The citizens' movement opposing the current plans of the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation (BMRCL) in the Southern Reach continued on Sunday morning at Lalbagh West Gate. Today's protest march from Lalbagh West Gate to 32nd Cross, Nanda Road marked the fifth in a series of protests that was sparked by work conducted by the BMRCL on Apr 13 and 14, when they demolished 500 feet of Lalbagh's perimeter wall and felled several trees inside the historic premises to make way for a station.
