Patiala, November 23

Students associated with the Secular Youth Federation of India (SYFI) today filled potholes on the Punjabi University campus with sand as part of a demonstration. They said the state government had failed to get the campus roads reconstructed in the past five years.

The roads on the campus have been in a poor condition for years. They had demanded that the university authorities get these roads reconstructed or, at lest, get patchwork done, but to no avail.

Yadvinder Singh, a student, said, “The roads on the campus are in a poor condition. The state government, led by the Congress, has failed in getting them repaired in the past five years. Today, we carried out a drive to fill all potholes in view of the Chief Minister’s visit to the campus.”
