The current triple-engine government has made the situation in Maharashtra very miserable. All the major roads in the state are riddled with potholes, making driving and commuting life-threatening. Congress Legislature Party leader Balasaheb Thorat raised an angry question, saying that every pothole in the road testifies to the incompetence of the Mahayuti government.

Senior leader Balasaheb Thorat had come to Nashik on the occasion of the North Maharashtra Divisional Review Meeting. On this occasion, he interacted with the journalists. Thorat said the condition of the Nashik-Mumbai highway is bad. A journey of two and a half hours takes four to four and a half hours. One has to wait for an hour at one place. In Bhiwandi, it has become difficult to find out which is the road and which are the potholes. Traffic congestion in Bhiwandi is becoming life-threatening. No one is ready to say a word about the stones on this highway, but the toll collection is going on without a hitch. This is the situation on most of the highways in the state. Dissatisfaction is increasing in the public mind.

Thorat said Congress raised its voice about the traffic jams and potholes on the Nashik-Mumbai highway during the session. The minister also promised to take immediate action on it. We had also explained the seriousness of this issue to the Chief Minister, but instead of improving the traffic jam, it has increased.

Bala Saheb Thorat said, “Every crisis reminds us of the incompetence of the government. Every bump the common man gets while driving through potholes on the Nashik-Mumbai Road is a reminder of the incompetence of the triple-engine government. A lot of tolls are levied, but there is no simple repair of the roads, and the government is not ready to find a way out of the traffic jam. 

The question is: what should Raj Thackeray take regarding the toll? But there is a huge outcry among the people and the Congress is with this outcry of the people. The position of Congress is clear in the matter of road potholes. We raised this question repeatedly in the assembly. As there is no alternative from the government, there is a lot of anger in the minds of the people due to the huge tolls and huge potholes. Many people opt for trains to reach Mumbai. I request many ruling MLAs to try traveling on this road by train instead of train, so that you too will bring the pathetic condition of this road to the attention of the Chief Minister.”
