Lack of drains in Sullia a cause for concern

Lack of drainage facility and unscientific dumping of mud on the road side has created a public nuisance, making it difficult for pedestrians to walk by the road side at Car Street in Sullia.

The road that leads to Mandekolu from Sullia passes through the Car Street. Though the road belongs to zilla panchayat, it is maintained by Sullia town panchayat. As long as 100 metres of road in Car Street has been already concretised. But the public complain that the contractor who has been given the task of concretising the road has claimed the bill without making drainage facilities. Lack of drainage on both sides of the road has led to water clogging during monsoon.

As Rotary Primary School is located by the side of same road, school children are forced to walk on this slushy road which almost looks like a marshy field. This apart, even the students of KVG educational institutions, temple devotees, general public visiting taluk office too have to walk on the same road. If autorickshaw stand is on the one side of the road, private vehicles park on the other side. Due to lack of space on both sides of the road, pedestrians are forced to walk on the road.

Unscientific plan

Though the town panchayat developed concrete road spending crores of rupees, it is unfortunate that an unscientific plan has put the general public in trouble, leaving no space for pedestrians to walk. The newly constructed concrete road is often dug by the town panchayat workers for repairing the gate valve of the drinking water pipe fixed beneath the road.

With the delay in the government announcing reservation for the post of president and vice president of urban local bodies, the newly elected team of councillors are not able to take up the work in panchayat limits.
