BBMP makes a mountain out of a pothole

Kammanahalli Main Road had a pothole that BBMP workers converted to a mountain. Now who will set this right?

This hole on Kammanhalli Main Road poses a threat to those who use this busy road. Nearby shopkeepers placed some stones, bricks and branches near the whole to help prevent any mishap.

The next day some workers from the BBMP workers came and filled it up with heaps of mud and rocks, and it became a mountain on the road (as shown in the photo). This is how it has been for the past few days.

Who can we contact for road repairs like this?

    ITS A MOST DIRTY JOB DONE BY BBMP. IT APPEARS BBMP HAS ONLY UNSKILLED ENGINEERS WHO DONT APPLY THEIR MIND(IF THEY HAVE ONE).SEE MANHOLES DONE. ALL THE MANHOLES ARE SIX INCHES ABOVE THE ROAD OR THE NORMAL. ITS AN OPEN INVITATION FOR ACCIDENTS. FURTHER LOOK AT THE RAIN WATER DRINAGE SYSTEM DONE . ALL OF THEM LOOK LIKE ROAD HUMPS /BUMPS OR MOUNTAINS. WHY CANT THEY SMALL THINGS WITH PRECISION. WHAT IS LACKING.
