DYFI protest against delay in railway underpass work

Submitted by Kumuda on Sat, 2016-06-25 12:54 Mangaluru: To condemn the inordinate delay in constructing railway underpass at Bajal, members of Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) staged a unique protest. Armed with nets, the protesters tried fishing in the area to mock the delay in constructing underpass at the area. Addressing the protesters, Santhosh Bajal, Secretary of DYFI accused both the state and railway department of being apathetic towards the project. As a result, during every monsoon, the stretch gets water clogged and motorists find it difficult to cross. “Although Mayor Harinath promised to address the issue in four days, Corporation officials have clearly said it is next to impossible,” said Santhosh. He threatened to stage a protest in front of the MCC if the authorities expedite the work here.
