Clad in all red attire, they chanted war songs to decry the abandonment of the roads by the successive governments, thus calling on authorities to fix the road.

Commercial drivers who joined the protest are asking the government to put the roads in the area into a better shape within one month or face the consequences.

“This is not a feeder road, it is a high way. We don’t want any maintenance on the roads. They should reconstruct the road for us.  We are pleading government to do something about this. We pay road tolls but these bad roads are spoiling our cars. The President must respond”, one driver said.
