The power of newspaper is not only that it reaches far and wide but also that opinions are brought forth. Cheers to all the papers who wrote about Open Streets!
The Times said “Open streets in a small locality may seem like a baby step, but the initiative will prove to be a giant leap for Bengaluru in the long run to become a greener city. Major cities across the globe promote public and eco-friendly means of transport like bicycles, so Bengaluru has done well by planning its own initiative to reduce pollution and free the streets from the cacophony of vehicles. Now, it’s the turn of citizens to show how much they care about the environment, and make the initiative a success, so it could be emulated across the city.”
‘Citizen Matters’ from Bangalore did some responsible journalism through their very well balanced article called ‘Some HSR residents to hit the streets this Sunday, others worried’ published on 19.09.2015. The article discusses various views where some were for the initiative and some critical of it but what is important is that opinions come out loud and clear and is constructively understood for the future!
