By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangaluru: Earlier to urbanization every Kere and Tank bund had huge catchment area to provide fresh water and through tank bund water was flowing in down stream providing water for irrigation and drinking purposes .In view of urbnaisation no catchment area exists as it is alreadyconverted into big layouts and thire by Kere and Tank became dried and dried Kere and Tank also were converted into layouts as no water exists there and today government demolishing the buildings in such dried Kere and Tank bund was an illegal exercise , Government should ask the technical experts to make research on the subject as even live Kere and Tank bund does not have huge catchment area to provide fresh water through tank bund and water is stagnated and stagnated water mixed with sewage water has become breeding ground for mosquitoes and they spread dengu and other diseases to all Bangalore population. Water problem of Bangaluru is solved by Cauvery water and Thippagondanhalli reservoir and right to water is not affected by any one. But right to life is affected as stagnated kere water is risk to health of citizens. Bangalore does not warrant Kere and Tank bund inside urban areas and they need to be closed for healthy Bangalore.Intellectuals need to debate this issue and stop demolition of already Built Bangaluru on Kere and Tank bund areas.. Save all layouts built on so called tank beds, whether it is BDA or Private Layout. Because in CDP it is residential area. DC Bengaluru Urban district has no power of demolition in planning area of Bengaluru.Stop reckless demolitions in Bangaluru.Find alternative ways to resolve the problems. Government is supreme in policy making.
