Modi’s visit to the state: AAP demands for pothole-ride

Bengaluru, June 15: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit Mysuru on Yoga day. In context to the same, Aam Aadmi is organising a people’s movement and we demand honourable prime minister to visit Bengaluru to see the potholes in the city so that he understands and feels the plight of a common man.

Speaking to the media persons at the Press Club on Tuesday, Mohan Dasari, AAP Bengaluru City President, said, “To convey the intensity, significance and rationality behind this movement, to ease the commuters plight, We are organising a postcard movement demanding Prime Minister Narendra Modi to have a look at the vandalised roads (potholes) of the Garden City. We hope these personalised notes will help the prime minister understand the mann ki baat of the people of Bengaluru. This activity will start from Friday, June 17, wherein the party volunteers will talk to vehicle commuters and give them postcards which quotes ‘Prime Minister, please come to see the beauty of Bengaluru potholes’ written on them. The vehicle commuters will join hands with us to intensify the movement.”

To present the data, “Over the last five years, more than Rs 20,000 crore has been released from the state government for the development of Bengaluru roads. Thanks to the rampant corruption in the BJP government, that money has never met the right cause, resulting in lakhs of potholes across the city. BBMP has officially stopped counting or keeping track of potholes and now marking roads as ‘with pothole’ and ‘without pothole’. The Aam Aadmi Party has shown due diligence in the interest of people and has repeatedly protested against this and has registered more than 70 police complaints so far. Yet no action has been taken against the culprits. Pothole related Road accidents and deaths have increased significantly and the government neither is fixing the problem nor does have the courtesy to even give proper compensation for the family of the deceased,” Mohan Dasari said.

Suresh Rathod, A A P Bengaluru City Organisation Secretary, said, “Bengaluru is not only the state capital but also a city of international significance. It is the second largest city in the country with highest tax payers and significant export revenue generating industries. But the BJP government, which calls itself a double engine government, is ruining the city instead of developing it. Large enterprises are migrating to other states due to the negligence of the BJP in the development of basic infrastructure, roads, etc.”

New state office:
We are extremely happy to announce that the new state headquarters of the Aam Aadmi Party has been set up at Railway Parallel road in Kumara Park West, and it will be inaugurated at 11am on Thursday, June 16. Mohan Dasari informed that Dilip Pandey, Party’s state in-charge and national spokesperson, will inaugurate the new office.”
