Mysuru, May 26:- It has been raining cats and dogs in Chamarajanagar district and surrounding areas since a couple of days. The roads are in a total mess and it has become tough for vehicles to ply on the roads. It is only potholes every where. Having waited for more than a week for the civic authorities to take action, seeing no result, people resorted to unique way of protest, by planting saplings on the roads. Road near Bramaramba Layout has been completely damaged due to incessant rain. The drainage system has also been thrown out of gear. Left with no other alternative, the public resorted to this unique way to protest against official apathy.
