The Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway created headlines after it was inaugurated by the Prime Minister of the country. However, in less than a week since then, the Expressway was inundated following heavy showers in the Ramanagara region of the state.

The waterlog resulted in a series of bumper-to-bumper accidents in the underbridge part of the highway. The accidents in slow-moving vehicles caused traffic jams for an extended period in the region. The expressway, which was built at ₹ 8,480 crores, was waterlogged near the Ramanagara district, neighbouring Bengaluru city.

“My Maruti Swift car was half submerged in the waterlogged underbridge. It switched off, and a lorry approaching from behind rammed into my car. Who will be held responsible for this? I am requesting this. I am requesting Chief Minister Bommai to get my car repaired. PM Modi inaugurated the highway, did he even check with his road and transport ministry whether the road was ready for the inauguration? Should we suffer for the sake of vote bank politics? They demand a whopping toll fee, what’s the use?” said one of the victims to NDTV.

Several other commuters questioned who should be held responsible for the series of accidents that took place at the expressway. They said that the authorities would have cleared the water logging in ten minutes if the Prime Minister was to arrive.
