KARUR:Country roads take me home... This famous John Denver line from 1971 will certainly not be relevant to the pothole filled pathway that links Sinna Sengal hamlet to Udayakulathupatti in Karur district. In a real-life instance that perhaps recalls a popular Vadivelu comedy track in which the actor complains about a missing well, posters offering `10,000 for finding a ‘missing’ tar road connecting Sinna Sengal to Udayakulathupatti through Poovambadi have been put up by irate villagers.

The villagers of Poovambadi, Azhagapuri and Udayakulathupatti have offered the ‘bumper prize’ alleging that the condition of the road was appalling and road-users and vehicles are being put to great hardship because of it.

The novel posters have been put up in the villages as well as near the Karur Collectorate.

The posters seek help in ‘finding’ the road from Sinna Sengal to Poovambadi under the Sengal village panchayat and Poovambadi to Udayakulathupatti under the Old Jayamkondan town panchayat.

A local body official said the stretch, which is about 5 km long, was last laid about 20 years ago, and was relaid 15 years back. Despite a series of petitions and protests by residents pressing for relaying of the road for the past 10 years,  the district administration has not paid heed to their demands, the villagers charged.
