Residents are perturbed by the unabated issues of sewer water flowing on main roads from manholes behind CGHS district centre in Laxmi Nagar.
Commuters as well as the residents are unhappy with the casual approach of authorities regarding overflow of sewer water in Laxmi Nagar.
Residents complain they are facing this problem for last two years and no permanent solution has been sought in this regard.
RC Garg, RWA general secretary told us that, "Sewer overflow is creating nuisance for the residents, still the authority is not ready to take any action to curb this menace. We are still waiting to get our sewer line cleaned."
The dirty water gets accumulated on the road and much can be seen lying everywhere. Nearby residents are also forced to inhale the foul smell.
"Overflowing sewage water has also become a breeding ground for the mosquitoes which increases the risk of vector-borne diseases" said HD Joshi, a senior citizen of the area.
The condition is worse near house number 151,198 and 202 where sewage water gets accumulated round the clock.
Ambika Dass, a resident shared with us, "Dirty water is flowing in our street especially outside our residence. Despite complaining, authority has turned a blind eye to our problems. It is quite tough to enter our own house."
Meanwhile, Gurucharan Singh Raju, councillor Preet Vihar said, "We are aware with this issue and also understand residents' problems. We have received complains and have sent a team to the concerned officials of the DJB."
When Cityplus contacted DJB chief engineer Subhash Arya, he said, "We accept that this issue exists but the problem is that most of the residents don't take direct sewer connection. I will direct the junior engineer to check the condition and do the needful."

"We are aware with this issue and also understand residents' problems. We have received complains and have sent a team to DJB.
Gurucharan Singh Raju, Councillor"
