Bad roads: Farmers lay siege to AEE’s office

The protest was also to draw the attention of the authorities concerned to the poor condition of the busy road

Members of the Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha (KRRS) on Tuesday laid siege to the office of the Assistant Executive Engineer, zilla panchayat, in Maddur demanding immediate repair works of Maddur-Koppa main road.

The protest was also to draw the attention of the authorities concerned to the poor condition of the busy road, they told presspersons.

According to the protesters, hundreds of goods vehicles, sugarcane lorries, buses, tractors, cars, and other vehicles ply on the road daily.

But, the road had developed hundreds of potholes, causing inconvenience to commuters. Further, the road had witnessed many accidents in recent months. In spite of it, the authorities concerned had not initiated any measures to repair the road.

The ZP should immediately start the repair works, they demanded.

G.A. Shankar, Varadaraju, Gollara Doddi Ashok, Lingappaji, Venkatesh, Honnaiah, Ramesh, Shivaramu, Krishna and others led the protest.
