Fed up with the inaction of the municipal company and what they termed as apathy of the district in-charge Minister Jagadish Shettar, Youth Congress members of Hubballi performed a “paper boat race” for kids in potholes of town on Monday.
In the occasion organised as a protest, kids took half with paper boats having pictures of Mr. Jagadish Shettar and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and appeared to take pleasure in with their paper boats for some time in the potholes of New Cotton Market in Hubballi.
Meanwhile, members of the Hubballi Dharwad Central Constituency unit of the Youth Congress stated that regardless of repeated pleas and protests by residents in the dual cities, the Minister and the municipal administration had failed to reply to appeals towards the pathetic state of the roads.
They stated that they had been compelled to conduct the “boat race” in a bid to make the Minister and the administration open their eyes to the hardships being confronted by the folks.
Rajat Ullagaddimath, Shahzaman Mujahid and others, who led the distinctive protest, stated that they hoped that at the very least now pothole filling work is taken up, as a brief measure.
