Mysuru, October 20:- When the civic body – Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) often turns a blind eye to address people’s problems, the Traffic Police personnel face the ire from travelling two and four-wheeler riders. Before things could go worse on the roads, the traffic policemen of Devaraja Traffic Police Station have risen to the occasion to perform the duty of MCC officials and workers to fill up roads full of potholes at prominent places and traffic junctions that pose danger to motorists.
The men in ‘khaki’ of Devaraja Traffic Police on Monday (October 19) took up the filling of potholes on the busy Hardinge Circle junction which connects six roads – leading to Mysuru Palace, Dasara Exhibition Ground, Mysuru KSRTC Bus Terminal, Albert Victor Road, Chamundi Hill and Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens.
On coming to know about a pothole of about four feet deep, the Devaraja Traffic Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Subramanya with his staff Swamy and Sugu took the initiative to bring two bags of cement, crushed stones and sand with their own money and filled up the pothole to ensure smooth traffic movement on the road.
This act of traffic policemen has earned appreciation from the Devaraja Traffic Inspector Muniappa and from the citizens. (NAV, HN)
