A frozen crowd makes Bengalus think of Lalbagh

On a cloudy Saturday morning, the Bengali who frequented the Botanical Gardens of Lalbagh had an amazing image, as they saw a group of young people and activists holding signs and banners that said Corporador No. 1 as part of a frozen mafia. The objective, as a result, was to draw attention to the first Corporate No.1 Promotions promoted by citizens, in which Bengali qualify their representatives of local organizations according to their effectiveness. In the meantime, the frozen mafia attracted varied responses , and the spectators commented on the uselessness of the award ceremony, given that most people do not even know the neighborhood numbers they belong to or their local representatives. Some listened to talk about how those in power are in this just for the money and so on.

Srinivas Alavilli of Citizens for Bengaluru , the organisation that conducted the freeze mob and is behind the upcoming award function, says that it is this mentality that has pushed the cause of the Corporator No. 1 awards. “We are used to rating everything today using our smartphones, be it a restaurant, a delivery boy or a taxi driver. But how many of us rate the most basic necessities like garbage management or public toilets. We want to award the best corporators and recognise their efforts,” says Srinivas.

Agrega: No estamos comparando áreas ni teniendo una carrera. Estamos tratando of honrar a quienes alientan la participación ciudadana. Han pasado seis meses desde que los comités of barrio han entrado en juego. Entonces, si un corporador ha tenido seis reuniones mensuales, según lo estipulado por la regla hasta el momento, entonces hay posibilidades of que él o ella sea un ganador. Esta iniciativa alentará a quienes ya están siguiendo esta iniciativa e impulsará a otros a tener ahora estas reuniones para una colaboración ciudadana eficiente .

Usually, ward committee meetings are held on the first Saturday of every month, where the corporator, along with other people responsible for the well-being of the area, which could include engineers from civic bodies like the BWSSB and BESCOM, local policías of tráfico e incluso los funcionarios locales encargados del transporte, se reúnen y participan en las discusiones con los ciudadanos. “Es difícil incluso para el Ministro Principal reunir a tanta gente a la vez, pero los comités of barrio han hecho que eso suceda. Esto es lo que queremos que los ciudadanos también entiendan a través of este ejercicio , dice Srinivas.

The power of ward committees

l Allows people to plan in advance reconciling internal demands.

l Has 10 members who must be residents of the ward familiar with local issues

Todos pueden asistir a las reuniones del comité of barrio.

l Si un comité of barrio decide trabajar y exige un presupuesto, BBMP no puede rechazar

How and why does a corporation earn?
