Hi Folks,

        Was great meeting with you on Saturday. Glad to know we're all on the same page with how to take this forward. It's been a couple of days since then, so could we see how we've progressed on our action items?

        UshaKiran - Please let us know if you have been able to fix an appointment with any authorities that may be able to help.

         Megha, Neeraj, Ananthram - Can we come up with a questionnaire by the end of this week?

Edure Lake

Hi Guys,

I am not finding the exact place in Praja where in I can raise a complaint. I know in Praja many people are raising the concerns and a very few  people actually trying to take a step forward and help resolve the issue. So I also want something to do and help conserve the lakes.

I go via edure lake daily. Right now it is well protected. But the project is the lake needs to be cleaned. When will govt do that. If its not govt how can we initiate something so that the lake is cleaned.

 We need EMs for BWSSB. Looks like Manjari and Neha Dhar are preoccupied. We need to take forward the Bellandur Lake project. Is there any body else in PRAJA interested to set up an engagement with BWSSB? It will be great help!

Bellandur Project - I can go along

PSA Sir,

As I mentioned to you, I had been once earlier to Cauvery bhavan (long time ago, to enquire about cauvery 4th stage) only to wait about 1 1/2 hours to see the concerned official/s. Finally, I gave up as no one seemed to bother.

If you set up an appointment first, I am willing to come anytime.

PSA Garu,

You know I am very interested in issues related to Bellandur Lake. If we can go to BWSSB on anyday from Monday onwards, you can count me in.

But perhaps we should have a quick meeting before we go so that we know what we are trying to get info about. As you are aware, Sanjay V has already filed an RTI about all Lakes.
