Jalandhar:”A team of Jalandhar Municipal Corporation (MC), which came to fill mud in big potholes on the broken roads had to face huge embarrassment after the truck ended up getting stuck in the same pothole on Thursday afternoon.
The vehicle carrying mud was tilted towards one side after one of its tyre got stuck in the pothole. The saving grace was that no untoward incident took place, as the vehicle was virtually left stuck in the broken stretch.
MC employees had come to fill mud in a pothole on the local Master Tara Singh road near Hotel Kamal Palace when the incident took place.
Seeing it as a huge embarrassment, the MC team immediately called a JCB machine, which helped in getting the truck out of the pothole. Notably, daily commuters had been facing a lot of problems due to broken roads, the reconstruction work of which was running behind schedule. Soon after the incident, commuters maintained that finally the MC authorities also got a taste of its own lackadaisical attitude in addressing the public problems.
“This incident should serve as an eye- opener for the MC authorities, as every day we end up travelling on bumpy roads in the city”, said an elderly couple.
