#Leavebengaluru: On ground zero, Bengaluru at this point is sinking. Water supplies and electricity have taken a hit, traffic jams snuff out the life in you.

Evacuations, in full swing, reveal bewildered citizens, rich and poor hosting themselves up on boats and tractors, in a situation now concerning to environmentalists and industrialists alike.

However, in the face of tragedy, another war brews, cracks deepening inside the very diverse social fabric of Bengaluru we were once so proud of.

That is the blame game on outsiders.

True Bangaloreans, as they call themselves, have been angry that outsiders have been complaining about the flood situation in the city.

#Leavebengaluru has been now trending on Twitter, where netizens demand those who have a problem with the city to leave!

shocking right? well, no.

It has been through decades. The torrential rains now, however, has exposed the blatant discontent that has been moving around secretly in gossip circles until now.

Another hashtag #Getlostmigrants is gaining momentum on social media meant specifically for people to leave the city if they don’t like it.

Why are Bangaloreans so angry?

Apparently, Bangaloreans do not seem to like being criticized incessantly by ‘outsiders’ for issues that are legit!

While it’s true that the civic bodies in the city have not given enough attention to the problems caused due to monsoons every year, the neglect and apathy by the State government towards rampant concretization of the city and encroachment of ecologically sensitive lakes have now triggered locals.

Some jokes on social media were on how Bangaloreans justify everything with the weather but is it really true?

Here’s how some users expressed their opinion.

Social media users, regardless of the native state they belong to, took to Twitter to highlight the dire state Bengaluru has been, calling out authorities for poor infrastructure and heavy traffic. Some also pointed out the rising pollution levels in the city, rallying with the sole intention of creating awareness of a city built on an unsteady foundation of greed and concrete.

Some took to memes, taking out their everyday frustrations of living in a congested environment, cumbersome fast life that is legit ruining the collective silicon valley life it was once fantasized for.

It is understandable how the debate slowly steers away from important issues to the ‘You and I’ debate, however, it is crucial for citizens across the states to realize that this might be the ‘new normal for Bengaluru, and their respective cities too.

    The reporting seems to blame the “locals” for asking the arrogant people to leave. Those people want all facilities here, do not mingle, and something bad happens, start blaming. Shame on the biased media that is giving one-sided news and blaming locals for asking these ungrateful selfish people to leave Bengaluru. I too ask the same thing. If they find problems here, then GET LOST!!!
