached on land beyond its boundaries, constructed additional floors, housed additional shops and evaded rent and revenue payments to the BBMP, while refusing inspection. The second pertains to the award of the contract for construction of affordable housing for the residents of EWS Quarters in Ejipura,
who were evicted from their homes in January 2013 without any
rehabilitation. However, Garudachar claims to be having a ‘soft corner
for these slum guys.’. For a full interview with Garudachar, click here.
Among other candidates, JD(S) candidate M C Narayan Gowda has
acquired notoriety with his run-ins with the Lokayukta, being accused of
disproportionate assets. Congress candidate R Devaraj, who lost by a
margin of 7,000 votes in 2008, is possibly looking to ride in on the
strong anti-incumbency and minority vote.

Chickpet has 1,87,508 voters, as of the list released on 17 April
2013 by the Election Commission. It remains to be seen if there is any
one, strong candidate to emerge blemishless, curry popular favour and
rise to the real challenges that Chickpet poses.
It is also known for its residential organizations as there are 2 active
resident welfare associations in the area.
Localities in the ward include Bhuvaneshwari Nagar, Maruthi Nagar, C.V.

160 ಸರ್ವಜ್ಞ ನಗರ / Sarvagnanagar
Sarvagnanagar is lagging behind in infrastructure. The foremost of problems faced by residents is that of drinking water.
Commonly, Cauvery water is supplied twice a week to these areas. If that
falls short, residents are forced to depend on private water suppliers.
Another complaint with regard to water supply is the lack of pressure.
Water does not come in full force due to the terrain in this
But it isn’t just water that’s a problem here. Garbage collection too
is an issue. While the garbage trucks are irregular, heaps of garbage
in street corners are a common sight. The local MLA says that out of the
eight new contractors who were appointed, only four have commenced work
in Maruti Seva Nagar, Lingarajapuram, Kacharkanahalli and HBR layout.
In the remaining wards,
Kammanahalli, K G Halli, Banaswadi and Nagawara, the contractors are yet to begin work.
Sewage and drains
Several residents of Sarvagnanagar also complain about the sewage
system. Low-lying areas like Nagawara and K G Halli see flooding during
the rainy season. Rainwater mixed with sewage water enters homes.
Clement F Martin, a resident of Kacharkanahalli, says that he and his
neighbours spend Rs 1500 every three months to get the sewage pipes on
their street cleaned. “The underground sewage pipe is about 12 to 13
years old. During the rains, water gets mixed with sewage and it floods
our houses”. Martin says despite several complaints a new pipe has not
Traffic is another cause for concern in this constituency.
Sarvagnanagar connects the southern parts of the city to the
international airport. It has also become a thickly populated area. So
the number of vehicles moving through the area is increasing. The roads
are not wide enough to withstand the traffic. Traffic jams are quite
common the Banaswadi flyover and Lingarajapuram flyover. Tannery Road,
Nagavara Main Road and Kammanahalli Main Road are narrow but see a
huge number of vehicles every day. The heavy traffic density also
makes it unsafe for pedestrians to cross the road. In several places,
proper footpaths are not there, forcing pedestrians to walk on the road.
The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd
(BMRCL) seems firm that it will build a Metro station at near the
Madina Masjid grounds on New Bamboo Bazaar Road under the Phase-2
project, but local residents are strongly opposed to the idea.
Undaunted, Metro authorities say they will convince the residents about
the need to have the station there.
Metro authorities have even started soil
testing at the grounds adjacent to the masjid in Pulakeshinagar ward.
But local residents, representatives of a religious institution, vendors
and others are opposing it. They are now planning to start a campaign
demanding that BMRCL stick to its original plan of having the station
close to Cantonment railway station.
“We are clueless. Nobody approached us.
Neither did they consult us before taking such a decision nor did we ask
for a Metro station here,’’ said a member of Bamboo Bazar
Residents Welfare Association.
A resident of
Bharathinagar too echoed similar thoughts. “They should have at least
consulted us. After all, it is we who use the service and not officials.
They cannot decide on the alignment according to their whims and
fancies,’’ he said.There are at least four schools in the vicinity
of the grounds. The roughly 2-acre plot is the only open playground in
the locality. “All these years, we used this grounds for various
occasions including sports meets, annual days and other occasions. If an
underground Metro station comes here, the vast area will be shrunk and
they will not allow us to use this space anymore due to security
reasons. Where should be go?’’ a school teacher
who works in one of the schools asked.
“During Ramzaan and other special
occasions, the ground is used for offering prayers. If a Metro station
comes here, the masjid structure will be damaged. People across the
locality come here to offer prayers. This is a sentimental issue,’’ said
a person who works with the masjid.
Additional Chief Secretary (Urban
Development) Mahendra Jain, however, defended the government’s
decision. “Bamboo Bazaar is thickly populated area and more people will
be benefited if the station come up here rather than Cantonment area,’’
he said.On his part, BMRCL Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola said
Metro authorities will go visit the area in the coming days and
convince the people.
Tell us how much space is needed: Councillor
The Metro station is proposed to be
built in Pulakeshinagar ward of Pulakeshinagar Assembly Constituency.
Ward councillor said the a huge play ground. “There
is no problem in using 30,000 to 40,000 sqft of land at one corner.
This space is not utilised by people, so it’s okay to use the space for a
Metro station,’’ he said. He said he will organise an interaction meet
with BMRCL. “They should tell us how much space will be used,’’ he said.
Children from Sulthangunta, in and around Pulikeshinagar, Bharathinagar, Shivajinagar, Rajiv Gandhi
Colony and other places play here every day. The next nearest playground is some 3 km away
People use the grounds to offer prayers during Eid and other special occasions
There are 4-5 government as well as
private schools which use the grounds for various occasions including
sports meet, annual day and other occasions.
Hebbal is an Assembly Constituency area in Bangalore, Karnataka, India, which was once indicative of the north endpoint of the city. Though originally famous for Hebbal Lake, it is now better known for the serpentine maze of flyovers that network the Outer Ring Road and Bellary Road. The flyover spans a length of 5.23 kilometres (3.2 mi) over all the loops combined. The flyover was built by Gammon India. The lake area is well known for the park, the boating facility, and for the bird watching opportunities.
Hebbal used to be the end of the corporation limits of Bangalore
City. One can still see the milestone between the Baptist hospital and
checkpost. Bangalore has now grown quite a bit towards north,
beyond these marks. L&T factory, which was established in the
1970s, is also close to Hebbal. Raintree Boulevard project is coming up
at same place before GKVK University. All arterial roads and road
networks leading to the BIAL intersect at Hebbal. Further, BIAL has its
office on the National Highway (NH 7) exit of the Hebbal flyover in
Gayathri Lake Front. Due to short-sightedness of the governing
authorities, the Hebbal Flyover has become a bottle-neck for traffic
flow from the city centre towards North and the same when traveling from
North to city centre. Traffic is crawling be it any time of the day.
This is because almost 6 lanes coming from each side, jostle to fit in
the two lane Hebbal bridge bringing the traffic to a stand still.
The incumbent MLA has failed to satisfy the demands of the residents of Malleshwaram,
Being the senior vice-president of the Karnataka State Athletics
Association, Ashwath Narayan seems to be less-interested in parks and
Ashwath Narayan batted for the widening of Sankey tank road and proposed
the construction of luxury apartments on the land belonging to the
government-owned debt-ridden Mysore Lamps, in April 2012.
These two acts, along with his extreme interest in building stadiums
and gyms throughout the constituency are seen by the citizens as an act
of killing the lung-space in this area.

