Guntur : Delay in repairing a leaking water pipeline is not only leading to wastage of drinking water but also causing inconvenience to residents of Krishna Nagar in Guntur city. They have lodged complaints with the authorities concerned many times but in vain.
“We took the issue to the notice of the civic officials many times but no action has been taken till now,” said K. Satyanarayana, a resident of the area.
Following the complaints, the civic officials dug a pit to repair the pipeline but did nothing to arrest the wastage of drinking water due to cyclone induced rains for the last four days. Motorists commuting through the area fear the pit, which is left unguarded, can lead to accidents.
An official concerned with the repair works, Venkateswarlu, said they could not complete the repair work as one of the workers doing it died.
“Another worker would be employed and the work will be completed at the earliest possible to avoid inconvenience to the people.” he said.
