Nazim told that his purpose is to protest in different ways. So that the reality can be visible to the public and the concerned authorities. At least 10 of them planned similar protests in different parts of Malappuram. Where the condition of the roads had worsened for the last three months. Whereas the rain has made the condition of bad roads even more pathetic.
Meanwhile, The Kerala High Court has directed the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) to complete the maintenance work on all roads in the state within a week.
The court directed all district collectors to take appropriate action against the engineers and contractors responsible for potholes on the roads. The court also made it clear that the District Collectors, as heads of the concerned District Disaster Management Officers, also have the responsibility to improve the condition of the roads. Justice Devan Ramachandran asked whether the officers were waiting for death to take final action. The judge has also remarked that the collector cannot remain a mute spectator.
