A video is doing rounds on social media inviting huge embarrassment to the civil authorities for their failure to mend damaged road. The video shows two men from Gujarat’s Rajkot, protesting against the bad roads in a unique manner.
The duo, who appear to be truck drivers, partially buried themselves in the pothole at Greenland Chowkadi. Going by a report of The Indian Express, Lakshman Bathwar along with his friends reached the pothole on the service road of National Highway 27 with a tractor-trolly full of gravel and soil on Wednesday morning.
Bathwar and his friend Gangabhai Mer then la down in the pothole and asked other friends to pour mud over them. Later on, Bhathwar unloaded the trolley into the pothole and filled it up.
The incident was captured on the camera and is going viral on social media.
Surprisingly, Bathwar’s protest came on the day Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani visited the town and reiterated that the government had allotted Rs 25 crore to Rajkot Municipal Corporation for repairing rain-damaged roads.
