Taking charge of green protest against the poor maintenance of roads in district Shivamogga of Karnataka, school-going students planted various saplings in the potholes on the road.
The protesting volunteers were the members of Vidyarthi Sanghatane, a student organisation in the state.
According to the students, four-time Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, who is currently in the chair, have ignored the constituency and done nothing to resolve the problems of potholes. Moreover, the CM’s son KS Eshwarappa, who is currently a senior minister in the cabinet, also a three-time MP followed his father’s suit in the matter. Incidentally, the father-son duo hails from Shivamogga.
Highlighting the inconvenience in transportation to the locals and the general public, Vinay Rajavath said that people are struggling with everyday commutation on the street. Rajavath is the president of Vidyarthi Sanghatane.
“Be it any party, all have ruined the youth’s life as no constructive development has taken place in the area. I have written a letter in my blood stating the issues of Shivamogga including potholes,” he claimed.
Speaking to media, a student volunteer said: “Yediyurappa-led government is not concerned about development and four-time Chief Minister is less brilliant in administration.”
With placards containing protest messages in their hands, the students raised slogans against the ruling BJP government in Karnataka. They demanded an immediate solution to the matter at hand.
