Why waste tax-payers’ money on good roads?

March 28, 2023


Last evening at 4.30 pm, the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) began to thinly resurface a perfectly fine road right opposite Sankalp Central Park apartment in Yadavagiri which it did within the span of just an hour or two.

There are absolutely no potholes and the road is in very good condition except for a patch work to be done at the curve towards Joy ice-cream Circle.

When there are many bad roads which are crying for attention, why is MCC hell bent on so quickly resurfacing this road and wasting tax-payers’ money?

Today also asphalting work is in progress on the stretch and also towards Railway Under Bridge side from Sankalp Road.

Hope better sense prevails on the MCC authorities concerned to take up re-asphalting or patch work at other damaged roads that are crying for attention — like the nearby Jodithenginamara Road in Bannimantap that leads to Star of Mysore Office and JSS Dental College.

    Looks like Bjp has finally figured out how to keep the contractors happy even with getting 40 percent commission. This strategy was adopted by all prior governments. Congress mastered
    this technique that contractors don’t complain even about 50 percent if you don’t expect them to produce any results. Bjp did not get this strategy till now and started forcing the contractors to deliver the projects even after getting 4o percent.
    What you are seeing is the classic example. But in many cases the projects will be done only on paper
