Peerzadiguda: Five residents of Peerzadiguda-Prashanth Mamidala, Venkatachary, Sujatha, Naveen and Zakir, software professionals and entrepreneurs – decided to plant dry branches in potholes on the Peerzadiguda to Boduppal stretch to catch the attention of municipality officials. Prashanth said, "We came up with this idea as it would catch eye-balls. We have been complaining for months now but there is no response from the officials."

"A complaint was lodged on September 20 and the then Commissioner Vani assured that the potholes would be fixed. Now there is another Commissioner Srinivas who just gives assurances but there is no action on ground," said Zakir.

Prashanth says a few potholes could be fixed by themselves but the number is huge and a few potholes are large in size. On the stretch there are three schools – Siddhartha Public School, Sri Diji School and Chaitanya School with a cumulative strength of over 2,500 students. In the last few months there have been several accidents, including fatal ones resulting in the death of a college student.
