Open invitation to tragedy
By The Tribune 23-Jun-2019
Even though the authorities earlier claimed that they had not found any open borewell in the city, several open manholes and road gullies continue to pose a threat to the lives of people.
A 20-foot-deep manhole near Axis Bank in Sector 34-A is lying open for the past several days. Traders say they have contacted the authorities concerned to get it covered but to no avail.
“It is a market place and has a high footfall. We caution passersby, especially children, about this open hole. To alert people, we keep a branch of a tree in it. We do not want anyone to accidentally fall into it,” said Raman Kumar, a local resident.
An uncovered manhole in Hallo Majra poses a threat too but the authorities are yet to wake up.
Likewise, several road gullies are lying open in different parts of the city. Road gullies are maintained by the MC. After repair or maintenance work, these are left uncovered. The MC workers return to cover these after a long delay.
