Sehore (Madhya Pradesh): The road connecting Kotwali square to trauma centre in Sehore is in tatters, just a month after it was constructed at a cost of Rs 30 lakh, official sources said on Wednesday.

Locals alleged that the road had been built using materials of sub-standard quality and immense negligence was also exercised in carrying out the construction works, due to the connivance of the road contractors and officials.

According to sources, potholes and craters have again surfaced on the road, due to heavy downpours in Sehore, which blatantly display the abysmal works carried out by the ones who had been entrusted with the responsibility of road construction. During the summer season, the asphaltization works of the roads lying in numerous wards of the town had been carried out under the Kayakalp yojana. The road, however, is again rendered in a battered condition, which propagates the message of negligence and working just for the name-sake. Apart from battered roads, water-logging is also a common phenomenon there, which is a nightmare for the commuters taking the road.

Sub-engineer Prachi Gupta, posted at the Sehore municipality, said that repair works of the road shall be carried out soon. Chief municipal officer (CMO) of Sehore, Yogendra Patel termed the phenomenon to be a result of the electricity-repair related works, which had been ongoing in the area for quite some time. He promised that the contractors shall conduct the repair works there again.
