Tomorrow will be the 100th day of delay in BBMP’s Budget 2012-13. Today’s Deccan Chronicle (http://www.deccanchronicle.com/channels/cities/bengaluru/ashada-new-hurdle-delayed-bbmp-budget-106) carries a report that it could be over a month before Budget 2012-13 is finally presented and that it is unlikely to be realistic, as it is being prepared with an eye on Assembly elections. If this is true, it is a pity that BBMP’s Budget is being used as a political tool rather than as a policy instrument for Bangalore and its citizens. This is the 3rd successive year of delay. How many years before the BBMP presents a realistic Budget on time?
