Upset over the delay in the filling of potholes on Hyderabad's roads, Telangana Congress workers on Wednesday held a novel protest by filling several potholes with pictures of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and TRS working president K T Rama Rao, to level them.
The Congress workers, led by TPCC Minorities Department Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail, visited different areas of the city and dumped pictures of KCR and his son into the potholes on the roads.
Holding KCR and KTR responsible for the "pathetic" condition of roads in the twin cities, Sohail said that the Chief Minister had no time to visit any area in the capital city despite being the CM, and his son was busy with political activities.
Both had gone missing after the TRS gained control over the GHMC, he added.
Sohail said that the damages to the roads in the city had turned them into "killer roads" with 1,155 people killed in 8,783 road accidents in the three-and-a-half years after the TRS won the GHMC elections.
Of 1,258 accidents reported this year till June 30, as many as 446 cases pertained to two-wheelers, and 129 were killed, he added.
The Congress leader alleged that the TRS government was completely neglecting the twin cities, and that the Chief Minister had not conducted even a single review meeting on Hyderabad issues since he took charge for the second term in December 2018 despite holding the Municipal Administration & Urban Development portfolio.
TPCC spokesperson Syed Nizamuddin, City Congress Minorities Department Chairman Sameer Waliullah, Sajid Shareef and others participated in the agitation.
