Bengaluru Industry in doldrums: ABIDe member | Deccan Chronicle

Has governance been severely affected due to the ongoing political struggle in the state?

Industrialists and infrastructure experts feel Bengaluru has not moved forward for the past three years because of the never ending troubles of the BJP.

Following frequent queries raised by industrialists regarding the delay in implementing infrastructure projects, member of ABIDe, R.K. Mishra has expressing concern over inadequate infrastructure in Bengaluru and has sent an SMS to the Chief Minister’s Economic Advisor Dr K.V. Raju, principal secretary I.S.N. Prasad, Karnataka BJP in-charge Dharmendra Pradhan and party general secretary Ananth Kumar.

Mr Mishra stated in the SMS that “there is an enormous delay in implementing infrastructure projects. My industry friends met me and said that they were fed up. As an economic advisor to the CM, you should convey their sentiments to the CM. There is a need to form a special team to expedite infrastructure projects”, stated the SMS.

Confirming the sending of SMS to Mr Raju and other key members in the government, Mr Mishra told Deccan Chronicle that “many industrialists are fed up with the inadequate infrastructure. Bengaluru is not moving forward in the real sense. Projects taken up by BBMP and BDA have been stalled. Due to politics, governance has taken a back seat. As a member of ABIDe it was my duty to bring this to the notice of the government”, he said, adding, “Brand Bengaluru has taken a major hit”.

The government should come out with specific projects for Bengaluru based on a PPP model, he added Economic Advisor to CM, Dr Raju denied receiving any SMS from Mr Mishra. “No project has been stalled. We will have a discussion with industrialists before preparing the Budget”, he told DC.
