Help Yourselves~ #Digging #Whitefield

This was WR Volunteer Zibi Jamal’s experience in April 2021!

“As I was coming back from work today, saw 3 guys digging the road right at the entry to Windmills Road. Last week, some other guys had dug, and its a mess. One cant take a left now, have to go around.

So I stop and ask to see permission. They dont have. I ask for Supervisor, dude comes ambling by. No paperwork or letter. He says, madam I will give it to you tomorrow. I say nothing doing, call whoever, I want to see paperwork.

I can track down BBMP contacts, get Engg numbers.

As I follow up, the Vodafone wallahs says… madam, what do you want? We will close the hole. So the guys put all the mud back in, close the hole the dug. And disappear.

Bizarre is not the word.”

After my complaint…. something happened. A truck came to clear away debris. !
