Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah on Wednesday, while responding to a question during a press conference on the menace of potholes in Bengaluru, said ‘what can we do’.
With a smirk and a smile on his face, the CM cross-questioned a media person and said: “You suggest us what should we do”.
In the same fashion, Telangana CM KCR also said that it also rains in America and how can we stop it. The roads are damaged in Telananga and Hyderabad due to rain and people are using boats in some parts of Hyderabad.
It will take time for repairs KCR said. He said that it was not right to make an issue out of it.
Notably, at least four people have died in accidents this month because of the battered condition of some of the city’s roads.
The CM said that he has instructed the city civic body Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike to start the repair work of potholes ‘immediately’ and make the city roads pothole free within a fortnight.
