Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], March 16 (ANI): Resident Welfare Associations and several other organisations held a protest against the construction of an elevated corridor here on Saturday.

However, Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara said that there is a difference in people’s opinion.

“People from the north of the city want this steel bridge and people from south Bengaluru do not want the bridge,” Parmeshwara told reporters here.

Asserting that the state government will try to convince the protesters, he said, “We will try to convince the protestors. We will ask for the opinion of the people.”

Stating that the construction of the elevated corridor is part of development, the Deputy Chief Minister said that some positive steps are needed to ease out traffic.

“This is all required. When there is development, when the population is increasing, when traffic is increasing, we have to take some positive steps to ease out traffic,” Parameshwara said. (ANI)
