Jamshedpur: In protest against potholes at the NH-33 stretch linking state capital and Jamshedpur will will witness blockade after Durga Puja.
The blockade aimed at sending a message to government will be undertaken by hundred of JVM activists led by Jamshedpur MP Ajoy Kumar. The announcement to this effect was made by JVM central secretary Abhay Singh to the media this forenoon at JVM office in Kasidih.
“‘The horrible condition of the NH-33 between Ranchi and Jamshedpur is a clear example of that negligence. If there is a delay on part of the NH agency then at least the state government should carry out temporary repairing of the highway. What is stopping the local government from improving the pathetic condition,” said Singh.
He said the stretch between Chandil and Dimna, on the NH-33, is pitiable and deserves immediate attention but concerned agencies of the state government are apparently insensitive to the issue.
“It is really sad that for the last several months I have only been receiving assurances from the senior authorities (of state road construction dept) but there’s no progress on the ground as far as NH construction work is concerned,” said Singh.
“NH 33 has become a death bed. It is a nightmare to travel from Chandil to Bahragora. Roads reflect the development of a state. But roads in Jharkhand have become bad to worse,” he noted.
