This issue is mainly associated with migration problem.While on the one side we are proposing Smart cities on the other hand basic public infrastructure is not safe. Recently, this collapsed incidents are in the air ..dire need of surveillance of each stake holders involved in the construction ..we can't blame always the government .If the middle chain is not doing their work efficiently ,how can we achieve the sustainable development .

  2. Christchurch massacre The attack on mosques is a wake-up call on the anti- immigration, white supremacist cult UBHODESP


  3. New Zealand was shaken to its core on Friday when at least 49 people were killed by a gunman in two mosques in Christchurch Brenton Harrison Tarrant, the suspect, livestreamed the massacre on social media after releasing a white supremacist manifesto that called for removing the "invaders" LIVE The manifesto and the symbols he carried suggest that he was influenced by far-right terrorists and their anti-Muslim, anti-immigration UBHODESP


  4. He saw President Donald Trump as a "symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose". UBHODESP


  5. Lapse and collapse Mumbai's creaking public infrastructure must bee urgently upgraded UBHODESP


  6. The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, leaving six people dead and several injured, underscores the irony of India's race to development on creaking urban infrastructure. It was only in September 2017 that there was a stampede at Mumbai's Elphinstone bridge that left at least 23 people dead UBHODESP


  7. Beyond such acute disasters, there is the chronic toll of eight people, on average, dying every day on the city's railway tracks. This is a dismal image for a metropolis that generates so much wealth, but cannot guarantee the safety of its public infrastructure. Though launched action on the contractor who carried out repairs on the bridge five years ago, the structural safety auditor who had certified the bridge to be in 'good' condition among a total of 39 bridges, and some civic body officials. Such steps may serve to mollify public anger, and no one would argue against efforts to fix accountability for lapses. UBHODESP


  8. However, far-reaching administrative reform is necessary to raise public confidence in the way government works. In a city where eight million passenger trips are made daily on an overburdened railway system, besides other modes of transport, the highest policy priority should be to raise levels of safety. In the wake of the bridge disaster, the municipal corporation must explain how much of its annual budget of *30,692 crore for the coming year will go towards improving facilities and safety for the majority of its citizens who ride trains and buses or walk. UBHODESP


  9. Mumbaikars badly need a new deal in the form of a modernised bus system, with expansion of services that can be funded through a levy on private vehicles or on fuel The move to privatise BEST bus services may result in greater pressure on other systems, reducing access and adding to the stress faced by citizens. Mumbai's experience should serve as a warning to all fast-expanding Indian cities governed by municipal systems that have low capacity and capability to create people-friendly infrastructure. UBHODESP


  10. The End! UBHODESP
