Water not drained out from judicial complex, SDM issues notice to dept


Water not drained out from judicial complex, SDM issues notice to dept

Abohar, August 6

The Punjab Water Supply and Sewerage Board has failed to drain out water from the sub-divisional administrative and judicial complex for the past 20 days. Sub-Divisional Magistrate Poonam Singh has issued notice to the Executive Engineer and Sub-Divisional Officer under Section 133 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973, for removal of nuisance caused by choking of sewerage system and submit compliance report by August 13.

The state government had shifted a divisional office and mechanical subdivision from Ludhiana to Abohar in October last year to give the Amrut Yojana a boost, besides handling maintenance work that had been transferred from the Municipal Council to the PWSSB.

Earlier, SDM Poonam Singh visited some of the colonies in which dirty water had inundated dozens of streets and even entered buildings. While interacting with residents in the affected colonies, she said the PWSSB officials had been misleading the district administration on arrangements to drain out water. It had come to her notice that no de-silting work was done by the board in the past two years.

The board launched laying new pipes under the Amrut Yojana but did not bother to get the old pipelines cleaned by arranging super-suction machines, people complained. At least in two dozen colonies, lavatories got blocked as and when rain hit the segment even for 15 minutes. — OC
