Pothole menace: MNS dig up roads in front of Mantralaya in Mumbai
Maharashtra Navanirman Sena (MNS) workers damaged road in front of Mantralaya in Mumbai on Monday night to protest against potholes in the city.
Navi Mumbai MNS unit chief Gajanan Kale had warned that if the roads are not repaired, the next target would be Mantralaya, the state secretariat in south Mumbai.
Gajanan Kale, said, "If people are dying due to the poor condition of roads, MNS will continue to undertake such actions. If the roads are not repaired, the next target will be Mantralaya, the state secretariat in south Mumbai."
The MNS workers stormed in the office of the Public Works Department (PWD) at Turbhe claiming that the Sion-Panvel road is dotted with potholes and has endangered lives of commuters.
Members of the Raj Thackeray-led MNS attacked a government office in adjoining Navi Mumbai, to vent their ire over potholes dotting the 39-km stretch between Sion and Panvel.
Accidents on pothole-riddled roads have claimed five lives in adjoining Thane region since last month. The victims lost balance and fell as their two-wheeler hit potholes.
