Karnataka assembly election 2018 campaign is in full swing. Media and election pundits say this assembly election is a ‘litmus test for PM Narendra Modi’. From what I recall, every assembly & by-election since May 2014 has been seen as a litmus test for the Prime Minister.
Karnataka is going to polls in May 2018. It is election time. The political campaign & the weather are heating up! Most political rallies in Bengaluru are held in Palace Grounds. Political rallies are very important for local leaders as it demonstrates their strength to the High Command (Delhi) of their capability to “gather” huge crowds.
I was pointed to this article in The Hindu newspaper by my dad today “IT sector has done more harm than good to the city“. Bangalore as a brand has taken a huge beating over the last few years. Roads, garbage is a huge problem. But partly we citizens are to be blamed for the mess.
Well, literally our editors at Oneindia.in were on the streets to check out what was happening in front of our office. Bangalore is one city where digging keeps happening all the time.
Few months ago Bangalore was upset with their beloved elected members (MLAs) because they were on a ‘study tour‘ to Argentina, Chile and Peru. At times we citizens jump to conclusions, we all thought they were wasting money. But now we learn they went for something good – they surely had something to bring back from Buenos Aires (Argentina). According to the Bangalore Mirror article Buenos Aires shares the same problem as Bangalore – uncleared garbage! But I wonder if Bangalore inherited this garbage problem after our MLAs study tour.
