Jamshedpur, Nov 24: A Bharatiya Janata Morcha (BJM) delegation met DSP (Traffic) and handed a demand note seeking immediate removal of temporary barricading set up by the district administration on the Dimna Road leading to New Purulia Road and Old Purulia Road and claimed that it was causing great inconvenience to the people. One of the BJM delegates pointed out that people from Mango who had to go to destinations along Old or New Purulia Roads had to cross the Mango Bridge, take a turn at the roundabout near the Mango Bust Stand and return along the other side of the Mango Bridge to reach their destinations which involved additional travel of nearly half a kilometer. Another delegate stated that sometimes, to avoid the roundabout method of going to Purulia Road from Mango, some people resorted to taking the wrong side that was prone to cause accidents. The delegation added that traffic snarls on the bridge and the Khudiram Bose roundabout was caused by these makeshift barricades that had been placed since the last nine months giving harrowing times to commuters.
The BJM delegation, in their protest note to the Traffic DSP suggested that the administration should curtail the radius of the Mango (Khudiram Bose) roundabout and make the road wider. The BJM delegation warned that if the administration did not take note of the protest and meet the demand, the BJP Olidih unit along with all party members would be forced to take the path of agitation while adhering to all COVID-19 norms until the barricades were removed. The DSP assured the BJM delegates that he would take up the issue with the SSP and the DC and try to bring about an amicable solution. The BJM delegation included Kulvinder Singh Pannu, Pravin Singh, Dharmendra Prasad, Akash Shah, Rajesh Kumar, Prem Saxena and others.
