Even the kilometre indicator post erected on the road side was uprooted and used to make a cross path for the vehicles to pass through over the deep dug up trench, it stated.

It stated that instead of resorting to such wild and senseless acts which has caused great inconveniences to commuters. Those individuals who dug up the deep trench should have second thoughts and approach the authority concerned to arrange for better, feasible alternative ways for the irrigation canal, it stated.  

The senseless act of those individuals simply showed total disrespect to other citizen’s rights to live as dignified citizens and their actions are condemnable, it added.
