School children put lives at risk and cross a broken bridge in Gujarat
Locals of two villages in Gujarat’s Kheda district — Bherai and Naika — have been putting their lives at risk for the past two months and have resorted to precariously crossing a canal for their daily commute. A nine-foot-high bridge connecting the two villages, and the only way for locals to commute, has been broken for the past two months. The locals have been petitioning for a bridge connecting the villages to be rebuilt, as they use the route for daily commute. ANI reported that Kheda district collector IK Patel has said that “construction work will be resumed immediately”. Reports, however, said that the repair work has been delayed due to heavy rains.
