Scores of locals flanked by members of the business community protested against the deteriorated condition of one of the important and commercially-recognized Ghang Road in front of press club here the other day. The protesters led by some social workers informed the journalists that the dust arose from the shamble road following the vehicular movement causing various diseases among the dwellers and shopkeepers.

The grave condition of the road has been brought into the knowledge of the DCO and the TMO several times but to no avail, they lamented.

They demanded the authority concerned to get it repaired as soon as possible before the commencing of rainy season.
