One thought on “‘Atal Bridge’”
The security guard at the gate was too harsh.Not mentally stable. 8:15 pm not able to enter and if asking he was showing stick to ladies and making them feel uncomfortable.
It’s my suggestion to keep a calm mind security who deals respectfully. Hope the government offical would look after it and improve the management.
