Members of Samajavadi Party opposed the government’s decision to introduce toll at Mysuru-Nanjangud road.
Addressing a press meet here in the city on Monday, district president of SP, G M Gadkar said, “The state government has decided to introduce toll charges to those travelling on the Mysuru- Nanjangud road which is unlawful. The state government has just widened the old road to ease the traffic and vehicles plying on the road. But it is unlawful to introduce toll on vehicles plying on these roads. The decision will affect the localities and villagers who travel on the same roads.”
At the time of demonitisation, people are suffering from shortage of money. At this time, the government should not introduce toll fees at the Mysuru- Nanjangud road, they argued.
