The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), which has been chastised for its failure to patch potholes, spent Rs 23 crore to pave 14 kilometres of roads ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brief visit to Bengaluru. On Monday, June 20, the Prime Minister paid a visit to Bengaluru, where he launched a number of economic and railway projects. Kengeri to Kommaghatta (7 km), Mysuru Road (0.15 km), a stretch after the Hebbal flyover (2.4 km), Tumakuru Road (0.90 km), and roads on the Bengaluru University campus were created (3.6 km).On Monday, Modi took the route to the Dr B R Ambedkar School of Economics (BASE) University. The road collapsed in on Tuesday, only metres from the BASE University campus, after a period of nighttime rain. “Despite several complaints from road users, nothing was done. In truth, nearby institutions had filled in the crater, and when that didn’t work, a wall was erected to keep cars from falling. This is the second time this has happened. They had asphalted the road in April, when Modi’s visit was scheduled but ultimately cancelled. “The road had caved in then as well,” adds Anantha Subramanyam, a frequent user of the section.The double-engine administration is pursuing every avenue to increase connectivity in the nation’s capital and rid Bengaluru of traffic bottlenecks, according to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who visited the city on Monday. “For many young people, Bengaluru is the city of dreams. One India, United India is exemplified by Bengaluru. Bengaluru’s growth represents the realisation of countless ambitions. The national government has worked tirelessly over the past eight years to upgrade amenities in Bengaluru. There shouldn’t be any obstacles in Bengaluru that prevent someone from achieving their aspirations, he remarked.
