Default Benefits of VIP (CM) visit.

17th april, Her majesty Vasundra Raje decided to visit Abu on a two day tour, on closing day of Polo Match that is held here annually.

People had lot of problems regarding road use and oneway etc. but that was not the point. But look at the brighter side, each and every poth holes, illegal bumps, non-working street lights was replaced or repaired the day before, for which people were submitting complaints for more than half a year.

man! you would have been awstruck to watch our alsi muncipal/pwd worker turned into german workhorses.

This is the condition of a A grade city of rajasthan, Imagine the condition in Jalore or barmer or any other place for that matter.

I can only say 'Padharo Maere Desh' (Welcome to my country, in Rajasthani)

Padharo Mhare Des.

You have an inactive municipality. You should take a trip down to Udaipur. The roads are world-class, the streets are well-lit all night long, and even the smallest and oldest lanes have no garbage on them.

Many years. My family comes from there. I speak with experience, not through my hat.

Same thing happened in my locality here in chennai. When the CM was to visit some flood affected area, all the speedbreakers were evened & potholes patched up. Come every month, I'd say.

I do love Udaipur. and most of Rajasthani roads, for that matter. dad - who is a consultant in the construction of national highways - says that Rajasthani roads degenerate slower than roads in many other states, thanks to the hard rocky bed they are laid on. soft soil causes roads to flex and break.
only thing about Udaipur that ticks me off is that the people who obstruct traffic are in no hurry to give way. people coming the wrong way, driving in sync on bikes cross-talking and stuff.
all said, its Paradise compared to Hyderabad.
