In the recent weeks there have been news reports that former corporator M Pari has filed a case against the BBMP in the Lokayukta court. The complaint seeks an inquiry into the Animal Birth Control (ABC) programme, which is being carried out from 2001.  And that  BBMP commissioner Mr. Siddaiah has been asked to implement recommendations of the report submitted by Dr MK Sudarshan in May 2007.   The KIMS reports’ ‘analysis’ by its authors clearly seems motivated since the ‘data’ in the report and from BBMP clearly shows that onRead More
