SHEIKHUPURA-A large number of residents of Ghang Road have been facing a miserable situation for the last several days owing to the blockage of sewerage and drainage system.

The residents of Street 3, 4 and 5 held demonstration and chanted slogans against the negligence and apathy of tehsil municipal authority on Tuesday. The protesters including Sarwar Gujjar, Mian Liaqat, Qaisar Virk, Afzal Sheikh, Safdar Ch, Rana Riaz Advocate and others while talking to the media person said the project had completed just three years ago at a cost of Rs100 million. The protesters said that substandard material was used in its construction while 9-inch pipes were laid instead of 13 inch which is the main reason of its blockage.

The contractor concerned with the connivance of TMA staff had embezzled handsome amount after being committed discrepancies and wrong going in the project. TMA engineer Mian Saqib following the complaints of residents visited the site and said that an action would be taken against the contractor.
