Mangaluru: A young man held a solo silent protest in front of the Mangaluru City Corporation building at Lalbagh in the city demanding safe roads. The young man’s resolve attracted the attention of the passers-by on Thursday evening.

Through this unique protest, the youngster, Likhith Rai, wanted to draw the attention of the administration to the bad condition of roads that endangered the lives of motorists, especially two-wheeler drivers. He held a placard that read “Justice for Athish Mangalore needs  ‘Road Suraksha Bandhan’ #PotholeSeAzaadi”

When Udayavani asked him about the meaning behind the slogan on the placard, Rai said he lost his dear friend Athish (20), a resident of Konchadi in a road accident last Friday. As it was raining, Athish did not notice a pothole on the highway near Kandettu Cross. When he tried to dodge the pothole at the last moment, he lost control of the scooter and hit the divider.

Athish sustained severe injuries after his head hit the divider and he died on the way to the hospital, he added.

Rai said he wanted to express the pain of losing a friend through the silent protest.

Further, he added that the officials have assured to get the potholes filled at the earliest.
