Senior citizens of the area informed that heavy vehicles are plunging into poorly filled sewer line regularly. The turning on the main road has become risky. Despite such danger, the JMC is taking no step to restore the sewer line for the last two months

In order to protest against utter negligence of Jabalpur Municipal Corporation (JMC) in getting restore and reconstruct the main road which was dug out to lay sewer line, senior citizens, both men and women of Sneh Nagar staged dharna under the aegis of Vikas Samiti Sneh Nagar at the main road, on Monday.


Tying handkerchief on nose, the residents of the colony sat on the protest for an hour. They demanded the JMC to restore and construct the road within a week time or else the colony people would stage massive demonstration at Jabalpur Municipal Corporation headquarters.


Senior citizens of the area informed that heavy vehicles are plunging into poorly filled sewer line regularly. The turning on the main road has become risky. Despite such danger, the JMC is taking no step to restore the sewer line for the last two months.


In recent days a Hywa laden with sand, School Bus, fright carrier Truck, giant garbage carrying vehicle, a Truck and Hearse, vehicle used to carry dead body got stuck into the sewer line.


Residents said they have submitted several memorandums right from Mayor to Municipal Commissioner, CEO of Smart City, Deputy Commissioner and even submitted complaints to senior officials during the Jansunwai but no one is listening to their voice and taking no pains to get restore the sewer line properly and construct road.


Their laxity is proving dear to entire colony people as heavy traffic of the main road is diverted to the colony. Heavy trucks, busses, dumpers, cars and bikes are passing through narrow lane of the colony round the clock and making it difficult for colony residents to come out of their houses. Likewise, puff of dust billowing of the road following heavy traffic is causing breathlessness to the residents.


People have been suffering from respiratory ailments due to continuous billowing of dust. The negligence of the JMC and company which is carrying out the work is proving costly to Sneh Nagar residents. They have demanded the JMC to construct the road within a week or else residents would stage protest at JMC headquarters.
