40,000 properties in Bangalore are likely to be demolished to widen 227 roads by displacing 38,000 to 2 lakh people for private vehicles. Pedestrians have no footpaths to walk. Road widenings must be stopped. Homes, properties and livelihoods of the citizens must be saved. Roads should be accessible for all sections of society.

with regard road widening, I would like to submit as follows.

I am of the firm opinion that it will be meaningless to oppose all road widening projects;

It is very much necessary, to positively widen major commercial roads and arteries; but this should positively go hand in hand with making the roads signal free; rather roads identified as signal free corridors can be widened

of course roads through residential areas need not be widened;

considering this, we can obtain from BBMP, a list of roads which they propose to widen and offer our approval for widening only the commercial roads and major arterial roads and oppose roads through residential areas, if justified

many thanks
