CUTTACK: People living in Cuttack Development Authority (CDA) on Thursday blocked the road in Sector 6 to protest against the sub-standard condition of roads, poor sewerage and drainage system in the area.
Trouble started in the morning when part of the underground drain caved in damaging the road. This panicked the residents and passers-by. Peeved over poor civic amenities and bad condition of roads and drainage system, residents started the demonstration. The agitating residents blocked the road by burning tyres and raised slogans against the civic body. Traffic was disrupted for hours due to the protest.
“The roads are filled with craters and the drainage system is in the shambles. Everyday accidents take place on this stretch due to poor condition of roads and today a part of the sewage line caved in. The entire area has turned into a death trap,” said Gadadhar Sahoo, an agitating resident.
