Dwarka: The woes of residents living in Adarsh Apartments, a residential society in Sector 3, Pocket 16, Dwarka do not seem to be coming to an end. They are still facing problems in bits and pieces. This has led to them being wary of any future occurrence of what they experienced in the last two days.
Life was in complete disarray for more than two days after heavy rain on Saturday. There was waterlogging everywhere inside the society and it led to disruption in electricity and water supply. The residents were forced to take shelter in friends' and relatives' houses.
Although there is no waterlogging now after a 48-hours-long effort of draining water from society, the residents are still struggling to get potable water. The Resident Welfare Association (RWA) informed that all the motors have gone defunct and as a result, the drinking water supply was disrupted.
Since Saturday morning, the residents are not getting a water supply. “We are facing a severe water crisis and waiting for any relief. As assured by the civic bodies, they would restore the machines for supply, yet we have no idea when we will start getting proper drinking water supply,” said General Secretary of RWA, Devesh Mundepi.
Mundepi said that proper restoration of drinking water and electricity supply remains a challenge in society. According to him, many electrical equipment, electric panel and booster pumps have gone defunct. “It will take few days to get all things back on track. Residents have been patient all this while and given great moral support,” Mundepi added.
After the utter chaos which was witnessed in the society after rain, the residents are skeptical about the similar situation that may crop up after rain in the future. Almost in chorus, they said that they want a permanent solution to the problem.
One of the residents said that they were subjected to a lot of trauma. Amrendra Pandey, a resident said, “We cannot even imagine such kind of situation in future. The authorities should ensure that this kind of situation does not emerge again.”
