Ludhiana, July 9

As the MC has failed to resolve the problem of waterlogging during the rains on Ludhiana-Chandigarh Road for a long time, a local resident has sent a complaint to Chief Minister Amarinder Singh.

Premjeet Singh of Urban Estate, Sector 39, Chandigarh Road, said: “I have been living here for the past 30 years. I purchased the plot here thinking it was a posh area. Whenever it rains, the sewerage starts overflowing near Police Colony and Grewal Petrol Pump, and water gets accumulated on the highway and the nearby parks. Sewer water flows into houses.”

Major waterlogging was witnessed on the road on Wednesday and Thursday. The local residents and commuters were a harried lot due to waterlogged highway.

“Years have passed but no action has been taken to resolve the problem of waterlogging during the rains. In this connection, I have met the Municipal Corporation officials and the local councillor also, but to no avail,” he complained.

The complainant has appealed to the CM to direct the MC authorities to resolve the problem at the earliest as the residents are paying property tax as well.

Superintending Engineer of MC Rajinder Singh said they had written to the National Highways Authority of India for installing proper storm-sewer system on Chandigarh Road.
