They were the ones who protested when Bellandur Lake caught fire, emphasizing that this cannot be the fate of the other lakes in Bengaluru.

They are the ones who promptly tweet about power-outages or jams, asking 'what is the government doing?'

Shame on you, Bengaluru's nerds!

Shameful!They waste their one chance to elect the right government

This outrage isn't dumb-founded.

A special mention for Bommanahallii: a dismal 45%.

However, they chose to go on a vacation and not cast a vote.

Instead of complaining about each and every fault in the city, vote and show that you care for your city, Bengaluru.
