The residents rued over the fact that dilapidated roads of city were repaired in select areas ahead of Prime Minister’s visit on November 15. However, the roads in other parts of the city were not repaired even after three years.

They said the tender of Rs 3 crore was floated but work is stuck over non-payment of dues.
