GURGAON: Overflowing sewage has made life miserable for residents of Maruti Vihar, an area near Sushant Lok in the city.
Thanks to the choked sewerage lines, the sewage water has spread all over the colony.
The residents claimed that the colony has been abandoned by civic agencies and neither HUDA not MCG officials pay heed to their complaints.
"I live on the ground floor and no one in the family can sit in the living room because of the foul smell emanating from the sewage," said Parinda Mewar, a homemaker.
The unhygienic state of the colony was worsened by the accumulation of rainwater resulting in the sewage water covering the roads and the footpath. "Now the situation is such that even parking one's car is a big problem because one has to walk in muddy water to come home and it is disgusting," she said.
The residents blamed the internal politics of the society members for the bad condition of the colony. The colony was constructed by the society on land allotted by the state government. "The society has been dissolved and the administration has been handed over to the registrar of cooperative societies in Chandigarh. Now we don't know whom to approach and the condition is getting worse by the day," said Vinay, a resident of the colony.
Two years ago he had purchased the flat in the colony considering its location. The colony is located in the main city all the main places like the market, Sahara Mall and MG Metro station are at a walking distance.
