Members of Vidyarthi Sanghatane, a student organisation, along with other students staged a protest against poor road conditions in Shivamogga by planting saplings in potholes on Friday, October 25. As per the students, four-time Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa and three-time MP and senior Minister KS Eshwarappa, son of BS Yediyurappa, both are from Shivamogga, but they have done nothing to resolve the problems of potholes.
Students along with the members of of Vidyarthi Sanghatane staged a protest and have planted saplings in these potholes. A student who is part of the protest said, “Yediyurappa-led government is not concerned about development and four-time Chief Minister is less brilliant in administration.”
Vinay Rajavath, president of Vidyarthi Sanghatane, said that people are struggling to move on the street every day and added that whichever part is in power, they “all have ruined the youth’s life as no constructive development has taken place in the area.” He also said that he has written a letter in blood stating the issues of Shivamogga including potholes.
The students raised slogans against the BJP government in the state and demanded an immediate solution, while holding placards in their hands.
