  "People from five adjoining districts are being affected by this bridge and it is becoming difficult to travel, but the biggest area of concern is development. There are 11 divisions in these five districts and they are facing a rise in crime because there's no bridge. With a new bridge the crime in the area would come to an end."
   
    Villagers in the northern Indian town of Gorakhpur town in Uttar Pradesh shed items of clothing as they stood in the river Sarayu on Thursday (April 18) and cloaked themselves instead in slogans demanding the construction of a new bridge over the river to replace a current make-shift one in pitiable condition.

  Men stripped off their shirts and stood up to their necks in the river's banks, shouting slogans demanding the construction of a new bridge.

  The current floating bridge cannot take the weight of large vehicles such as buses and other public transport, making life difficult for locals living in nearby villages.

  Locals have previously voiced demands for a bridge to the provinicial government, but claim they were forced to take their demands to new levels of protest as a result of the apparent apathy of local officials.
