Bengaluru, July 26, 2022: In a unique protest to highlight the bad condition of roads in Bengaluru, an organisation called ’Changemakers of Kanakapura Road’ held a protest with a man dressed up as Yamaraja, the god of death, along with a buffalo.



In the video of the symbolic protest that was widely circulated on social media, the man dressed as Yamaraja can be seen standing in the middle of the road with the buffalo as protesters shouted slogans.

"Yamaraja on roads? Dont be surprised, the MLA Krishnappa & BDA has given tender to yama to take away people! Yesterday #CMKR did an unique protest against the #pothole roads of Anjanapura. Even after a very rigorous protests last year the MLA & BDA hasnt woken up!" Changemakers of Kanakapura Road tweeted.


"We chose the Yamadharmaraja theme because this stretch of road is the best example of real ’naraka darshan’ (hell) for the commuters using this road," said Abdul Aleem from Changemakers of Kanakapura Road.

"This stretch of road is in horrible condition since over 10 years. Not only this, but all Anjanapura roads are the same or in worse conditions. Last time, our unique protest yielded results but only 2 km of the road was asphalted even though Rs 25 crore was released for 13 km of the road," said Aleem.

"Even after so much naming and shaming both the MLA and BDA authorities, they haven’t woken up. Residents continue to suffer," he added.

Pointing out the issues the residents have faced, Aleem said an ambulance couldn’t go to an apartment and the patient had to be taken in a car. "The resident recently died in the hospital."

Urging the Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) and the local MLA to asphalt the roads soon to solve commuting issues, Aleem warned of aggressive protests in the days to come if the issue is not solved at the earliest.
