Can NaMo solve Bangalore’s garbage problem?

To the eternal mortification of the naysayers, Narendra Damodardas Modi has won an admirable election for the BJP and is now firmly installed as the 15th prime minister of India. As an example of one man single-mindedly pursuing his goal and achieving it against a mountain of opposition this is success nonpareil.

churumuri is happy to be proven spectacularly wrong—and humbled. Somewhat.

That said, the difficult part is meeting the ocean of expectations that Modi channelised into his victory. In urging voters to vote for him by voting for BJP candidates, Modi deftly turned a parliamentary election into a presidential one, in which all the nation’s hopes were somewhat irrationally invested in one man.

As if members of Parliament don’t count.

As if members of Legislature don’t count.

As if members of city corporations don’t count.

A good test of the new prime minister’s supposedly omniscient powers and abilities is in supposedly “high-tech” Bangalore, where sights such these is today commonplace in a City governed by the prime minister’s party; in a State governed by the Congress.

Is it reasonable to expect a “municipal” problem to be solved by the PM, whose MPs also represent the City? If yes, how precisely would Narendra Modi go about this? And how many days should it take for “Achche Din” to dawn on the hapless residents of Bangalore who voted for him and his party?

    You dishonest folks, the right person to address this question to is our “secular socialist CM” Siddaramiah. Yes, that same person the likes of you voted in en masse.

    Anyway its a bit preposterous to campaign against him for years and ask him to clean your trash now.

    Even more preposterous to expect your blog to have any relevance when you have all but given up on your blog, not uploading new articles or moderating comments for weeks on end.

    I would recommend that you sell churumuri (the domain and the blog) to someone who has the dedication and inclination to actually maintain it.

    Wake up your Corporator/MLA/MP/Minister/CM

    > Modi deftly turned a parliamentary election into a presidential one
    More precisely, Modi turned 2014 elections into a referendum – Do you want Modi as PM or not?

    About garbage, it seems Bangalore is the unique city in the world that has this problem. Just a simple Google query on how other cities have solved this problem will give 100s of solution.

    You don’t need Modi for this :)


  4. ramanath maiya Says:

    Keep on ‘SHITTING” & expecting this man to resolve everything is another grave irresponsible thinking from Churumuri’s part.

  5. asha Says:

    Finally Churmuri has recovered from the mortal shock of NAMOs victory which I had foretold in these forums and eaten a humble pie :) Nevertheless, garbage disposal is the issue to be tackled by the state government and the city municipal corporation both of which are run by Churmuri’s favorite secular KKaaangress party headed by the goonda turned land shark turned opposition leader turned Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.. Churmuri please redirect your question and clever by half challenge to Siddanna who is more interested in floating secular programs like “Shaadi Bhagya” and clearing ban on Cow slaughter than keeping the hi tech city clean. It would also be a good idea to find out where that Mr.Aadhar Nilekani who boasted he is committed solving bangalore’s issues is hiding and ask him to take some initiative to clean up the mess..after all he has a huge chunk of money he earned by selling the snake oil called Aadhar card

  6. Concerned Bangalore Citizen Says:

    Let him not poke his nose here! We don’t want someone to push for waste to energy projects through incineration. We don’t want Rajanikanth magic here!

  7. Sumitra Says:

    NaMo can solve Bangalore’s garbage problem, but I doubt the ‘socialist CM’ and his bunch of corrupt ministers allowing that.

    Our Mandur and Bangalore garbage crisis has been making headlines for so many years, with politicians promising everything to helpless citizens of Bangalore. Coincidently, Modi’s ‘Clean Ganga Plan’ is all ready in matter of days, with five ministries coming together to pool their resources to draft a blueprint for the Prime Minister’s project. The representatives of environment, power, tourism and shipping, besides water resources, will take part in the inaugural brainstorming session.

    Every single day, BBMP dumps 1,800 tonnes in Mandur; 1,000 tonnes in Gundlahalli village, Doddaballapur; 500 tonnes in S Bingipura, it is well known that the Govt can make crores of revenue every week, by installing advanced waste-processing units and garbage-to-energy conversion plants. Regretfully, the powerful garbage mafia led by the Congress-I politicians stands to lose! Karnataka Transport Minister Ramalinga Reddy has admitted many times that many BBMP corporater’s are part of the illegal garbage mafia, the same corrupt politicians who also run the illegal water tanker , sand and granite mafia in Bangalore!

