The Indrali bridge in the city has become a mess since time immemorial. Many accidents are also happening because of it. No matter how much is said about this matter, officials and politicians do not care. A social activist named Nithyananda Wolakadu from Udupi started a protest on Tuesday. Anga circumambulated the potholed road. They started this protest just like they did in the temple.
Nityananda said that many cows and calves died due to potholes and potholes on the road. There are no street lights on the road. He criticized those who ask for votes in the name of cows and calves and do not care about the miserable condition of the road. Meanwhile, he shared the video of Anga Pradakshina on the road on social media. Locals also informed about the accidents happening on those roads. Recently, an auto rickshaw fell down due to the water formed in the pothole on that road. A video related to this is also doing the rounds on social media.
Local residents are expressing concern that the authorities are not paying attention to the fact that accidents are happening. They say that no steps are being taken to repair the road. Still want to solve this problem. According to the official information released by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways last month, between 2018-2020, 5,626 people died in road accidents due to potholes alone. Meanwhile, last month also a person protested in Kerala. Due to the rains, a large amount of water has accumulated in the pothole on the road. So he protested by taking bath, washing clothes and doing yoga in the pothole he walked on. The video has gone viral.
