Open manholes on city roads pose serious threats


Residents have expressed concern over the open manholes in Cantonment and city areas, saying that slackness on the part of concerned authorities towards the matter could lead to loss of precious lives.
Over a dozen manholes of different organisations were lying open in these areas.
The residents said that concerned authorities were playing the role of silent spectators over the matter despite repeated complaints.
The citizens demanded of the RCB chief executive officer to pay due attention to the matter and close the open manholes.
On the other hand, Cantonment Board officials said that it was the responsibility of concerned authorities, without naming them, to cap the open manholes on Mall Road.
