Give facilities to citizens suffering from road and drainage problems and punish the corrupt
The ‘Khada Saptah’ (Pit Week) program was launched by the city congress in the wake of potholes developed on city roads during the rains. On Monday, a tree was planted in one of the pit at Old Padra Road and issued a challenge to the corporation to calculate the pits.
The Congress held demonstrations with banners and posters against the corporation officials.
On Monday the Congress President Prashant Patel, Leader of the Opposition Chandrakant Srivatsav, Congress corporators, office bearers and activists were present at Malhar Point Char Rasta, Old Padra Road to raise their protest.
Holding placards they shouted slogans against BJP and corruption and symbolic protest by planting saplings inside the pits. Congress President Prashant Patel put number boards near the pits and challenged the municipality to count them.
Congress president Prashant Patel said, Vadodara is known as a sanskarnagri, but due to the corruption in the corporation, the people of the city are not getting clean drinking water, suffering from epidemics due to drainage problems.
Citizens have been put in trouble due to potholes on all the roads in Vadodara city. Riders have started getting back pain due to potholes on the city roads and their vehicles are also being damaged.
Leader of Opposition Chandrakant Srivastava said, that despite spending lots of money on roads, clean water and drainage facilities, people are not getting any facilities.
Congress corporators have repeatedly urged the mayor to provide roads, drainage and clean water to people at the corporation meeting, but corporation’s administrators have failed miserably in providing facilities to the people of Vadodara due to corrupt contractors.
