Bhopal: Fed up with the deplorable state of a 200-metre-long road in their area, residents of Madhya Pradesh’s Arvind Nagar held a “laughter protest”, hoping that it would draw the attention of the authorities.

The protest, which was held on Sunday, saw locals lined up with banners highlighting their plight. They raised their hands and roared in laughter.

“We are staging a ‘laughter protest’. We are laughing because the government is unable to repair the road,” a local told ANI.

He added, “A road has not been constructed in last two years although Rs 3 crore was sanctioned. Some work was done when we protested but it was stopped later.”
