Many commuters have complained many times on Twitter.

Gunjan Jha, a commuter from Sector 21, tweeted, “@nitin_gadkari @DelhiPwd the road from Dwarka metro 9 to Dwarka sector 21 metro is in such a dangerous condition. Accidents are waiting to happen. Some minister needs to travel on that road to understand what taxpayers go through. Such a shame.”

Heavy traffic of all kinds is there.”

Tejpal Kumar, a resident from Sector 21 said, “That is indeed true. The apathy is glaring. The Delhi Development Authority, Municipal Corporation of Delhi or the Horticulture Department have just turned a blind eye to this critical part of the infrastructure.”
