Taking note of the continuous overflow of sewage water on the expressway near Sector 15, Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) administrator Praveen Kumar asked his officials to mend the leakage and explain the reason for delay in repair work.
The newly-appointed Huda chief, during a surprise inspection, took his subordinates to task after he noticed the leakage in sewage line, which has been damaging the green belt and posing health risk for the residents in the area.
"This leakage should immediately stop. Let me know why has it been happening and for how long, and I will take action against the irresponsible authority," Kumar said.
The administrator also asked his officials to clear an overflowing sump well in Sector 15, which is also close to the green belt of expressway. "This should be stopped in 24 hours and action taken report should be submitted to me at the earliest," he said.
The administrator, who often conducts such random inspections, was accompanied by MLA Rao Dharampal and estate officer (EO) Narender Singh Yadav on Saturday, when he visited the area at the crack of dawn, pretending to go on morning walk.
He also imposed fine on some of the residents who were found wasting drinking water for cleaning their cars and causing inconveniences to pedestrians by spreading water on the roads.
