After complaining to Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) time and again, no action was taken about potholes, so the residents of the HSR Layout area of the city performed pothole pooja.
“We have highlighted the pothole issue to the BBMP several times without their favourable response. Thus we decided to mock and shame them. We pay taxes and are willing to work with the BBMP, but with them continuing to be negligent, we were left with no other option,” said Kavitha Reddy, a member of Hasiru Dala (green force), which organized the pooja.
Previously, local artists had created a life-sized fibre crocodile to bring the dangerous condition of Bengaluru roads.
