The woes of people in Kurnool town, about 290 km from Hyderabad, still continue even after receding of floodwater, which ravaged the entire city five days ago.

Though the floodwater has receded completely, the roads and streets are filled up with slush, which had entered the houses during floods.

People are having a tough time cleaning their houses besides facing shortage of essential commodities.

"The district administration engaged about 2,000 workers for sanitation works in the town today," District Collector Mukesh Kumar Meena told PTI over phone.

"As the strength of sanitary workers in the town was not sufficient, we have taken services of workers from nearby mandals and municipalities," he said.

He said 400 more workers from Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) would arrive here to participate in sanitation work by tomorrow as repairing of roads breached between Kurnool and Hyderabad is likely to be completed by this evening.
