Through the columns of your esteemed paper, I would like to throw a glance over the sewage problem of a city.

It is a matter of great sorrow and pity that gutters of the city areas keep overflowing throughout the locality. It is so disgusting to see sewage water on roads. The Municipal authorities are not paying any attention towards this trouble some problems.

This contaminated water gives rise to a number of diseases like malaria etc. And sewage water also sometime mixed with water supply lines and by drinking that water people become sick. Children also face a lot of problems to reach school. Plastic shopping bags are the biggest reason for the overflowing of gutters. And also a numbers of sweepers block the sewage lines in order to earn more money. We hope that the Municipal authorities will try to solve this most trouble some problems and believe the people from their sufferings.
