Now this is what I call citizen power? Can this system be replicated? Can we really get rid of our “corrupted to the core” BBMP?

The residents of Yelahanka New Town have a new resolution they want to do away with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) by 2015.

Guided by scientists and experts from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), the residents are learning to be self-reliant in the segregation and disposal of solid waste. Children are touring the area with GPS instruments to map the area and mark the garbage dumping sites. This will put an end to the emergence of illegal dump yards. As of now, Yelahanka New Town has several vacant sites where unscrupulous people could dump garbage and turn them into breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
