BJP Women's Wing Chief of Karnataka, Shilpa Ganesh has lashed out at Congress as the series of deaths due to pothole continue in Bengaluru.
BJP leader Shilpa Ganesh has always been vocal in pointing out the loopholes of the Siddaramaiah government. This time she has shared a picture of a woman who lost balance fell on Nayandahalli Road near Rajarajeshwari Nagar in Bengaluru and died on the spot.
It can be remembered that last week, a couple met with a tragic end due to potholes near Sirsi Circle in Bengaluru.
Shilpa has taken a dig at the Siddaramaiah government and has written:
"This is the condition of citizens who voted for Congress and brought them to power. The CM had taken a tour of the city just three months ago and had said that all the potholes would be filled soon. He had also warned of action against the officers concerned if the work is not completed soon and he went back to sleep.
However, like all his promises, this too met an end even before starting it. CM even gave a statistics that Rs 4,000 crore has been spent on filling the potholes. But people have a question, which potholes were filled with this money?
Another life has been lost to potholes in the Rajarajeshwari Nagar limits on Nayandalli Road. There is no value to innocent lives. MLA of the Constituency, Muniratna has no time to inspect the area and to set the problem right. He is busy in his managing his business and producing movies.
The roads have turned into swimming pools. The roadsides stink with the carcass and drainage. People are fearing of coming in contact with contagious diseases. But our Chief Minister and MLAs are trying to fool people by telling that measures will be taken after the rainy season.
Don't know how many more lives have to be sacrificed for the government to wake up.
However, the Chief Minister visited the spot on Nayandalli Road and has directed the official concerned to fill the potholes within fifteen days.
