Subà poor sanitary condition
Through your esteemed newspaper I want to draw attention of concerned authorities towards problem of encroachment of footpaths. I am president of RWA – kailashpur and fighting with this problem for last two years.
This is the general problem of all colonies in the city. But we are facing it a bit extra. There are two nalas (open sewers) in our colony- One on the eastern border and another passing through middle of the colony. Most of the time these are choked and over- flown. One can feel bad smell in the air all the time.
As if it is not enough, there is a MCD ‘garden’ in our colony which is turning into garbage dumping ground. Garbage from nearby colonies is also collected here. This garbage spreads on the roads by carrying vehicles. During rainy season this becomes a real hell. An epidemic can break anytime. This is the shear carelessness of the municipal corporation.Sweepers gather on road-crossings to gossip. It seems that they are not answerable to anyone. It is the wastage of manpower and government machinery.
We have written many letters to the concerned department but in vain. All our requests are falling on deaf ears. You are our last ray of hope. I expect that you will understand the gravity of the problem. Kindly provide some space in your newspaper.
President –RWA (kailashpur)
