Bangalore Road Built At ₹6 Crores For PM Modi’s Visit Breaks Down A Day Later

A Southern Bangalore road, Jnana Bharthi Main Road connecting to the Dr BR Ambedkar School of Economics (BASE) University, which was recently revamped before PM Narendra Modi arrived in the city, caved in after a moderate rain spell. The road, repaired using over ₹6 crores went back to the same condition in just 24 hours. Several Bangalore roads filled with potholes were fixed before PM Modi’s arrival in Bangalore and Mysuru.

Bangalore Roads Asphalted Using ₹23.5 Crore

Prior to PM Modi’s visit, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) had taken the initiative to renovate several roads and areas in the city with big potholes. A whopping ₹23.5 Crore was used by the BBMP to do so. However, only after a day of its inauguration, the road went back to its previous state. Karnataka CM, Basavaraj Bommai has directed the commissioner to initiate a probe into the matter. This was an embarrassment not only to the city authorities but to the government as well.

The chief minister’s office made a tweet on their official account, announcing the probe.


The CM’s office also informed in their tweet that the leakage in a water line had devasted the roads once again.
