It is over a year now, but they have done nothing, Hence to teach a lesson to the BBMP, we dumped heaps of waste,” said Ravikrishna.The AAP leader also met Mayor Manjunath Reddy and BBMP officials and demanded a time-bound action with regard to the issue of solid-waste management.AAP has lost its mind: MayorMayor Manjunath Reddy came down heavily on AAP for dumping waste in front of the BBMP office. “The party has lost its mind. Officials have been asked to book a case against the party leaders for instigating such an act. There was no prior notice for this. They even dumped plastic materials which the government has banned. There will a case against AAP," said the mayor.
