Officials keep passing the buck,” says Shaik Imtiaz Ali, a social activist, while speaking to The Hans India here on Friday. Advertise With Us While the silt and garbage continue to obstruct the free flow of nala, encroachments on its bed have only added to the problem. Over the years, the width of the nala has narrowed to a large extent. Heaps of garbage can be seen strewn all over it. “In the absence of a garbage bin, people keep throwing the waste in the nala. We do educate them against such practice, but we can’t stop them,” Imtiaz Ali lamented. It may be mentioned here that the GHMC Commissioner, Dana Kishore along with local MLA, MLC and Corporator made a visit to the nala. He said that the works were being sanctioned at the nala and along with desilting works and assured that the nala overflow would not happen this time. On Thursday, MLA, Syed Ahmed Pasha Quadri and MLC, Mirza Riyaz ul Hasan Effendi and others visited the spot to examine the works.last_img
