@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM It’s been nearly a fortnight when we heard the loud crash and woke with a jolt thinking we had been hit by an earthquake. We ran out of our building to see the whole neighbourhood on the street. Two buildings had fallen - one still under construction, trapping bodies.
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM We had to evacuate that day taking our valuables and whatever we’d need for the next few days. We asked frantically what to do, where to go, how long before we could return - we got vague answers that ranged from 2-3 days to a month. It’s been 13 days and we have no home.
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM On Saturday we were told that one of the buildings, suposedly the one that collapsed first called Sai Adi Ambal, had fallen face front onto the boundary wall of the homes opposite it. This occurred during the demolition process. We were told to take our things, everything and go.
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM 1. We cannot access our homes
2. We are living day to day on whatever we have managed to salvage
3. We are getting no official statements or status updates
4. We have not been informed of when we can return if only to take our things & move
5. We are traumatised & deeply stressed
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM We have been told the official death toll is 5. But some in the area claim another 5 bodies were pulled out last Saturday. This may be a rumour - I am not stating this as fact. Nobody is telling us anything, and it’s giving rise to rumour-mongering #buildingcollapse #Bangalore
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM These are photos from my home where a wall has collapsed, windows shattered by falling rubble and debris, and another wall has a crack where the window frame is. #BuildingCollapse
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM So please, can someone, ANYONE, give us some answers and help us out. We are a little better than refugees in our own neighbourhood. Help us be need to be seen and heard, @TwitterIndia

@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM @TwitterIndia All these buildings have flouted construction laws: unscrupulous building material, shoddy workmanship, poor infrastructure, weak structural integrity, and substandard design (few pillars, thin walls) to cut costs - and three foot foundations for 5 storey flats!
