Ishan Singh started this petition to national green tribunal and

Shikaripalya Lake is being encroached, divided into parts, and used as a dump yard. Please help in saving the lake before it's too late.

The below article was published by Bangalore Mirror after seeing the efforts being put by local citizens residing near the lake area. Meetings have been done with the area MLA Mr. M Krishnappa along with local Hullimangala Panchayat members. Both are pointing fingers at each other but none have started any work for the betterment/rejuvenation of the lake. Please help us in saving the lake in the heart of the Silicon Valley of India, our so-called Electronic City, Bengaluru.

There are at least two roads dividing the 19 acres water body into three parts. It is highly contaminated, has been encroached upon from all sides, and is being used as a dumping yard. The lakes come under Hullimangala Panchayat, which doesn't have a designated land to dump garbage that is being collected from nearby localities, all this garbage is being dumped in the lake by the government vehicles apart from different private builders and vehicles.

The article below says that the Karnataka government has signed MoUs with corporates in the State for the rejuvenation of six lakes in Bengaluru. And it is mentioned that Wipro limited has adopted Shikaripalya Lake, but nothing is happening on the ground to save the lake.
