Hubballi: The Congress party workers staged a unique protest in the city condemning the poor condition of the roads. The city’s roads, which were already in poor condition, have deteriorated because of the continuous rain over the last three days.
Because of the stagnation of the water, potholed roads resemble swimming pools. The Vidyanagar Block Congress members organised a unique protest to draw the attention of elected representatives of the Assembly segment and authorities by sailing paper boats across the water-filled potholes near Akshay Park in the city.
They erected cut-outs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and District-In-Charge Minister Jagadish Shettar in the water-filled potholes and garlanded the cut-outs of the leaders.
Vidyanagar Block Congress president Rajat Ullagaddimath led the protest, former mayor Venkatesh Mestri, Maltesh Kulkarni, Mallikarjun Yetgeri, Sunil Mathpathi, Manikanth Gudihal and others were present.
