Demanding the R and B Department to take up work on improving the roads and strengthening the bridges in his constituency connecting Visakhapatnam city, Madugula MLA G. Ramanaidu launched a two-day fast at K. Kotapadu on Friday.

Mr. Ramanaidu commenced the fast along with Telugu Desam leaders and workers at K. Kotapadu after garlanding the statue of N.T. Rama Rao. Roads in his constituency were in bad shape and particularly the K. Kotapadu-Pinagadi; Anandapuram-K. Kotapadu and Devarapalli-Lankavanipalem roads were full of potholes and narrow. Many road users suffered injuries on these bad roads but the government did not take up major repairs and relaying of the road because he belonged to the opposition party, Mr. Ramanaidu said.
