The drains were also filled with garbage and chocked.
"Our lanes and drains are in shambles while the drains passing near their houses are filthy. Wild grass has grown up on the garbage dumped on roads as well as drains which obstructs free flow of houses' water. Hence the drainage system is making our lives miserable. Even, no safaikaramcharis were deputed," they said.
It has been more than month the cleaning of lane has not been done and they ourselves do it. The drains have not been covered while at some places the grills laid on them have been removed. They also blamed that lanes in worst condition which digging by ERA and other agencies for laying sewerage pipes. Residents are fuming as departments involved in project have shown a casual attitude by not renovating the roads.
