Malkajgiri: Residents of this biggest constituency in Telangana are facing a problem of stink raised by overflowing sewage on roads and because of incomplete drain works worth crores. This has left them wonder whether they are living in a part of fastest growing city or in a dirty nala. Understandably, the road-users are the most harried lot as sewage is overflowing in Bramarambikanagar.

Expressing serious concern over the state affairs, vehicle-users, walkers and students while speaking to The Hans India said they were facing extreme hardship because of the emanating foul smell, as they have to frequently cross the Neredmet-Madhuranagar main road to reach R K Puram, Anthayya Colony, Santosh Colony. Local residents Chindam Srinivas and Swapna pointed out that repeated complaints to officials have not brought any response from the administration.

The works are lying incomplete after the pipelines have been laid at some spots, like Vimaladevinagar, along with manholes, but sand of the dug pits has been left at the spots. Local people wonder how long they have to put up with this inconvenience, as the problem has given rise to mosquito menace and spread of several contagious diseases. Although in some cases officials do inspect the spots but fail to take any corrective action, alleged the residents.

They are waiting for the day when their area would be free of foul odor notwithstanding the claims of Hyderabad being no 1 ‘Vishwanagaram’. They said that it is only for namesake as the GHMC has proved to be a zero in taking up prompt sanitation work, going by the negligent attitude of its officials and staff.

Srinivas and Swapna are particularly concerned as the areas are likely to be waterlogged during the ensuing monsoon with rain water filling up nalas. They want the GHMC and HMWSSB to take advance preventive measures keeping in view the fast approaching rainy season.
