ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “District Minister inspects road concrete works”

  1. Great that the road in front of the palace is being given a face lift by concrete application. But in front of palace the when the road runs there is no supporting barricade to hold the mud bank in place. I think a concrete wall need to be build in dodaakere maidana to hold the road as well as to prevent vehicles, and pedestrians from falling down. Pls do check once.
