We are not able to go out of our homes for the last three months as the sewer line is overflowing here, writes Shayan Ahmad Khan.
Due to which the diseases and infections are spreading in the environment. And also sewer water is flowing in some houses. Daily cars, bikes and rickshaws fell into the pothole. There is a lot of risk to go from here. Despite making several attempts to get things improved very little h as happened in the last three months.
OT.COM reported earlier that the issue has been at the centre of attraction for the last many months. Residents still remember that how during councillor time photos of waterlogged streets in Jamia Nagar had gone literally viral on the social media. Moreover, during that time, residents were found sharing such photos on the social media from the time to time. But, according to some residents, since the results have been out, it has been found that now some activists and netizens have stopped sharing such photos for reasons best known to them.
Waterlogged streets, bad roads with innumerable potholes, garbage dumping in the open and encroachment on roadside with residents illegally parking their vehicles on roads mushrooming workshops are some of the issues that residents have been battling for years with little result.
And with reports of season of mosquito breeding coming there are fears that dengue and other diseases will spread in the locality that last year saw several people dying of it, said residents.
