OF BENGALURU

I believe that citizens' active and sustained participation in local bodies will ensure good governance. Public apathy leads to apathy and corruption in government.

My vision is to make Bengaluru a model city where citizens take pride in living here. My vision is to reclaim the city from the mafia of all kinds: garbage mafia, real estate mafia, contractor mafia and politician mafia.

My passion is to develop long yerm plan for Bengaluru, to make BBMP independent of state government control and ward level governance the fulcrum for city's governance. Retired from Bosch in 2013 as Vice President after a fulfilling corporate career.

R Balasubramanian

GOVERNING COUNCIL MEMBER
EX DIRECTOR – SANKARA EYE CARE

Ex-President of Bangalore Apartments’ Federation (BAF). Involved in social activities over the last 15 years

It is my firm belief that BBMP (or for that matter any municipal corporation) doesn't need politicians to run the city administration. The Corporator is not concerned with legislation ( passing of laws ). His role and responsibility is to execute the laws & policies in existence. Which. In practice, amounts to the Corporator's role of being a servant in the true sense of the community. He should make the constituents problems his own problems. Earning & sustaining public trust by serving the public interest using powers responsibly for the purpose and in the manner for which they were intended acting with honesty & transparency making reasoned decisions without bias by following fair and objective processes.

Over 40 years of corporate experience with over 21 years of experience in healthcare sector. Was Executive Director with Apollo Hospital & has 11 years with Sankara Eye Care serving the needy. Has done his MBA from IIM Ahmedabad.
