The major issue disturbing the residents of Moghalpura (ward-33) is lack of any developmental works in localities, as several areas are craving for basic facilities of government. The division has a history of civic issues like bad roads, contaminated water supply, severe sewage overflow, lack of UPHCs, parks, community halls, and, most importantly, the entire division has poor sanitation. The division has government schools but not is condition, no one is bothered about the educational institutions. "The Moghalpura is one of the oldest divisions, which has Government Bela Hospital in Hari Bowli, 2 Ayurvedic Hospitals located in Sultan Shahi and Moghalpura but these facilities are running without proper amenities," said K Venkatesh, a social activist.
