Bombay High Court no Thursday said that a high level of tolerance displayed by Mumbai residents has allowed the local body to be apathetic towards poor condition of roads.
Expressing displeasure over Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation ignoring court’s orders on the issue of potholes, the division bench of Chief Justice N H Patil and Justice N M Jamdar said, the concerned authorities seem to have a very insensitive approach towards the issue.
The court said, the civic body is duty-bound to provide good roads to its citizens but even the citizens have become too tolerant and ignorant towards these problems.
The court was hearing a bunch of petitions about increasing number of accidents and deaths of motorists due to pothole-ridden roads in the city. The matter has been posted for further hearing next week.
