Saroornagar: While the politicos dared to face the locals, who vented their ire over the issues related to water, roads and drainage, they failed to pacify voters tormented by mosquito menace in Saroornagar. Fed up with the apathetic attitude of corporators, MLA and the GHMC officials, the residents shooed away politicians across the parties who approached them for votes.
Politicos on the edge as residents fume
Mallika, a resident says, “As a rule, we residents decided to first take an assurance from the contesting candidates that they would take up the issue on priority if they come to power.” Another resident Raju KK, secretary, Manikanta Apartments, says, “It is the stagnant lake water the main cause for the increase in mosquitoes. The garbage in the lake is not cleared on time resulting in the increase of mosquitoes. Evenings are so horrific. We are having many sleepless nights because of mosquitoes. We are scared to come out of the house.”
