Meanwhile Advocate Aditya Pratap stressed the need to combat corruption and for people to themselves take up Civic issues. He said that the best way to combat the pothole menace in Mumbai city is to make the BMC shell out massive pecuniary damages for any person who dies or suffers injury due to potholes. This can be accomplished through efficient civil litigation and awarding of heavy financial damages. However the deplorable state of Courts in India and massive pendency of cases stands as a huge obstacle towards achieving this.
