We face dangerous problem every day to walk and drive vehicles on these  damaged roads. Due to broken condition of the roads it is very risky for vehicle movement. In rainy season we face fearful condition for pedestrians and vehicle driving. Rain water stands here and there in uncountable pits; due to not having brick soiling muddy roads stop our movement in rainy season. For not having drainage management and box culvert rain water flows along the damage roads and accelerating its condition more critical. We have appealed to the concerned authority to do maintenance the roads many times but no body takes us seriously. Political leaders visit us only election period and give us false expectation.”
