As Mr Kumaraswamy rushes to inaugurate the airport road flyover, most likely today, I took a look and noticed two things.
First, they are ready to open only the main section of the flyover, just the road-bridge over airport road. No way is this project inauguration worthy. There is mess around waiting to be cleaned up. And the loops that allow free left turns – they promise to complete these by August – look like being good 3 months away from completion.
Two, in their excitement to celebrate the inauguration function, these morons have punctured the newly laid road to put up a huge tent for the occasion. I was really shocked to see that!
While we could forgive BDA for premature announcement about flyover being ready (they have since said the project is not 100% complete), the seemingly trivial job of digging up the new road even before inauguration is so annoying.
Are these guys brain dead? Why do 10 inch thick roads and talk about maintenance and road digging policies for BWSSB and BESCOM when you yourself are willing to puncture holes through them. Perhaps its the JD(S) workers who did this, to make sure they organize a grand function to please their leader. If yes, then will they pay to patch or resurface the road?
BTW, BDA has almost admitted to the High Court that Rs 9.11 crores were wasted on this project due to their negligence.
The road digging incident further shows that, really, public money flows like water here.
