On lack of footpaths on Mangaluru roads, CPM Mangaluru city unit has said CPM will start a legal battle against MCC and file a complaint against MCC Commissioner, in failing to provide basic facilities to pedestrians. Addressing a protest rally organised on Falnir Road (Mother Theresa Road) on Wednesday, CPM District Secretary Sunil Kumar Bajal said in the interest of public, a PIL will be filed in the court. The absence of footpaths at K S Rao Road, Falnir Road, Jyothi-Bunts Hostel Road has forced people to walk on the road. "The well-laid out concrete roads have become pedestrian's nightmare. Lack of footpaths along key stretches of concrete roads force the latter to walk on the road risking their life. Along with footpaths, there are no storm water drains. As a result, rain water flows on the road itself. When it rains, a mini pool is created in front of Jyothi bus stand, and there are chances of muddy water getting splashed on people especially students who wait for buses." Pedestrians in ...
