Every day, eight-year-old Abhinav would wait at the railway crossing near Goraguntepalya junction on Bengaluru's outer Ring Road, on his way to school. With dozens of other commuters, the class III student would be stuck in the traffic snarls caused by an under-construction flyover project that is already delayed. Unlike others around him, he took the initiative to take matters in his own hand, and drafted a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, reported TOI.
Abhinav's letter says that the traffic mess is affecting "not just people's health, but also my studies." According to the report in The Times of India, Abhinav stays in Doddabommasandra, Vidyaranyapura and has to travel 45 minutes everyday to cover a distance of 3 kilometres to reach National Public School in Yeshwanthpur.
The Prime Minister's Office has responded to the letter and asked the railways to look into the matter, reported TOI.
