NH-72 wears a pitiful look

Himachal roads come wrapped with a sad state, which causes a lot inconvenience. Over the years the condition has worsened but the government seems to turn a blind eye towards all such woes. Shimla-Rohru road is one example that makes, people taking that route, burn with fury. Sharing one such odd experience is a reader of ‘The News Himachal,’ who has faced trouble on the NH-72 that passes through Paonta Sahib, Narayan Garh, Kala Amb and Yamuna Nagar (Haryana). Paonta Sahib is visited by thousands of Sikh devotes every year from all across the country. A 125km drive from Chandigarh to Paonta Sahib can take a good 4 hours. This means wasting precious time and also extra vehicle maintenance cost. The potholes on the ground, at places, measure a good 2 feet causing nothing but havoc. The apathy doesn’t end here! The connecting roads of NH-72 are in an even worse state, causing unending troubles for daily commuters. Roads running through Badripur, Jamniwala, Rampur Brotiwala and Nihal Garh need to be restored soon to avoid losses. The highway is also taken by devotees who wish to visit Hemkund Sahib, Badrinath and Char Dham Yatra, Haridwar.
