Bengaluru: Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai said the restoration work of pothole-riddled Bengaluru roads will be taken up on a “war footing”, adding that he himself would monitor the work.
Speaking to media persons after participating in the Bengaluru Tech Summit, he said, “The continuous spell of rains in the city and other districts due to the depression in the Bay of Bengal has left its trail of damage on Bengaluru roads.”
“I have already held a meeting in this regard and Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike has been instructed to take up the works immediately. If the concerned contractors fail to take up maintenance works to deduct the cost incurred from contractors later,” he further said.
Bommai said that the government had released Rs 280 crore for taking up underground drainage works in 110 villages that were newly added to BBMP limits.
