Illegal connection spoiled the situation
The preliminary investigation revealed that people had illegally taken connections in the pipeline here. In some places, similar connections were opened, in which even the tap was not installed. When pond water pooled near the settlements when it rained, the same dirty water went down the drain. From there it was supplied to EWS houses. People were put in possession of 183 EWS apartments and plots. But, only a few people have a valid water connection.
The colony is surrounded by a pond on 3 sides. A local resident, Sudha, said that about a month and a half ago the animal died in a pond. The wall of the rain pond collapsed and dirty water filled the settlement. The drinking water supply pipe ran through the same filth. There was a leak in it. This water came to people’s homes from the supply pipe. People also complained to the GDA and the Municipal Corporation about the dirty water coming in, but they didn’t pay attention. Manish said that after the death of 2 children, the officers lost sleep. Dirt has been strewn here for several days.
