One significant drop out from the list of 'stake-holders', compared to the BATF days is Bangalore Telephones. Actually, even during the course of the 5 years of BATF's existence (SMK's govt's existence), Airtel, Reliance, Spice (or whatever their then avatars were) etc had come on the scene, particularly with the mobile revolution, and thereafter nobody bothered whether Bangalore Telephones existed or not. The same thing can happen to BMTC and BESCOM by the opening out the respective sectors to reputed Corporates.

One significant drop out from the list of 'stake-holders' (I have never quite understood how they qualify to be called that) compared to the BATF days is Bangalore Telephones. Actually, even during the course of the 5 years of BATF's existence (SMK's govt's existence), Airtel, Reliance, Spice (or whatever their then avatars were) etc had come on the scene, particularly with the mobile revolution, and thereafter nobody bothered whether Bangalore Telephones existed or not. When their representative came forward to make his presentation at the BATF conclaves, it was generally time for every one to go to the toilet. As compared to that, during the first few conclaves, the presentations were listened to with great attention, specifically the progress of the wait-lists in each area/ zone.

The same thing can happen to BMTC and BESCOM by the opening out the respective sectors to reputed Corporates. The entry of private players in the Telecom sector improved the service levels by miles, besides reaching it to the aam aadmi, as also providing for a great boost to the economy. Their entry into these vital infrastructure sectors will go a long way to improve the quality of life, particularly for the aam aadmi, apart from taking the country straightaway to double digit growth.

Unfortunately, nobody brought this up at the ABIDE. The 'infrastructure conclave', which I attended, was too packed, and even with repeated attempts, I didn't get an opportunity to raise the issue. Whatever, I am not giving up.
