As many as 51 corporators from Bangalore’s civic body, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), were honoured at an event held on Sunday.

They were awarded ‘Corporator #1 Namma Samiti Puraskaara’  for holding at least four ward committee meetings in the last six months. Some of the corporators had held monthly meetings for all of the six months.

Former Lokayukta Justice Santhosh Hegde, the chief guest at the function, said he was warned against attending a function to award politicians. “But I know there are good people in politics too and it’s our collective responsibility to recognize their good work,” he said. He further reminded the elected representatives that they were public servants and have to uphold the values of the Constitution while performing their duties.
