Chandigarh: Pothole ‘vanishes’ hours after BJP councillor falls, breaks arm
BJP councillor Vinod Aggarwal fractured his right arm after he lost his balance and fell on a pockmarked street at Manimajra on Sunday, where he had gone to attend a jagran
He fell near the main bazaar’s entrance adjoining the qila after tripping on a pothole full of slush, after which he was advised rest of a month.
Aggarwal alerted the local BJP councillor, Jagtar Singh Jagga, soon after the incident.
Soon after, civic officials were quick to fill this particular pothole while turning a blind eye to a host of other craters on the street
Mostly devoid of street lights, the stretch is a challenge for commuters, especially those on two-wheelers, many of whom have met with accidents.
Sanjay Bhajni, a local resident, said that for the last one and a half years, they have been consistently requesting the local authorities to fill the potholes, but in vain.
