Residents of Kapil Park are a harried lot as problems, including choked sewerage, contaminated water supply and commercial activities in residential area, are not being addressed by the administration.

Moreover, the residents are demanding resignation of ward number 28 councillor Maharaj Singh Raji. They alleged that he misbehaved with some people who were recording the conservation during his visit to the area on March 31.

They have been complaining about the choked sewerage, contaminated water supply and commercial activities in the residential area again and again but the civic body seems to turn a blind eye.

On the request of residents, Maharaj visited the colony to inspect the problem of overflowing sewerage. The residents claimed that they were demanding an assurance from the councillor in written to resolve the issues but he allegedly misbehave with some of the people who were recording this scene.

Himanshu Kwatra, president of Keshav Srushti Welfare Society of Kapil Park, said, “The choked sewerage is a major problem in the area but the councillor always ignores it. The councillor claimed that funds are not available to redress our problem.”

“We invited the councillor to listen to our problems but he started misbehaving with children who were recording the conservation. So, we are demanding his resignation,” he added.

Secretary of the organisation Vivek Sharma said that they were living under helllike conditions and if the representative could not listen our voice then what is need of a councillor?

It was worth mentioning here that the mayor Harchran Singh Gohalwaria had also visited the area few days ago to know about the problems being faced by the residents.

On Sunday, BJP district president Parveen Bansal and former MLA Harish Rai Dhanda also met the residents to listen to their problems, he added.

When contacted, Congress councillor Maharaj Singh Raji denied the allegations and claimed that he did not misbehave with the residents.

He said the problem of sewerage was due to non-functioning motors of sewerage treatment plant at Balloke.
