BJP Workers Protest Against Bengaluru Potholes With Symbolic Dead Body

BJP Workers Protest Against Bengaluru Potholes With Symbolic Dead Body”

G Veena, 21, a resident of Kundana in Devanahalli, was returning home riding pillion with her elder sister G Lakshmi, 24.

The CM's intervention came after there were reports of accidents due to the potholes. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers protested in front of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) against the potholes and bad road condition. Lakshmi too sustained serious injuries.

Angry residents blocked the road protesting the pathetic condition of the road. On Monday, a woman was run over by a truck while riding pillion with her nephew, who tried negotiating a pothole near Nayandahalli.

The truck driver fled the spot after hitting the two women. "We are taking up fix works everywhere, including on Mysuru Road", he said.

Around a week ago, an elderly couple was killed after a bus ran over them on Mysuru road flyover, The Indian Express reported.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah during a high level meeting with state officials on Monday had blamed torrential rains for the potholes in the city and has promised to rid the city of potholes in a fortnight.

In the east zone, 5,494 potholes had been identified of which 2,162 were yet to be filled, said Mr. Raj, adding that these numbers were only for the major roads.

Back in 2015, a 36-year-old visual artist planted a life-sized crocodile in a 12-feet long pothole in north Bengaluru out of frustration with civic authorities. There is no guarantee for life when you ride on the city road, the government says they have spent 22 cores for filling the pothole but we have not seen any changes in the pothole.
