Karnataka Govts Proposal for 10-Storey Building in Cubbon Park Sparks Outrage

The Karnataka government plans to construct a multi-storey building, with at least seven to eight floors, within Bengaluru's Cubbon Park to serve as the office of the state Election Commission. Read SURFACES REPORTER (SR)’s complete report below:

Despite the pending case before the Karnataka High Court, in 2019, construction was permitted inside Cubbon Park without cutting down any trees.

Environmentalists and activists oppose the government's decision, citing concerns that the building construction would disturb the park's ecology.

Cubbon Park, a green space in the heart of Bengaluru, restricts vehicular movement even on weekends.

Controversy Brews

The government's proposal to construct a 10-storey annexe in place of the old Election Commission office has sparked opposition due to potential increased vehicular traffic and pollution levels.

Bengaluru Central MP PC Mohan strongly opposes the construction, labeling it as a "green genocide" and urging citizens to vehemently oppose it.
