Rohtak Zila Parishad chief on indefinite dharna to get village road built

Tribune News Service

Rohtak, July 22

Unable to get a small stretch of road between Bohar and Bhalauth villages on the Rohtak-Sonepat highway built, local Zila Parishad (ZP) chairman and BJP leader Satish Kumar sat on an indefinite dharna along with the sarpanch and other residents.

The road has not been constructed for years despite concerted efforts and letters to the state, district and department authorities. Residents of these villages as well as commuters travelling on the Rohtak-Sonepat road have to face grave inconvenience due to the potholes, which have worsened due to heavy downpour.

"The road is in a miserable condition for nearly four years. Accidents take place every other day, some of which even prove fatal. I have tried my best to get the road built, but to no avail. Now we will end the dharna only after the work on the road begins," Kumar, who belongs to Bhalauth village, said while talking to The Tribune on Wednesday.

He said the dharna was being staged since Tuesday, but no official of the district administration or the Public Works Department (PWD) had visited them so far. "Several sarpanches, parishad and panchayat members and municipal councillors have called up and offered their support, but we have requested them not to join the dharna physically due to Covid," he added.
