Public meeting has been organised on 21st Feb at BMRCL office Shanthinagar
at 11 am in connection with Constructn of Metro station in LaxmanRao park area.
Srinivas, Chief Engineer, BMRCL
If citizens are told at 8.45 pm (that, too, by email, which they may not see on a Saturday evening) that there is to be a public meeting the next morning (Sunday) at 11 am, how many of them can turn up? Sundays are planned with family or hobbies in mind, well in advance.
Can BMRCL not give citizens a few days’ notice when a meeting is going to be held? Or do they want to ensure that as few people as possible will turn up?