artificially shaped canals inside the park.
The constituency was under scanner for multi-crore fake bill scam
unearthed by the Technical Vigilance Cell of the BBMP. An attempt to
build a basketball and tennis court in the Vyalikaval park via BBMP was
stopped by the High Court, in response to a PIL filed by some of the residents, in accordance with the Parks and Playgrounds Act. Prior to filing the PIL, when residents had voiced their concerns, Ashwath Narayan did not support them.
Assets and liabilities of MLA
Ashwath Narayan declared an asset of Rs 6,89,40,978 and a liability
of Rs 1,41,52,886 in 2008. After five years, his asset has grown to Rs
17,31,05,284, while liabilities have increased to 6,39,00,000 though the
income he showed while filing the Income Tax returns is 75 lakh. In
other words, his net worth has almost doubled in five years, from Rs
5,47,88,092 to Rs 10,92,05,284.

Assembly Constituency has seven wards. Out of these, six have BJP
corporators, while one ward has a Congress corporator. Out of the six,
Vijayakumari, corporator for Rajmahal Guttalli, is said to be
‘hospitalised’ and inactive in this election, even as her husband has
broken up with the BJP and contesting on a KJP ticket.

Aramane Nagara (Ward 35)
is the biggest ward in the constituency with an area of 7.47 sq.km, and
houses majority of the green belt of the constituency. Mathikere (Ward 36) has a population of around 35882 in an area of 0.91 sq.kms. Malleshwaram (Ward 45), the only ward with a Congress corporator, has a population of 36321 in an area of 1.81 sq.kms.
Rajamahal Guttahalli (Ward 64)
corporator Vijayakumari (BJP) is not actively involved in campaign this
time. Her husband Kumar has been contesting on a KJP ticket. The ward
has a population of 33964, in an area of 0.73 sq.kms. Kadu Malleswara (Ward 65) has a population of 34053 in an area of 1.36 sq.kms.
The Orion Mall and Brigade group buildings are constructed on a
Rajakaluve. There is a PIL pending against this. – Kiran R V,
Key issues in Malleshwaram AC
The Mantri mall and the Mantri Greens residential complex, that are
practically in Malleshwaram but fall under Gandhinagar constituency,
have been the cause of enormous traffic jams and parking problem in the
area. The new Orion mall and the Brigade group World Trade Center have
added to the worry. The traffic jam at Yeshwanthpur circle is
unmanageable. Yeshwanthpur APMC falls under this constituency.
Garbage segregation and disposal is not being done properly in many
of the wards. In some wards like Kadu Malleshwara, new garbage disposal
contracts are yet to come into effect due to code of conduct. Traffic
and parking problem multiplied by frequent road repairs are always the
pain in the neck for the constituency.
Gayathri Nagar and Subrahmanya Nagar areas have frequent problems
with drinking water supply. Though these two wards are separated from
main Malleshwaram just by the Majestic – Yeshwanthpur railway line, in
reality they are a world apart, with the obvious disparity in water
supply, power cuts, garbage and congested roads. Kadu Malleshwara and
Malleshwaram wards where the affluent live rarely suffer from these
Proposal to demolish and rebuild the Malleshwaram vegetable market
into a multi-storeyed building has landed the lives of over 269
vegetable vendors in jeopardy. About 51 of them have managed to get a
stay order by the High Court, and the rest are in the process of obtaining a stay. This project of the BDA, according to reports, does not have clearances by the Fire, BWSSB, BESCom, BSNL and Pollution Control Board, and has various irregularities.
The problems still exist out in
the open for all to see.
Narrow roads and water supply shortage have been the foremost issues
left unresolved by the incumbent and earlier elected leaders.
There is also an exodus of workers from Peenya Industrial suburbs to the quieter locales of Nandini Layout and Mahalakshmipuram.
There are 2.12 lakh voters in 2013. There has been no significant increase in the voter base since 2008.
