ALLAHABAD: More than 5,000 families living in Sulemsarai, Preetam Nagar, Transport Nagar, Mundera, Bamrauli, Mahilagram, Nehru Park, Jayantipur, Saket Nagar, Kalindipuram, Harwara, Chakmeera Patti, Ganga Vihar colony, Mahendra Nagar, Neem Sarai, Mundera village and adjoining areas are leading a miserable life in absence of proper civic amenities for last one decade.
Absence of proper drainage system has forced the area people to come out on streets but, as usual they were given false assurances.
Unfortunately, grievances of residents is yet to seek attention of authorities concerned as they kept on submitting applications before district and AMC officials to lay down proper drainage system.
"There are always false assurances by authorities concerned and the locals are living miserable lives" rued Dhananjay Singh, president of Mundera Vyapaar Mandal.
He further added "If you go through GT road (Allahabad-Kanpur road) through Mundera street, absence of drains from both sides of roads candidly narrate the unsightly situation and there is none to hear our grievances".
He added "construction of proper drainage system is the only solution to the problem as the residents have been demanding same for last several years".
 "Every time, the authorities concerned construct road or do patch work but as there was no proper drainage system, the condition of roads get affected and commuters are forced to walk or drive on bad shape roads".
As the level of road increasing, the water especially during rainy season enters into the house of low lying area and residents were bound to sit idle.
Singh, meanwhile, pointed out "if proper drainage system gets constructed, the existing problems could solved automatically".
Areas which have drains, they were filled with filth as no proper cleanness drive was taken and residents were forced to live a miserable life.
Ironically, over 5,000 families were worst affected in the entire area comprising over two dozen localities as they want proper drainage system to be constructed. Despite the fact that sewerage line is being laid in the area but this could not be effective till there was no construction of drains, residents alleged.
Pointedly, colonies like Ganga Vihar colony, Abubakarpur and Mahendra Nagar face problem of water logging every year due to absence of drainage system. Once the entire are was water-logged, neither school children go school nor locals could carry out their routine work.
Similarly, from Dhoomanganj petrol pump to Dharamveer Marg , water used to accumulate on footpaths in absence of drains. Locals have earlier demanded to construct gully but no heed was paid till date. Few days back, the area residents had submitted an application with Dhoomanganj police station demanding FIRs against erring officials concerned but no action was taken till date.
Meanwhile, Singh pointed out "We have apprised the prevailing scenario to senior administrative officials , police officials and AMC authorities and were given false assurances". Spokesperson of AMC, SL Yadav told TOI "We have been taking out development work in the area under JNNURM programme". He, however, admitted that the sewer lines in the interior areas have not been laid and we are planning to construct proper drainage system in the area.
