National Public School Food Delivery Nuisance – The New Indian Express

Express press service

BENGALURU: The National Public School (NPS), Indiranangar, has complained that teachers and students are being harassed by online food delivery agents who congregate near the school, despite this being of a prohibited parking zone. The area next to the Empire Hotel on 12A Main Road has been turned into a parking lot by delivery partners. Despite the “No Parking” signs posted, the area is full of delivery people waiting with their bikes on either side of the road.

Dr. KP Gopalkrishna, founding chairman of the NPS, said that often their numbers exceed 100 and they block the road. They leave no room for school workers to park and are a nuisance as they urinate near the school and comment on girls and teachers, he added.

The hotel nearby works late into the night, and since the road to the school is empty at this time, many customers sit in their cars and consume food and alcohol. They dump empty bottles near the school campus, and almost every morning we take out 12-15 bottles, Dr Gopalkrishna complained.

Empire Hotel manager Nishad Uvais said the area was not the hotel car park and agreed the space was occupied by delivery people waiting for their orders. He added that he had no knowledge of people drinking in cars and throwing bottles at night.

The school alleged that a few days ago, a person who was not allowed to park his car near the wall of the school compound, complained that the school was not following the rules of traffic and had encroached on the road while parking school buses. The school has requested that its buses be allowed to park on the street, as residents have no objection.
