Residents and industrialists of Phase 5, Focal Point, are worried over decaying of sewage on the roads, as it not only makes movement cumbersome but also raises the issue of sanitation.

Factory owners have complained about the problem to the municipal corporation several times, but to no avail.

Residents say the civic body authorities have not visited the area even after receiving several complaints from them.

Hardeep Pahwa, manager of Rajindra Forge Private Limited, said: “I have called executive engineer of the municipal corporation many times to resolve this problem, but no one from the department came here to take stock of the situation.”

Kamlesh Bansal, zonal commissioner (Zone B), MC, said: “I have asked the authorities concerned to solve this issue. The problem will be resolved as soon as possible.”

Sher Bahadur, a resident, said: “We don’t allow our children to move out of houses as any exposure to the area could make them ill. We want that sewage should be cleaned. The problem will increase if it remains unattended.”
