Residents of Piddi village have lodged a strong protest against overflowing sewer on the National Highway No. (NH) 54 which passes from the front of their village. They have also condemned burning of garbage of the District Administrative Complex (DAC) and district courts in fields which is spreading pollution in their village.

Fateh Singh Piddi, state leader of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee, Balwinder Singh, Tajinderpal Singh Rasulpur and other residents of the village said the pipes for draining sewer water of the DAC and the court complex in nearby Sheron village had developed cracks. They said due to perforation in pipes, sewer water overflowed on the NH-54. They said foul smell emanated from the sewer water. Residents said they had brought the issue of overflowing sewer into the notice of officials concerned many a times, but it was not resolved.

Residents said an open space for the parking of trucks had been converted into a garbage dump. Garbage from the DAC office and courts was dumped in the parking lot. They said safai karamcharis set garbage on fire which spread pollution in the village. Residents also alleged that there was no check on peddlers who were selling drugs in the village.

When contacted in this regard, Varinderpal Singh Bajwa, Additional Deputy Commissioner, said the issues were already in the notice of Sandeep Kumar, Deputy Commissioner (DC). Bajwa said the DC had discussed the issues with Simrandeep Singh, SDM, and these would be resolved soon.
