Viral video: Maharashtra villagers lift Up newly built road with hands

In an attempt to highlight poor quality of roads, people from a village in Jalna district of Maharashtra lifted up a stretch of road like a carpet with their bare hands. The 38-second viral clip shows a carpet-like material placed directly under the road, which according to the villagers was constructed by a local contractor identified as Rana Thakur. In the video, the villagers express their discontent with the poor quality of work, referring to it as “bogus”, as they hold the carpet beneath the asphalt.

According to reports, the incident took place in Karjat-Hast Pokhari, part of Ambad taluka in Maharashtra’s Jalna district. The road was constructed under Prime Minister Gram Sadak Yojana (PM Rural Road Scheme).

The contractor claimed to employ German technology for the construction of the road. However, the residents soon discovered that this claim was deceptive, as they had merely implemented a makeshift solution.

In traditional road construction, a blend of gravel, sand, and compacted soil is employed to ensure long-lasting durability. In recent years, engineers have started using concrete to increase the durability of the road. But, in this instance, the mixture was carelessly applied directly onto a carpet-like material, indicating a hurried approach to finish the project.

The video received a wide range of remarks in the comment section from the users. Some people said that the contractors must be extra cautious as their work is being closely monitored by a large number of people.
