The collaborative effort of the BBMP and residents of Vasanth Nagar has led to the elimination of most of the dark spots in the area.
Story so far: After nightfall, many areas of the city experience complete darkness. Vasanth Nagar is not one of those areas anymore as 40 sodium fittings are being installed around the key junctions by BBMP officials.
- After surveying the dark spots in the area a few months back, the BBMP worked in coordination with the Resident Welfare Association and the local MLA office to eliminate these spots.
- This was done by installing 50 new poles as well as replacing lights on existing BESCOM poles.
Let there be light: This initiative will improve the quality of life of residents and minimize untoward incidents as a result of darkness. Rizwan Arshad, Shivajinagar MLA, said that apart from Vasanth Nagar, he aims to eliminate darkness in the entire constituency.
