I would like to bring to your notice the miserable condition of roads in Mysuru city. The roads are broken at many places. As a result vehicles cannot move smoothly, they get stuck in the pits which leads to damage of the vehicles as well as the person riding. This kind of roads increases the number of accidents.
On 18th August at around 10.45 pm I had experienced the same. While travelling from Radhakrishnanagar to Vijayanagar via Ring Road, my car got stuck in the pit. Fortunately all five occupants in the car escaped with minor injuries but the car was damaged heavily.
The pit was not visible due to flooding on the road and lack of street lights on the Ring Road. There was no barricade put up by Police and none of the Police was there to guide the vehicles. Police came only when I called and complained.
The buses, trucks, cars, three and two-wheelers have to halt after every minute just to avoid the broken roads and pits.
Citizens pay a number of taxes to ensure smooth running of Government. In turn, the Government should also provide basic facilities like good motorable roads and safe environment to the citizens. The repair works done by Government agencies are shoddy and do not last long.
I hope the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, the Departments concerned, the MCC and the local leaders will take immediate steps to resolve these issues before Dasara.
