Protest against potholes in Bengaluru

Following rains last week, the road was flooded for two days. Repeated complaints to the BBMP have not evoked a response.

On September 4, residents gathered on the road, which was muddy and wet owing to stagnation of rainwater. They brought a boat and offered rides for ₹20 per passenger to draw the attention of authorities to the condition of the road. They also planted saplings on the road.
