Kishor Kadam blasts highway authorities

Kadam penned a long note on Facebook which read, "While travelling from Mumbai to Pune, they charge Rs 240 for toll on the express highway. If we get down at Lonavala to grab a bite and get back on the highway, why are we charged Rs 240 again? Why is no one talking about the loot which is happening under the garb of collecting tolls?"

He went on to say that money gets deducted through FASTagthroughout the journey and messages keep popping up about the same, and asked if anyone has questioned it.

"Stop the loot! Just because people are mum, does that mean you will loot them? Whom should we approach to complain about this? Who is answerable for this menace?" he asked.

Kadam's post has garnered a lot of attention and several people too shared similar experiences under the post, complaining of unnecessary tolls on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.
