Good infrastructure is certainly one of the most important aspects which are needed for providing a good standard of living and though the Indian government and state governments are working a lot in this regard, still a lot remains to be done. There are many areas where roads don’t get repaired for long even after repeated complaints are made by citizens.
Sometimes a person finds it difficult to understand whether there are potholes on roads or there is road between potholes because they are in such a huge number. The social media platforms have given a new medium to the citizens of the country to raise their voices especially after no one in the authorities listen to them.
In one such interesting incident, some residents of Anuppur, Madhya Pradesh, have come up with a quite unique idea of protest as there is a giant pothole in the middle of the road which hasn’t been repaired by the authorities and due to rains, it has now got filled with water.
A video is going viral on the micro-blogging site Twitter in which some residents are seen having a gala time as they are using the pothole filled with water as a beach. They have decorated it with flowers and some people are sitting on the sides of the pothole while three people are sitting on chairs inside the pothole with their feet under the water and they are having soft drinks.
Here is the video:

This is certainly one of the best ways to make their voice heard as it is like a slap on the faces of those who are responsible for no action.
Soon online users also reacted on this matter and some targeted the government straight away for this mess:

Well, prompt action should be taken in this regard as it may result in accidents.
