Karnataka highway inaugurated by PM Modi flooded in 6 days
Bengaluru-Mysuru Highway, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi six days ago got flooded owing to heavy rainfall in the Ramanagara region of Karnataka on Friday. Angry commuters took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express their angst. ‘Masterstroke.’ wrote one Twitter user @shaandelhite, posting a video of what he claimed was the Bengaluru-Mysuru Highway. The Highway was built with the aim to decongest the traffic from Bengaluru to Mysuru, thereby reducing the travel time from three hours to seventy five minutes. However, the same highway got inundated, six days after being inaugurated owing to heavy rainfall. According to reports, traffic was slower on Saturday owing to bumper-to-bumper accidents, as water stayed stagnant in the underridge on the highway. Notably, this is the same underbridge that flooded last year when Karnataka received unprecedented rains.Angry netizens took to Twitter to say that the ruling party in that state- Bharatiya Janata Party was ignorant and should have only opened the highway after thoroughly checking. “Newly inaugurated Bengaluru-Mysuru Highway by Narendra Modi. It’s condition after 6 days of inauguration. Masterstroke." wrote Shantanu on Twitter.
