District: (Open main holes posing serious life threats to everyone)January 13, 2015
SIALKOT: The open main holes are posing serious life threats to everyone in Sialkot city, however city managers are not paying heed to this sorry state of affairs, which is a life risk for every one.
Almost all the manholes on main city roads including Paris Road, Jail Road, Press Club Road, Model Town, Pakka Garha, Gohadpur Road, Adalatgarha-Uggoki, Kutchery Road, Hajipura Road, Circular Road, Khadim Ali Road, Capital Road, Abbott Road, Pasrur Road, Stadium Road and other inter- city roads are lying opened since long due to which dozens of people including women and children have got their arms and legs fractured by falling in these uncapped manholes.
This critical situation was enough to reveal the height of negligence of Sialkot TMA’s concerned officials, who have allegedly never bothered to visit to address the public grievances, in this regard.
Chairman Citizens Rights Forum Sialkot Dr Mohammad Muneer Butt told the newsmen here on Wednesday that instead of solving these problems, the concerned officials of Sialkot TMA have allegedly turned their eyes blind, putting the people at the mercy of these nasty circumstances, besides, adding miseries of the already agonized people.
He said putting aside the repeated public appeals, the Sialkot TMA still remains unable to cap these main holes due to some unknown reasons or they have been waiting for any untoward incident in this regard.
He said the perturbed people have announced to go on hunger strike as a protest against the Sialkot TMA if these, what they said, shame problems were not resolved within a week.
He said people were often found cursing the TMA, which has miserably failed to provide them the basic facilities. When contacted, the concerned officials of Sialkot TMA’s sanitation department averted to give any comment, in this regard.
