It takes me 45 minutes to travel 3 kilometers, boy writes to the PMO

It takes me 45 minutes to travel 3 kilometers, boy writes to the PMO Ever since Narendra Modi took over as the Indian Prime Minister, he has been flying high across the globe. Soon, the PM would be packing his bags for another overseas trip, this time to Britain. But even before Modi could fly for this maiden trip to the UK, an eight-year-old Indian boy has tried to draw his attention towards the difficulty that the little boy faces while commuting to his school on a daily basis.


Abhinav, a class III student, is not as fortunate as the PM to enjoy a comfort travel even to his school. He wrote a letter to the PMO trying to inform Narendra Modi about an under-construction flyover in northwest Bengaluru. In his letter, Abhinav says that it takes him 45 minutes every day to reach his school which is barely three kilometers from his home.

The National Public School, where the boy studies, is in Yashwantpur and he stays in Doddabommasandra, Vidyaranyapura with his family.

The letter written by this young citizen says that this under-construction flyover, which has been built over a railway crossing on the Outer Ring Road located near Goraguntepalya junction, causes traffic jams every day. The massive jam is not only affecting people’s health but my studies as well.
As a reaction to his letter, the PMO has asked Indian Railways to look into the matter.
