    What is the nature of "smart city works" to be undertaken? Why is it no mention has been made? I find this rather absurd!!

    Instead of perpetually digging , good planning has to be done beforehand.Once a road is dug and repaired it should not be allowed to be touched for the next 10 years except for resurfacing which can be done at night.Proper ducts if placed below the road or footpath, could be used for drains, cables and utilities. Actually lockdown time could have been well utilized for completing all road works.There would have been no disturbance to the people and migrant workers would have got a job food shelter and money.

    compared to Mysuru, Mangagala ooru lags far behind.

    totally corrupted and uneducated corporators both during Congress and BJp time.

    Worst ever MCC office with illiterate and mannerless people

    This can never become a smart city. Just see the central market and state bank fish market. Yaak

    Very good decision. But whether it is only day time or night time also includes, statement not clear. If our Traffic department take this move seriously then it is well and good. Controlling city buses will be a problem.
