Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s hereditary town in Rampura square of Bathinda — presents an image of absolute disregard nowadays.
Boulevards are immersed with sewer water and inhabitants need to swim through it to move all through their homes. Strikingly, the establishment stone for the sewerage was laid by Capt Amarinder himself in 2002. It worked fine for beginning hardly any years, yet began creating issues because of absence of legitimate upkeep. The circumstance gets horrendous during the stormy season.
Residents have more than once carried the issue to the notification of the specialists concerned, yet without any result.
A resident stated: “Nagar panchayat individuals attempted to set up things, yet not a lot could be accomplished. Numerous inhabitants accuse the current circumstance for the substitution of waste channels during the SAD-BJP system, yet there has been no improvement much after the Congress came back to control in 2017.”
Singh stated, “Swimming through knee-profound smelling water has become an every day difficulty. There might be an episode of waterborne illnesses in the town.” Even the Yadavindra Stadium, named after the CM’s dad, is immersed with water, Gurtej included.
Sewerage board SDO Gurcharan Singh stated, “The work for the establishment of another treatment plant is in progress. There are no different pipelines for the seepage of water. Additionally, we have not gotten any assets for the cleaning of pipelines.”
Delegate Commissioner B Srinivasan couldn’t be reached for remarks in spite of rehashed endeavors.
