Overflowing gutters

February 11, 2019


THE residents of lane No 4 off main Peshawar Road, Rawalpindi Cantonment, have been living in most miserable conditions owing to choking and overflowing sewerage.

Last November, the concrete road was dug up to lay pipelines alongside sewerage. The debris of the shattered road caused the choking and overflowing of sewerage. This added to the misery of the pedestrians, schoolchildren, and elderly.

The Rawalpindi Cantonment Board (RCB) is least concerned and has not filled up the dug-up road as yet. If this is the state of affairs of most posh localities within the precincts of GHQ, air defence and aviation command that too under the RCB, then what will be the condition in other parts of the garrison?

Will someone in relevant quarters take stock of residents’ plight?
