Qutbullapur: People fear to stepping into this town, including Gajularamaram Crossroads, as they apprehending falling into ditches left during the incomplete Mission Bhagiratha (MB) works by contractors, who are taking their own time to complete the work.
They are digging fresh pits before completing the tasks on hand, thus causing severe hardship to both local residents and visitors. When questioned, the contractors boldly state that the works are part of the drinking water pipelines being provided by the State administration.
Residents of Gajularamaram told The Hans India that MB contractors had dug up a road for laying a pipeline at Gajularamaram Crossroads and left it. None seem to be bothered about the hardship caused to local residents for a month. This has resulted in serious traffic problems, causing inconvenience to both road and vehicle-users. The road-users have appealed to officials to solve such problems at the earliest.
The contractors appear to be having a field day in the Qutbullapur area. They are yet to complete the work in the areas submerged during the last year’s monsoon and are boldly resisting the efforts of officials to get the work expedited. The officials told THI that when the contractors were questioned they are allegedly making people’s representatives to issue telephonic warnings. They express helplessness unable to do anything to check the whims and fancies of contractors.
A local general store trader, Arjun, informed THI that customers were not coming to his shop because of the dust rising from ditches. A manager of Andhra bank said his customers were facing severe inconvenience and traffic problem by the ditch before the premises.
A pushcart fruit vendor, Anjaneyulu, said he was facing serious traffic problems, caused by broken manhole in the centre of the road. He said accidents involved two-wheelers and autos were occurring near the spot. These persons want officials to take expeditious action to provide solution to the problems of road-users.
