GURGAON: Lack of a sewer network in Bajghera is a major cause of concern for residents of Gurgaon Gateway in Sector 113. Residents said that sewage generated from the village has been accumulating in a vacant plot located behind the society for the last three years and it has created a pool of dirty water. For the past few months, it has started spilling on the road in front of the society.
This, they say, has turned into a breeding ground for mosquitoes, posing a serious health threat apart from being an eyesore. Several complaints have been made to authorities, but no measures have been taken. RWA president Vibhu Goel said that there is absence of a proper drainage system in the area, resulting in free flow of untreated water from nearby villages into the sector.
“There is a stench emanating from the cesspool of dirty water due to which we are not able to keep the doors of our balconies ajar. The problem has only gotten worse as sewage has started spilling onto the road in front of our society and the school. Despite highrises coming up in this sector, the concerned authorities are not paying any attention to our civic amenities.”
In December 2020, the government had increased the ambit of MCG. Sixteen villages, including Bajghera, were taken over by the municipal corporation. According to locals, MCG has awarded the contract to an agency for laying sewer lines in the village around four months ago, but the work is yet to start.
“MCG has sanctioned Rs 9.26 crore for the work and an MLA inaugurated the work around two and a half months ago, But actual work is yet to start,” said Satbir Rana, RWA president of Bajghera. Meanwhile, MCG chief engineer Vishal Bansal said, “There were some reservations about the design and size of the pipelines. We are working on it and after approval of the revised design, work will begin.”
