keralites, at least the politicians here who always take every thing with a bit of doubt has already branded the act of actor Jayasuriya, who with a group of friends, filled the big potholes in some of the roads in Kochi with stones. He, in fact has arranged for the tarring metal in his expense and filled the big holes at late night. The politicians here are but not ready to take it as an act of social protest or humanitarian deed. The state minister Ibrahimkunju and Kochi Mayor Toni Chammini has already branded Jayasuriya's action as a publicity stunt. The Mayor founds it unscientific to fill the potholes in such a manner . Anyhow the social media and TV channels have started debates on who is right in this issue. The youth in the state are already parading after Jayasuriya and his views.
Jayasuriya says he just went for the act depressed with the death of two of his friends who got into an accident in these pathetic roads recently. He is also enquiring where they need to complaint in such situations. They have actually resorted to silent measures, late at night and not even went for slogans or rallies stopping the traffic or creating difficulties for the public. The film fraternity has slowly started to support Jayasuriya. The director B Unnikrishnan has already called it a symbolic protest and that the mayor and the bunch of politicians has just depicted themselves to be unimaginative and insensitive to the problems of ordinary man.
