Bengaluru: The BBMP has once again given itself a bad name through its pothole filling deadline drama. In a hurry to meet its November 10 deadline which ended on Sunday, BBMP resorted to shoddy and substandard work in filling up potholes.

A reality check by Asianet Newsable has exposed the poor job done by the BBMP on Mother Teresa Road in Richmond Road, where a pothole has caved in within 24 hours of repair.

The loose bitumen serves as an example that in a hurry to fill up the potholes, the BBMP just filled in the gaps as a cover up and did not take measures to ensure a permanent fix.
