Delhi | August 19, 2015
As the city of Bengaluru gets ready for the upcoming municipal elections, CNN-IBN brings a special series, ‘Mission Bengaluru’, that is being aired from August 17 to 22. The series focusses on the civic issues that matter to the citizens and the city.
Through this Bengaluru Special spread across six days, CNN-IBN will endeavour to discuss issues such as public transport, roads, garbage, housing, traffic – issues that seem to have stalled somewhat the onward march of India’s premier IT city. It has thus become imperative for the administration and political leadership at all levels to work together in order to address these issues and ensure that Bengaluru once again emerges as a model for others to emulate.
The exclusive programming will comprise stories and daily updates from around the city in the newswheel along with a daily half-hour show with extensive on-ground reportage from Bengaluru and the polling day coverage by the channel’s team of anchors, reporters and experts.
The special half-hour show will be aired at 7 pm from August 17 to 22, while the channel will air the poll coverage August 22.
