Kondhwa, October 16, 2022: Traffic between Gangadham and Shatrunjay Mandir Road is increasing rapidly. In the absence of a new notification requesting the prohibition of heavy goods vehicles, they enter the locality. The traffic scenario has gone from bad to worse leading to frequent accidents. This causes inconvenience to the people of Kondhwa. So, to get the attention of the Municipal Corporation, the Kondhwa Development Forum decided to protest against those responsible.

The protest started at Aai Mata Mandir at 8:00 a.m. Protesters were told to wear white, with black ribbons. The rally rode up to Gangadham Chowk. The demonstrators used the slogans “No Road No Tax”, “Vahtuk Kondi sutlich paheje, ha rasta zalach pahije (Traffic must be reduced and the road must be made)” and “Amchya magnya purn kara, nahitr khurchya khali kara (Satisfy our requests or leave the chair).

One of the protesters said, “Kondhwa Development Forum is a group where we discuss problems and officially find a solution. For the past six months we have been trying to reach officials regarding this issue, but ignorance is what we have received. Thus, a rally was the only choice left.

Speaking about the claims, another protester said: “Although heavy vehicles are not allowed on this road, they do pass through it causing fatal accidents. We require a helpline number for this route that we can contact in the event of an accident.

Protesters demanded a signal or divider so traffic can be managed and accidents can be reduced.

“Temporarily, we can at least use signs to guide drivers,” Assistant Police Inspector Balasaheb Murhe said. “I do my best to manage the traffic. The necessary measures will be taken against this problem.
