In a unique protest, residents of Bharathinagar, near Cox Town in central Bengaluru sought to draw the attention of civic authorities on the bad condition of the roads by performing puja to potholes here on Tuesday.

The protesting residents had hired two priests who performed puja to the potholes here. A video of the same was posted on Twitter, following which netizens slammed the BBMP.

“Frustrated by potholes & craters, citizens invoke gods. Puja on Campbell Road by Bharathinagar Residents Forum Down. Why can’t the tech-city fix its roads?” tweeted a user.

Residents said that the numerous potholes, especially on the Charles Campbell Road here pose a risk to motorists. They further alleged that the authorities have not acted on the complaints registered on the BBMP’s Sahaya platform about the road conditions.

Frustrated by this apathy, people are now venting their ire against the civic body on social media platforms by tagging BBMP officials and elected representatives in the hope that repair works are undertaken immediately.
