Thane residents launch ‘No road, no vote’ campaign

In Thane, until now, five to six people have lost their lives due to potholes, yet, neither Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) nor concerned organisations are doing anything to improve the condition, believe Thane citizens. In order to reach out to TMC officials, Thane Citizen’s Foundation decided to launch ‘No road, No vote’ campaign to voice their protest.

On Friday, Thane Citizen’s Foundation started their campaign where members of the foundation staged a protest at Thane’s Janaki Devi Nagar asking to fill up potholes. Along with this, the foundation organised a satirical prayer meet on the road and placed garlands near the potholes, where residents participated as well. Enraged residents said that they will not vote until they get good roads to commute.

Along with this, the foundation is also planning to organise a car rally from Waghbil Naka, Ghodbunder Road to Anand Nagar toll naka in the opposition of traffic jam that is increasing day by day, said citizens.  

We have written a letter to TMC, police, and PWD to relieve Thanekars from the menacing potholes. We have demanded to fill up the potholes as soon as possible,” Kasber Augustine, President, Thane Citizen’s Foundation.
