Issues that were pointed out 15 years ago in this forum are being solved now. A non-responsive and non-accountable democracy is a curse upon people. These tactics are what kept the people poor, fearful, non-innovative, backwards for 70+ years since independence and made India a bankrupt, pariah nation. People now need to crack the whip and hold these politicians and bureaucrats fully accountable. I am glad that India finally has a central government that is very strict in implementing laws. If only we had governments like this 50 years ago, India would have been such a different place now. What a shame that we have lost entire generations to poverty and backwardness.The good news first: Finally, they seem to be have figured out that they have to remove the sand/mud/debris accumulating along the edges of the roadways and medians.
Now the bad:
They are using the primitive method of collecting the accumulated soil/sand/debris manually, literally by hand using that "chatti". Idiots, what happened to all those mechanized road cleaning machines they purchased years ago. Yep, I know, they have literally been eaten up by poor maintenance and probably sold off for scrap and the officials probably pocketed the money.
meanwhile, hundreds of road users (mainly 2 - wheelers) were maimed and killed by this. Not to mention the fact, this makes the entire city, dusty and when the rains come causes flooding. F**king incompetent and corrupt idiots.
