Irked by failure of authorities to restore a defunct drain in the locality, inhabitants of SD Colony of Batamaloo pooled money and undertook necessary repairs.
"The drainage system in our locality had been rendered defunct. We have many times apprised the SMC officials about the matter, however they did not take any measure to restore the drain," said a group of locals led by Mohsin Mushtaq.
"After getting cold response from the officials, we decided to pool money and ourselves restore the drainage system.
"We completed the restoration process in just four days. We urge the SMC authorities to undertake cleaning of the main drain of the locality," they added.
