Lack of sewerage system irking masses.

RAWALPINDI -- Lack of sewerage system has turned office colony into pond of stinking water.

Residents complained neither sewerage system has been built nor the streets have been bricked, therefore, every street has turned into breeding ground for mosquitoes.

"You can not stand for a minute in any street as the stench coming out of the heaps of garbage and filthy still water can not allow you do so, said Muhammad Aslam, a resident.

We can not go to the mosque due to filthy water standing in every street, said a group of residents.

We don't allow our children to move out of the home in the evening as many incidents of children falling into the ponds of filthy water have occurred, said a group of house wives.

We have been repeatedly sending applications to the concerned MPA and authorities to redress our complaint but no one is paying heed to our demand, said a group of shop keepers.

Residents demanded immediate construction of sewerage system otherwise they will be forced to hold protest demonstrations.