    While the entire Karnataka cabinet in water-starved, power-starved, garbage-ridden, moon-cratered Bangalore is now recognised as completely inefficient and corrupt to the core, the guessing game has already started in Delhi, as to who will kick-start the first mega-scam of this new BJP Govt? Any bets on the former petty trader and corporate fixer from Nagpur (his car driver was a Director in 11 shady companies) or the party hopping most-opportunistic politician from Bihar or the canny, Advani-flunky and former Modi-baiter from Bangalore South or the 12 class pass HRD minister or the cabinet minister from Vidisha or one of the noted MPs from UP, among so many others?

    Yes, he can also make your toilet clean. Thats the power of PM

  9. Gaampa Says:

    Churumuri’s new posts had disappeared for almost three weeks. I was left wondering if “swalpa Sihi – Swalpa Kahi” was engulfed by “Thumba Kahi” news of NaMo’s stunning victory. It is good for Churumuri’s health to eat the humble pie too.

    Be that as it may (ack-ing KBG), coming to the present story, why and how can NaMO solve Bangalore’s rubbish? Kannada pride would be deeply gashed if our local leaders cannot solve this and we need central intervention. What are local governments for ? Giving permission for extra medical seats?
    It is time Bangalore’s growth is stopped in its tracks. The city has started to crumble and implode. Garbage issue is more or less garbage.

  10. H.S.Subbaramaiah Says:

    There going to be a change in living style and administration in every nation as generations change. There existed small states in our country which were ruled by Palegars (territorial administrative and military governors appointed by the Nayaka rulers of South India) and kings. There were Navabs, Sulthans, Governors appointed by King and queen of England. Monarchy gave place to Democracy since 1956 which is modelled and based on British system. Who know in the future what type of Government our country going to have.

    Whatever the way this time in Parliamentary elections BJP Party came out with formidable majority and formed the Government in centre. To retain their Party as ruling party BJP M.P.s, M.L.a.s, Municipal councillors and Party workers should work hard with all honesty for a long term.

    >churumuri is happy to be proven spectacularly wrong—and humbled. Somewhat.

    And churumuri seemed to have gone in to mourning for over a month! Introspection perhaps? ;)

    All the talking heads were proven wrong! I wonder where our friend ‘simpleton’ who used to swear congress/UPA will win big disappeared!

    Anyway, it isn’t absurd to expect a leader to set things right, but muncipal problems take structural change in governance. What India needs is administrative reforms that put people back in control of bureaucracy.

    Govt. should not provide blanket protection from prosecution to govt. servants for their personal negligent conduct. The reason why our ‘babus’ behave the way they do is there is no institutional or personal accountability. If Modi govt. changes our laws to provide the right for people to sue and get redresses easily, then governance will dramatically change even at municipal level.

  12. Sanjeeva Says:

    Please don’t try to act innocent. Discerned readers can see that you are being mischievous and sarcastic for no reason. In our country or for that matter, in politics, elections have always been individual-centric. Neither politicians seek votes in the name of party nor do the people vote for parties. It has always been Nehru, Indira, Rajiv, Modi, Amma, Ayya, Thailaivar, Gowdru, Lalu etc. Which politician works for the party? Modi didn’t say that he will transform the country overnight or in a fortnight. What he was emphasizing was providing good governance and it needs the cooperation of people as well, which in our country is less said the better. You can see on the roads, it is mostly the educated people who have scant respect for traffic rules or civic sense. And if any harsh rules are brought to control, media will be the first one to cry hoarse. It is not an easy task to clear the mess created over a number of years.

  13. RaoWords Says:

    Garbage problem is the problem to be looked after by local municipality and State Government and yes to a certain extent the local MP’s, but shouldn’t expect anything to come directly from Modi. People should put pressure on local leaders to resolve the issue. I read in Churumuri about a initiative to turn garbage into electricity, and should let private / foreign investors to enter this domain, without any cap on foreign investment, than I sure the issue would be resolved to a greater extent.

  14. AKGaur Says:

    How Namo can solve Garbage problem of Banglore?
    It is the responsibility of citizens to keep clean their CITY.
    Law&Order is state subject.Politicians must allow Police to
    Electricity is state subject.Local Govt should not give free Electricity.
    List is endless.Till we Indians become responsible citizens
    our problems cannot be solved.

  15. Ullasa Vadan Says:

    Wow!!! Churumuri proving itself once again that its a Congress Chamacha. How come the PM of India is responsible for garbage cleaning of Bengaluru? Is BBMP and State government dead? I was observing that once NaMo became PM churumuri was silent. And suddenly it comes with such rubbish things….. When will churumuri and its team mature?

  16. Truth Says:

    Does it not come to your mind Churumuri (Hari Hari) that this question should be asked to BBMP, MLA`s & your beloved CM (of course Sickular).

  17. Ravi H Says:

    Heard the CM, his Home Minister and Speaker are sending another team of MLA’s along with their families on a major official tour of European cities, “to study” how they treat and actually profit from garbage.

