Mangaluru, Oct 27: With the Prime Minister Narendra Modi making his first ever visit to participate in a programme in Dakshina Kannada on 29th October, the local BJP party workers seem to have gone hyper in their enthusiasm to draw their leader’s attention. In the process they have thrown caution to the winds while painting the town saffron with the welcome banners and buntings.
This flex board, for example which is installed at Kasibettu on the Mangalore-Belthangady Highway is clearly putting the citizens in danger as it is tied to a road safety signboard. The warning sign is installed along a dangerous curve in the road to caution road users to slow down and watch their wheels. But those who have put up this board on behalf of Ranjan G. Gowda, President of BJP Belthangady Unit seem to have no concern for road safety.
One can only hope this will not result in a tragedy to innocent people due to the recklessness of a few.
