CitySpidey spoke to a few residents to get hold of the problem. A resident of the society, Sunil Sareen said, “There is rainwater all around the Imperial Garden, and in some places sewer water is increasing the possibility of spread of diseases in the area.”

Another resident of the society, Amit Yadav said, “We met with CMO on August 27 but he forwarded this letter to Commissioner MCG, then we met with Mukesh Kumar Ahuja, Commissioner Municipal Corporation of Gurugram. He directed Ramesh, Superintendent Engineer to resolve this issue and I myself had a discussion with him.”

“We gave a lot of suggestions but to date, nothing worked. Nobody is bothering what residents are facing. The situation is critical, residents started having viral fevers. They don't understand what administration and government are doing. The residents raised the issue 1,000 times through social media plaform Twitter,” he informed.

“This is a regular problem of this sector. Last year, with less rain, it took one complete month for water to drain out. This year due to heavy rains, water has accumulated in a long area and it's already been one and a half months and it's going to take 3-4 months for it to automatically drain out,” said Bhisham Kaushik, a resident of the society.

“We approached MCG and CMO but no solution has come yet. Due to this, we are getting news from our society that kids are having fever, viral, etc. every other day. There is no proper drainage linkage between the nullah coming from Dwarka expressway side to Sector 102. It should be properly connected till Najafgarh drain which is somewhere broken in between Dwarka expressway and this sector,” he added.
