Weekend showers grim reminder of civic problems in Okhla.
Okhla continues to be in bad shape this despite several assurances of things being improved. A walk in Jamia Nagar reflects badly on local governance with roads in bad shape, water logging for days, garbage strewn on roadsides and encroachment of footpaths.
Moreover, for years the civic problems of the locality has not been addressed.
The mild to sporadic heavy showers ovwr the weekend exposed agencies tall claims of development with work related to
addressing civic problems in Okhla like water-logging, cleaning of drains and sewage etc.
The rain resulted in huge pits and potholes in the locality. While in some roads if waterlogging is an issue in others, roads have caved-in or broken and sewage piled up which is expected to create health hazard.
Shockingly even in Ramzan when residents expect their area to be cleaned Jamia Nagar is in a big mess.
But are we worried? Will Okhla imrove?
