Residents of Gogji Bagh area here have expressed resentment over delay in completion of a drain there.
A delegation from the area said, the SMC started construction of a deep drain in the area last month. "The concerned contractor constructed about half the length of the drain and abruptly stopped the work of the drain. This unfinished work has rendered both the drain and lane defunct," they said.
They said the old surface drain was choked with the debris of the excavation. "The waste water of the surrounding houses flows on the road. The lane has also been rendered useless for any vehicular movement causing huge inconvenience to the population. It is even unsafe to walk through the lane from dusk to dawn," they said.
"Despite bringing the matter into the notice of SMC officials, no action has been taken despite passing of over a month. We appeal the Commissioner SMC to look into the matter and direct the concerned officials to complete the drain at the earliest," they said.
