Kralteng drain choked
UMER MAQBOOL DAR
Sopur, Jan 3: Despite filing three complaints with the chief minister’s grievance cell about the choked drain at Kralteng here, the authorities are yet to take any action, causing immense hardships to the residents.
“The drain stinks and the problem compounds in rainy seasons due to inundation,” the residents said.
They said that they had filed a complaint (No.4476) with the cell on October 5. “We were surprised to know that the municipal committee had told the deputy commissioner of resolving the issue, who then informed the cell on November 9 about grievance disposal.
The complainant Muhammad Sultan again approached the cell on November 20 and filed complaint (No. 6621) saying the drain was still blocked the Committee hadn’t taken any action, they added. “This is height of indifference,” he wrote in the complaint.
Failing to get response, he filed another complaint (No.7309) on December 9, residents said adding the deputy commissioner on December 21 informed the grievance cell that “the executive Officer MC Sopur has been directed to visit the spot and furnish factual report.” “The Committee in its response to the Cell has blamed the R&B department for failing to respond to the permission sought for removal of the black top of the drain,” the residents said adding that despite complaints, the problem still persists.
