The condition of Ujjain-Jhalawar Road, which has been converted into a National Highway, has gone from bad to worse.

To protest this, the Congress workers started this yatra from Ghattiya on Tuesday.

Ramlal Malviya, who reached Kothi Palace at around 2 pm, was accompanied by a whole team of local leaders. He also gave a memorandum to the officials to repair the road.
