The remaining two bus owners have already intimated the villagers on suspending the bus service.

Balmane-Kelasunka road was asphalted two years ago. However, owing to the poor quality of work, the surface of the road has been chipped off, causing inconvenience to the vehicle users.

Following the complaint by the villagers, the Zilla Panchayat Baindur engineering division had promised to repair the road. However, the road continued to remain in a pathetic condition.

With the intervention of the villagers, gravels were dumped on the road during monsoon, to facilitate the movement of buses.

When contacted, Gram Panchayat President Ashok Kumar Acharya said that 14 km road connecting Bolmane has been sanctioned under Pradan Manthri Grama Sadak Yojana.

Gram Panchayat former president Soorya Narayana Aithal said that the government should come forward to improve the basic facilities in Naxal infested areas.
