Public pour out woes at grievance meeting

Recommended Posts

BENGALURU: The public poured in their woes at the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP)’s public grievance meet on Thursday. Potholes, uncleared garbage, khata, tax, roads, storm water drains, dog menace, tree fall and many other problems were raised by the residents of the South Zone.

 

H N Ramamurthy from BTM Layout said it was a BDA layout which was transferred to the Palike 15 years ago. “I constructed a house after the layout was transferred to BBMP... Though I am paying tax for a residential house, records in the BBMP website are still showing my property as a vacant site. Many in our locality are paying tax for sites though they have constructed houses,” he said. He added they are yet to get khata and roads not asphalted in his area.

 

Samiulla from Roshan Colony near Jayanagar said when they sought information through RTI about roads and sanitation work in their area, BBMP had replied that it completed all the works. “But in reality nothing has been done,” he alleged.Read more at;

      Hi
       
      My name is Sai Ghatpande, a resident of Mumbai. My passport was expiring this June and hence on 23 Jan 2009 i submitted my papers to the Passport office.
       
      It took 2 1/2 weeks and my papers hadn't reached my local area police station. When i made inquries, i was told that my papers were misplaced and i had to go to the CID office to get duplicate papers. The papers were then re-submitted to the Oshiwara police station and on 21 feb 2009 i went and signed for my verification. Since then i have been waiting for my passport to be delievered. Today when i checked on their website, it said that on 15.04.2009 my passport will be dispatched. Which means the whole proceedure will take over 2 months and i dont even know when i am getting my passport.
       
      I was told that filing a complain with RTI will help. I mailed my complaint to the address that was given on the mumbai passport website.
       
      I am hoping that you guys help me and tell me what i can do, can i gfile a complain? if yes, then where...
       
      Hoping to hear from you,
       
      Regards
       
      Sai Ghatpande

      As reported by Poornima Swaminathan in mid-day.com on 21 January 2011:
      Jail stint: 2.5 yrs, In hospital: 1.5 yrs)
       
      Jail stint: 2.5 yrs, In hospital: 1.5 yrs
       
      Matka queen Jaya Bhagat has spent 490 days out of her 30-month jail custody at JJ hospital, reveals RTI; sources say she even runs her racket from there
       
      The safest place to run a gambling racket in the city could well be from the sanitised environs of a hospital bed.
       
      It has come to the fore that Jaya Bhagat, arrested on charges of orchestrating the murder of ex-husband matka king Suresh Bhagat in 2008, has competently been running the matka business while admitted to JJ hospital's general ward over the last year.
       
       
      Jaya Bhagat stays in the general ward instead of the prisoners' ward at JJ Hospital.
       
      At a time when medical facilities in the prison are dismal and most prisoners do not have access to basic cough tablets and painkillers, Jaya's overstay at the hospital is raising many eyebrows.
       
      Well-placed sources said that instead of serving time in a prison, Jaya, under the guise of being treated, is "being pampered and is enjoying a good time and has also been running the matka business from the hospital ward".
       
      Sources said she has been running the matka business using the cell phones of relatives and visitors who come to see her.
       
      The details of her stay were revealed through an RTI enquiry.
       
      The documents (in MiD DAY's possession) state that Jaya's last stint at JJ hospital was a year long, since January 21, 2010, until January 8, 2011, the date the reply was issued.
       
      Moreover, ever since her jail custody since August 2008, she has been visiting the hospital almost every month (see box), spending an aggregate of 490 days in the hospital's care until date.
       
      Jaya's illnesses
       
      According to hospital authorities, Jaya is being treated for hypothyroidism, infection in the urinary bladder, psychotic depression, uterine fibroid, and has been admitted to the neurology ward of the hospital.
       
      Rulebook says
       
      As per the rule, undertrials are supposed to be admitted in the prison ward. But jail authorities say that even after they intervened, Jaya has still not been shifted. "Jaya's continual hospital stays did come to my notice.
       
      I wrote to the hospital authorities asking them to shift her to the prisoner ward, but to no avail," said Surinder Kumar, deputy inspector general, prisons.
       
      Earlier this month, when MiD DAY asked JJ hospital dean, Dr T P Lahane, about prisoners staying at hospitals for long stretches, he had said, "It's a difficult task to handle prisoners.
       
       
      Matka king Suresh Bhagat's murder was orchestrated by Jaya Bhagat in 2008
       
      They approach us with various special requests and unnecessarily pressurise the doctors and hospital administration.
       
      But if the patient is really ill, irrespective of their prisoner status, we will treat the patient as a human being first."
       
      Matka murder
       
      Suresh Bhagat was allegedly murdered by his wife Jaya, son Hitesh and five others in June 2008.
       
      The seven accused were booked under the Maharashtra Control Of Organised Crime Act, after investigations revealed that they had hatched a conspiracy to eliminate Bhagat. The MCOCA charges were dropped later.
       
      According to the police, Jaya and Suresh were running two separate matka gambling operations in the city after they divorced.
       
      The murder conspiracy came to light after a dispute over earnings worth
      Rs 100 crore.
