Meerut: Activists of Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) on Tuesday staged a protest here to draw the attention of the centre towards the "bad" condition of roads in Uttar Pradesh.

The protesters, led by the party leader for western UP Rajkumar Sangwan, started their march from NH-58 here to Khola Jhaal and submitted a memorandum to the District Magistrate, demanding that the condition of roads be improved.

"Big potholes have developed between the NH-58 to Khola Jhaal road here in absence of any construction following which commuters have to face a lot of inconvenience," Sangwan said.

Sangwan claimed that a fund of Rs 19 crore had been alloted for widening the NH-58 to Khola Jhaal road but no money has been received from last eight months for the construction.

"We are now protesting by taking out a march to draw the attention of the centre towards the bad condition of the roads," Sangwan said.
