Hyderabad: Official apathy has once again led to locals of Hafeezbaba Nagar facing severe inconveniences as unfinished draining pipeline works have resulted in frequent sewerage overflowing in the area. The works were supposed to be completed months ago at the ‘A’ block in the area near the Saidq Zaheeruddin area of Hafezebaba Nagar remains incomplete . 

In fact, dug up roads in the area have also become a threat to pedestrians and motorists alike and residents of Hafeezbaba Nagar, who are facing hardships due to the civic issues, have said that any untoward incident can even prove to be fatal for children andthe  elderly who go to mosques for prayers.

“It has become difficult for us to step out of our homes as the entire stretch near Sadiq Zaheeruddin mosque in Baba Nagar area has been dug up several months ago to lay the new drainage the pipeline.  Whenever it rains, these roads become dangerous for the residents even to walk and also for the motorists, as they are not able to use this road,” said a resident Mohammed Shanawaz.

Three months ago, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) authorities and the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) had promised to lay a new drainage pipeline of 300 meters in the area but instead, they dug up roads and left those open. It resulted in drainage water continuously flowing from these open Nalas.

Residents, speaking to siasat.com criticized the officials and public representatives for their failure to monitor the pipeline works. The negligence, they said has also led to an increase in mosquito breeding, and causing skin allergies to children.

Another resident said, “If the works are not restarted immediately, the entire resident of Hafeezbaba Nagar will lodge a police complaint against the contractors of the municipal corporation who left things incomplete for several months. We will not be giving any vote if our complaints are not addressed,” he said, and added that ”no road no vote, no proper drainage system, no vote’ will be the slogan during the upcoming GHMC elections.
