VV-PACS Community Correspondent Md Waseem reports from Gadipirka block, Lucknow district, Uttar Pradesh about the horrible condition of sewer system. The residents have been facing this issue since the past 5 years. The sewer has not been cleaned for more than a year, leading to water spilling on the road.
"There is no playground for our children. They have to play along the streets and are exposed to this dirt" says Fahim Akhtar, a resident at Gadipirka. "We filed complaints regarding this to our M.L.A but no action has been taken till now."
Call to Action:
To help you can call Amit Trivedi, M.LA, Gadipirka, Lucknow, U.P on 9198127777 and ask him to get the sewage system fixed and deploy a sweeper in the area.
