In a shocking act of neglect, a dog carcass was spotted by residents on Batla House road, according to commuters and passersby.
It is understood that the carcass has been lying there unattended for days.
Till Monday when this photo was taken nobody had cared to remove the body. This only reflects on the poor sanitation in the locality.
Interestingly the dog carcass has been spotted at a time when there is competition going on between aspirants and politicians to get their photos of sweeping the roads, planting trees snapped and then park them on social media to win hearts and minds of the residents as civic corporation election is months away.
For many residents this is not something new as they have no other option but to reside in a colony lagging behind in basic amenities.
The roads are broken; water logging is perennial thing, overflowing sewage and no water supply. A journey throughout the locality, a deprived borough in Delhi, only highlights the callousness of a few.
It is normal to find construction material dumped on roads despite the government pointing out that such items only exacerbate pollution in the locality.
But small-time builders are least bothered as in their greed to earn money they have ruined the locality by dumping construction materials on roadsides time and again.
And why only to blame these builders, the conditions in the locality are pitiable with roadside encroachment on the rise with mushrooming workshops, eateries and kiosks.
