BBMP chief Gaurav Gupta transferred, Tushar Giri Nath new chief | bangalore

The Government of Karnataka has decided to transfer IAS Commissioner Gaurav Gupta from the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) with immediate effect and appoint IAS Officer Tushar Giri Nath in his place.

Gupta will take on the role of additional chief secretary of the Infrastructure department. Gupta had been appointed head of the BBMP during the second wave of the pandemic on April 1, 2021.

The state government ordered the transfer of 16 IAS officers. Gupta’s transfer comes ahead of high-octane BBMP polls whose dates have yet to be announced. Karnataka is also expected to go to the polls in 2023.

The BBMP has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons and has faced quarterly backlash for poor infra resulting in multiple fatalities lately including accidents caused by potholes, unpaved roads, underpasses filled with water, accidents due to speeding BBMP trucks and even waterlogging.

Residents have raised questions about the failure of the BBMP to prevent these mishaps and ensure smooth administration. The local body has even gone under the radar of the courts, which have issued multiple orders to patch potholes in the city and repair roads, among other things.

In a desperate attempt to restore public trust and generate an ounce of goodwill, the BBMP demanded certificates of fitness for vehicles and ordered officials to clear trees uprooted at the time of flooding and waterlogging. from the city. However, the city’s poor infrastructure was overshadowed even by Telangana IT Minister KT Rama Rao who asked the founder of a start-up to move to Hyderabad for better infra.

The BBMP, notorious for delays in projects and work in progress, dipped lower when it released its 2022-23 annual budget an hour before the end of the fiscal year. The budget for the 2022-23 fiscal year was posted on the BBMP website at 11 p.m. on the last day of March without notice, departing from the usual route of presenting it to the public eye.
