A state highway in miserable state

PADUBIDRI : The road near the Holy Cross in Katapady Gram Panchayat limits present a pathetic sight during monsoons. Rain water flows royally on this state highway in the absence of proper side drains.

It is indeed a sorry sight to see school children and other members of the general public virtually wade through the knee deep water which settles on this road whenever there is heavy rain. Residents of the area complain that the failure of the authorities to clear the clogged drains has led to this problem. Every year whenever there is some complaint, the authorities do some temporary repair work which never lasts long, the villagers complain and say they would resort to protest unless some permanent solution is found to this problem at the earliest.