    Meanwhile, the Garbage City of India has hit global headlines. An enterprising businessman from Gujarat has already offerred to buy the garbage landfill, promising to turn it to gold but the Cong-I fixers are apparently ‘demanding advance’.

  18. ERR Says:

    Welcome back :)

  19. Deepak Says:

    Poor Churumuri was busy applying burnol after May 16th and finally was relieved from the severe burning angst and could post today. And what a post, wow!! The PM of the country has to come to Bangalore, drive a garbage van and clean the city. And the Chief Minister can sleep peacefully and continue planning on casteist and communal politics while the PM can shift to Bangalore to satisfy wise churumuri. Looks like we are destined to see such more and more such wise posts in future on this site. Lucky us!!

  20. gowdara gowda ! Says:

    the only soulution for the garbage problem to be solved is govt should buy the garbage from the residents and garbage should be created a great value so that no one throws it .

  21. pmysore Says:

    what is the state government of Karnataka doing ? You don’t need the PM to intervene, Yes NaMO will have to do the inevitable when he realises the lack of common sense on the part of the responsible sooner than later.

  22. Srivathsa Joshi Says:

    :-) Sarcastic it may sound, but let me say this:

    This post and, in general churumuri blog’s anti-Mondi stand, stinks much more horrible than the garbage in namma Bengaluru!!!

  23. Vinay Says:

    gowdara gowda:

    Very innovative and out of the box thinking. Not sure if it can be practically implemented in reality, but very interesting thoughts. :)

  24. Shree Kar Says:

    NaMo has already taken a

    NaMo has already resolved to clean up Ganga river.
    Compared to that, cleaning up Bangalore may not be so difficult for him.

    @Shreevats Joshi: +1

  25. Gaby Says:

    Thank God this election is truly over, dried and dusted.

    Churumuri should stop indulging in politics and return to what it does best- carry stories and facilitate discussion on Mysore, Bangalore, Kannada, Mylari Dose, Malleshwara, Saraswatipuram, Marimallapas etc etc.

    These are far more interesting things than electoral triumphs and routs- both impostors!

  26. Ramesh Gowda Says:

    After taking stealth revenge against a honest officer like ADGP P Ravindranath, successfully attempting to sideline his career and finally shunting the professional doctor (IPS officer)) to far-away Dharwad our “secular socialist CM” has now entrusted the all powerful Malayali partner of ‘The Embassy Group’, and another “honest-secular leader” hailing from Karnataka-Kerala border with the noble task of ‘closing Siddu’s exposed misdeeds’ with the help of the local CID!

    It is well-known in police circles and among all officers in the state executive that the ‘secular socialist’ leader’s well-known flunkies like Auradkar with able help from friends like Ravikanthe and Ravi, targeted the honest cop (shockingly arrested and locked-up ruthlessly for a so-called clicking a snap incident!) because of Ravindranath’s past decision and actions in the “secular socialist CM” constituency, including suspected involvement in arresting the noted son Rakesh, while the then Mysore police commissioner KL Sudheer himself, had initially justified the arrest due to a genuine attempt to murder charge filed by KJP candidate Ka Pu Siddalingaswamy .

    Rumours floating in the corridors of Vidhana Soudha is that instead of solving the crucial problems of the state and plugging the acute corruption in all departments and ministries, apart from urgent matters like the Garbage crisis in Bangalore, the “secular socialist CM” is now trying his best to check-mate KPCC President Parameshwara, who represents the traditional loyalists, from becoming the Deputy CM.

    Well, since the “secular socialist CM” can’t stand to smell the garbage stink for even a minute, he has conveniently passed on the blame for obvious inefficiency, irresponsibility and the garbage-mafia nexus on BBMP commissioner and Bangalore in charge minister Ramalinga Reddy.

  27. Ranganatha Prabhu Says:

    If NaMo has to solve Bangalore’s problem, then what is the use of Siddu? Huh! Stupid article.

  28. parijataka Says:

    and is dear nidderamiah doing about namma bengalooru’s garbage…

  29. GowdaFan Says:

    why dont you ask the secularist shikamani deve gowdroo to fix this ? I guess he and his no good cronies and sons and grandsons can only crap all over the place but cant clean up after themselves.

  30. Mithila Says:

    Yes, the Bangalore BJP MP’s who are cabinet ministers will surely take up the garbage issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, especially after Modi made is mind know during his talks and while taking a round around PMO premises. Remember, Modi had directed the bureaucrats to dress smartly and keep their office premises super clean. And anybody found spitting pan on the walls will be punished.If that is the line of thinking then garbage piling up in our garden city will get top priority.
