Residents of a colony in Kukatpally are up in arms in opposition to the authorities to avoid wasting their roads and a lake within the neighborhood.
Vexed with lack of response regardless of complaints, the residents of Deeptisri Nagar have determined to conduct a public protest looking for decision of the problems. They’ve tied up banners throughout the colony, venting out their frustration.
Two weeks in the past, the colony was in information when fish died in giant numbers within the Regulakunta lake following heavy rains. The lake abuts the colony, and has develop into repository of sewage and air pollution from a dumping floor close by, resulting in the demise of fish.
“Until not too long ago, the lake had pristine water, which allowed fish to thrive. Authorities gave permission to about 60 fishermen to fish from the lake and eke out a livelihood. However the current incident has left doubts in our minds about availability of catch anymore within the lake,” stated B. Prakash Varma, a resident of the colony.
Positioned a couple of kilometre away from the colony is a rubbish switch station of GHMC, adjoining to the Dharmapuri temple, from the place air pollution and stench emanate all through the day, residents complain.
“They arrange the dump yard about 10 years in the past, promising that no hint of stench or air pollution would emerge from there. Now, you can not keep within the neighborhood even for a minute. Added to it’s the parade of rubbish vehicles day in and time out,” complained Y. Seetaramaiah, president of the Deeptisri Nagar Colony Residents’ Welfare Affiliation.
Rubbish from so far as Kukatpally and JNTU is introduced right here, and vehicles carrying trash could possibly be seen in ready for half a kilometre from the yard, he says.
“Generally, unwilling to attend, the operators dump the rubbish on the roadside and depart, turning the entire stretch right into a veritable dump yard. Unable to bear the sight, we had taken an initiative to clear the rubbish earlier,” Mr. Seetaramaiah stated.
Throughout current rains, leachate from the dump had flown right down to the lake, turning the water darkish, and killing the fish in droves, he stated. Including to the air pollution is the sewage stream from localities of Ameenpur, owing to giant variety of constructions cropping up within the space throughout the previous few years, whose drainage strains are linked to the lake’s inlet drain.
“After we complained to the GHMC, they stated the lake is maintained by HMDA, and the latter in flip blamed the Irrigation division,” Mr. Seetaramaiah stated.
In search of decision to all these points, residents of Deeptisri Nagar and Shanti Nagar colonies have determined to conduct an indication on Sunday close to the lake.
