“A recent death of the biker, who slipped into one of the potholes during one of her rides, shows potholes are also dangerous to life and this issue which has always been hastily addressed before monsoons, needs deeper intervention,” said Shally K in her petition.

The petition which began on Friday, had already received over 1,500 signatures by afternoon.

The petition is urging, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, ruling party Shiv Sena, along with CM Devendra Fadnavis, to create and implement a long-term plan to make Mumbai pothole-free.
