About a month ago, Free Press had prominently published the news of potholes on PHE-Jalud Fata. Despite giving complete information about the potholes to MPRDC, no action was taken to repair the road. MPRDC's deputy manager Varsha Awasthi said during the discussion regarding the pits on the PHE-Jalud Fata after the accident that the potholes would be filled in the next two working days.
