The horrible road condition triggered the video
It was a personal experience that triggered Macwin Ian D’Souza to go ahead and make a video about the city’s roads. He said: “I was heading somewhere and the navigation led me to this road three days ago. The condition of almost all the roads in that particular area was the same. When I was shooting the reel, I myself witnessed a food delivery guy fall off from his bike due to the slippery road.“
BBMP responds to the video
After the content viral and many started sharing it, BBMP Chief Commissioner Gaurav Gupta responded to it. He said: “I have asked the engineers to identify the exact location. There are some areas that have bylanes that pass through private property not looked after by the BBMP. Otherwise, our officials would have repaired them just like they attend to every other road. However, we will recheck this road and ensure that its condition is improved.”
