Akshardham Apartments: Residents angered over silt scattered on footpaths

Dwarka: Residents belonging to Akshardham Apartments, Sector 19, Dwarka, are demanding from civic bodies to remove the silt dumped on the footpaths after cleaning the drain and provide proper roads to walk.

One could see such heaps of silt across the city. The situation has worsened with the rain as silt has now begun to scatter on the road causing foul smell and a slippery surface.

Also, the pathetic condition of roads is causing a lot of problems to commuters in the area and it is tough for vehicles to negotiate the tough surface of roads.

“This is complete negligence of DDA. It should have been removed before the rainy season. This has created a filthy atmosphere in the area,” she said angrily.

Manish Aggarwal, a resident of Sector 19 said, “With most drains not being cleaned for a month or more now, most of these channels are full of silt and garbage too. It can bring lots of vector-borne diseases.

Puru Lakhera, another resident of Akshardham Apartments, said, “It is surprising the silt hasn't been cleaned even after a month. They should have cleaned the area after completing their work.”

When asked about the issue, DDA officials said the silt would be cleaned soon.
