QILA DIDAR SINGH - Heaps of garbage, polluting the environment and making the atmosphere stinky have turned Ladhewala Warraich into a landfill.

A survey report conducted by this correspondent reveals that there are witnessed piles of dirt and trash in the playgrounds and streets of Ladhewala Warraich.

During the survey, locals told the scribe that Ladhewala Warraich was a native town of a federal minister. “It has been upgraded to municipal committee but its problems are yet to be resolved,” they flayed. They regretted hat despite recruitment of dozens of sanitary workers in municipal committee, cleanliness in the area was still a dream yet to be materialised. “The garbage heaps have become breeding grounds for the mosquitoes and flies not to speak of the poor sewerage system which cannot drain off the sewage accumulated in the streets,” they said.

Locals also apprised The Nation of their deprivation of clean drinking water as the water filtration plants, installed at different places in the city, have been left knackered.

“Besides, the road leading from Alam Chowk to Ladhewala Warraich was replete with encroachments , causing traffic mess and severe problems for the motorists,” they expressed displeasure. They pointed out that Ladhewala Warraich had become the ‘city of problems’ where none of the authorities concerned was ready to pay attention to the woes of people.

They flayed inactiveness of the municipal committee and demanded effective steps for solution to their problems.
