Deepak Maheshwari, a resident of the area, said, “The colonies developed the civic body are functioning properly. However, most of the colonies do not have civic facilities. There is no co-operation from the government officials as well.”
General board of Jaipur Municipal Corporation (JMC) ceased to exist last year in November. Since then, civic work has been neglected in the area. Now, local representatives are not in charge, the advantage of which is being taken by the officials.
“Door-to-door garbage collection is totally failed. Except in main roads, vehicles do not come to the inner lanes. Depots are coming back and sanitation condition is degrading,” said Rashmi Jain, another resident.
Most of the colonies do not have drainage system and waterlogging is a big problem over there. During monsoon, waterlogged roads had become a major problem as many people were stuck in traffic for long hours.
“In kachhi basti, condition is bad as people are not that politically connected to get their work done. During monsoon, people have to struggle in the locality to get out of their house due to chocked sewerage line and waterlogged roads,” said Kehsav Dhanka, a resident.
In 2014, out of 14 wards in Vidhyadhar Nagar legislative assembly area, 10 seats were with BJP, 2 independents and 2 Congress.
