The youths in Kulaura upazila are repairing the 1.5-km-long and five-foot-wide Abutalipur-Mitupur-Rampasha road in their area themselves.
They began the repair work after their repeated requests to the officials concerned went in vain.
“We were promised by the local government a few months ago that the road would be repaired, but we decided to repair it on our own due to the inordinate delay,” said Asuk Mia.
“We were hopeful after the local lawmaker and union parishad chairman visited the area, but they did not keep their promises,” said journalist MA Ahad.
Kulaura Upazila Nirbahi Officer Chowdhury Md Golam Rabbi said it was a good initiative by the youths and praised them for their contribution.
