This patch of road in Abul Fazal Enclave is at the centre of attraction these days. Commuters and gramin seva drivers talk about the hardship while crossing the road. A gramin seva driver said many e-rickshaws have turned turtle on this road.
When asked were passengers injured, he said yes some received minor injuries. When its rain, drivers don’t get an idea where the potholes are and it becomes extremely difficult to travel, he said.
The road is in bad shape with several potholes. A few months ago, when Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had visited Jamia Nagar and travelled on this road there were hope that things might be improved, said a resident, adding that temporary patch up work was done to level the uneven road but after rain it all washed away and things have gone from bad to worst.
An auto driver, who visited the locality to drop a passenger in AFE, was left stumped after seeing the conditions of the road. “It looks as if the residents are dead here. Why don’t people raise their voices? It gives an impression that the area has no representatives. I get pained whenever I come to this locality looking at the pathetic condition of the road,” he said requesting not to be quoted.
