The President of Bangalore Chamber of Commerce, John M. Panikar, warned yesterday that if steps are not taken to vastly improve Karnataka’s infrastructure the enormous gains the state has been making in recent years will begin to fade. He is particularly concerned about the city’s roads, lack of water, limited power supply, the ports and the airports. Whew!
Panikar said that there have been proposals to fix these problems, but they are hindered by “unavoidable red tape, political controversies, sheer incompetence and rampant corruption.”
Sounds about right.
