In winter days light rain turned the roads into muddy and full of water which made difficulties for commuters, students and especially patients in whole day to travel said a local Gh Mohammad Ganie.
The wasted water used to drained straight into the drains but now with the rise in population the drainage cannals gets jammed with the sewage usually in harsh winter days , By the over amount of liquids and the sewage which leads the blockage of drainage system ends with the flow on the local streets .
The drainages not have been cleaned since years as we villagers everyday manage ourselves to hold waste things and clean it by own said a resident Gh Hassan pujjoo.

Through this the villagers movement went off whole day and on Namaz timings we hardly manage to cross the watery road to offer namaz in our Masjid said Haji Mohammad Bakar.
We need well-defined channels through which the wasted water could be drained into trunches So that our village might be safe from these incidents Said Ghulam Ahmad.
The drains could be very wide if authorities look into the matter. There is too much vacancy to enlarge the drainage system he adds.
