Thanks for saving one more
One user appreciated the police's act, but also called out the BMC wishing if the nullah could have been closed by the authorities.
Appreciate the Help- however, this help wouldn’t be needed if @mybmc had kept less “pot holes/Man holes” or open “Nallah” in the 1st Place. No one would need such help.— Maad Shai (@MaadSai) January 17, 2020
Just Saying! Think about it ðªð¼
