Bangalore, Jan 27 (ANI): Demanding a better infrastructure for IT hub Bangalore, over 1,000 techies took out a ‘run’ on the Republic Day to register their voice against the attitude of district authorities towards the citys bad infrastructure.

Braving the morning chill, the techies took part in the corporate run that was organized by the Electronic City Industries Association (ECIA) and flagged off by Lead India finalist R K Misra.

This is all about Bangalore infrastructure. We feel that there are a whole lot of things that can happen and the whole reason why we are doing this today is to draw attention to the fact that lot more needs to be done, said Charles, President, Electronics City Industries Association (ELCIA).

The run was divided into 3.5 and 7 kilometres distance and saw the participation of professionals from renowned companies like Wipro and Infosys.

A woman participant, who is a corporate honcho, said that pedestrians used to cross the road without any proper safety arrangements at over 10 junctions. (ANI)
