Serilingampally: Desilting of drains taken up by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) ahead of monsoon shows the extent of plastic waste dumped in nalas.
Residents of Serilingampally alleged that the ignorance of an open nala by the GHMC officials which has become a reason for their miserable situation of the residents is clogged with plastic bags and garbage dump.

Dumping plastic remains a major reason for waterlogged streets and low-lying areas getting inundated. The nala reek foul smell and is a home for mosquitoes and rodents.
"We have a lot of mosquitoes due to the foul smell; we are worried that our kids' might fell sick. We requested the officials to put a safety fence so that no one tips and fell inside but it is still in vain," added the resident.
