Meerut. Usually, marriage takes place in someone’s house, so the family members are busy about how the wedding processions will be welcomed, how the daughter will leave. But people of a locality in Meerut blocked the road for the sake of daughter’s procession. These people say that after three days there is a daughter’s wedding in their locality and the drain and sewer water is flowing in the whole street. When the tired people did not know any way after pleading with the Municipal Corporation, they blocked the road.
The matter is of the area around Meerut’s Ibj intersection. There is a problem of lack of cleanliness and sewer jam here for a long time. People say that cleaning work is not being done in the entire area. Sewer lines are blocked. Many times the officials of the Municipal Corporation have been informed, but the hearing has not taken place. People told that the municipal corporation had passed a budget of 7.5 crores for sewer cleaning, but the work was not visible on the ground. That’s why they are expressing their protest.
For a long time, people blocked the road by putting bamboo sticks. During this, the officials tried to open the jam, but people were not ready to accept it. People told the officials that the sewer line, which had been closed for years, should be opened and cleaned, only then the movement would end. After a long time, when the municipal vehicle came and the work of cleaning started, then people ended the jam. The people of the locality told that they were more worried about how they would welcome the processions in such a mess.
During this, there was a scuffle between the protesters and the officials. CO Kotwali Arvind Chaurasia reached the spot and explained to the people and saw the submerged streets. People told him that after three days the daughter is to be married here. If the procession comes, then how will the program be done? The CO took the photo of the submerged streets from the mobile and gave assurance, then the jam opened.
