Belur: The Belur-Bikkodu-Sakaleshpur road has been badly damaged and the temporary pothole patching work is very poor and delayed. Contractors are working on the attic. The officials concerned have kept silent about this. Due to the sheer dust of the road, people are suffering from diseases. Soon the road work should be done with speed and quality. The villagers of Bikkodu protested and expressed their outrage.
Mohan and Srinivas, members of Gram Pancha Yiti who spoke to the newspaper about this, said that the Belur-Bikkodu-Sakaleshpura road has deteriorated drastically in the last four years. The reason is that the road is blocked due to heavy lorry traffic and traffic is impossible during the rainy season. As a result of the discussion held by everyone in this regard, Rs 2.5 crore money has been released for closing the pothole. But due to the carelessness of the tendered contractor, the job of sealing the potholes is very poor. As an example of this, the road passing between Bikkodu Town disappeared 15 days ago, and a huge gravel was placed on the road. Gravel from the tires of the coming vehicles is causing injury to the glass of the houses and to the pedestrians. Also, in the scorching sun, due to the dust, people are constantly drifting to the hospital. They put water on the road just as a pretext. If asked, the contractor will speak from Udape. Now the engineer says that the work of closing the pothole is poor and I will not give permission. To whom should we complain, people’s representatives are going from house to house asking for election. He claimed to rule with the newspaper that he does not know who should die there.
The government has released Rs 96 lakh per km for pothole sealing work which has started for the last 2 months. But the contractor has started the work of closing the pothole as he likes. He warned that since the Belur-Bikkodu-Sakaleshpur road is related to the state highway, the officials should break their silence and carry out the work quickly, otherwise, they will block the road and hold a fierce protest.
Abdul Razak, Pinto, Rangaswamy, Dharma, Ganesh, Arish, Devaraj, Kantaraj, Vasant, Palaksha, and others strongly condemned the incident in the protest.
