Gandhinagar: Are the roads in your area or the ones you use in dire need of repairs? All you need to do is send a WhatsApp message to the government.

The Gujarat government has launched a new campaign, inviting information from general public regarding bad roads in their areas. Citizens have to send a WhatsApp message on the number ‘9978403669’ with details like their name, mobile number, address of the place where repairs are needed, with the pincode.

As per the advertisement by the state government, the campaign will begin on October 1 and end on October 10.

The campaign, titled ‘Marg Maramat Maha Abhiyan’ has been announced by newly inducted Roads and Building minister Purnesh Modi.

Bad roads and potholes are a common sight during and after monsoon months. Even the roads that had been repaired just before the rains are in a dismal condition. It now remains to be seen how long the roads that are repaired as part of the campaign last.

The road repair campaign comes at a time when the BJP is intensifying its efforts to improve its seat tally in the Assembly elections scheduled next year.
