MANDI BAHAUDDIN: About 15-km Shaheedanwali-Lakhnewala link road is in a shambles and irking the road users of villages and the people linked to fruit and vegetables market.

Especially, the local farmers have to use the road for carriage of agricultural produce and inputs from villages to market and vice versa. Hundreds of brick kiln workers also use the road. Likewise, customers also use this road for carriage of bricks to their villages and towns.  Local people alleged that about one year ago, the Punjab govt had allocated funds to renovate the road but the local leaders of PML-N diverted these funds to other road construction projects. They demanded immediate reconstruction of the road.
