Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike's new commissioner M Lakshminarayana, who, having replaced Siddaiah, assumed office yesterday said his priority lies in preparing for rain woes and keeping water-borne diseases in check, as well as ensuring financial discipline and transparency.
"I have served for 26 years in various government departments. Given the vast area, managing BBMP's affairs is a very difficult job," Lakshminarayana said, while noting that he was aware of the problems the city was facing.
He also promised protection to honest officials and curbing duplication of works and bills. He sought the citizens’ co-operation to make the city clean and green.
