Bengaluru, May 27: Getting down to business after the two-month-long election campaign, deputy chief minister Dr G Parameshwara, who is also Bengaluru Development Minister, visited Vijayanagara, Malleshwaram, West of Chord road and other areas that have been seriously affected by the heavy rains.

He inspected the loss caused by falling trees at West of Chord and Vijayanagara areas and also heard grievances from vehicle riders and residents.

Dr Parameshwara instructed the personnel to clear the tree branches fallen on roads immediately.

The Bescom personnel were directed to restore the power lines that have been disrupted due to rains.

Speaking to the media persons after the inspection, he said that heavy rains for two days have damaged more than 500 trees in the city while more than 100 trees have been brought down.

The state has witnessed more than 120 mm of rain at a few areas. As a result of rain and storm, several trees have fallen, he said.

A total of 61 teams from various departments including BBMP and Bescom are working towards restoring electricity and clearing debris from the roads, said Dr Parameshwara.

The BBMP control room has enabled us to be aware of the rain-related problems at the earliest, he said.

The deputy chief minister said the BBMP is well-prepared for the monsoon that is about to enter the city in a few days.

He instructed the officials concerned to take necessary measures to tackle the impending monsoon at a preparatory meeting held a month earlier. This has resulted in prevention of flooding in low-lying areas in the city, he mentioned.

As the rains also cause immense damage to the dangling cables, initiative to lay cable lines underground will be taken up within two months, said the minister.

He later inspected fallen trees at Sampige Road in Malleshawaram and listened to the grievances by the local residents.

Mayor Gangambike Mallikarjun, BBMP Commissioner Manjunath Prasad, MLA M Krishnappa and others were present.
