Light showers in the past one week have exposed the claims of the administration in Sector 10 A as residents complain that waterlogging is a major problem in the low-lying area. One can spot muddy cesspools at many places.

The situation is the worst outside house numbers 1-550 and 800-1,000.

Residents allege that the lack of a stormwater drainage system is the reason behind the pathetic condition. In the absence of the system, it is difficult to cross a stretch after a mild rainfall.

Residents said when the sector was set up around two decades ago the drainage system was in place.

Naresh Kumar, president of Sector 10 A residents welfare association (RWA), said, "I have apprised the administration about the problem several time, but nothing has been done so far. Though they have carpeted some roads, residents are still worried about the rainwater disposal system."

Besides, residents are worried due to the rising cases of snatching. The other civic issues include the parks are not well-maintained. So, senior citizen and morning walkers find it difficult to take a stroll.

Jaswant Singh, junior engineer of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) said, "We have started the patch work of road and stormwater drain is also being repaired. Things will be better by the monsoon."
