As we all are facing the imbroglio in Dimapur Town due to the drainage problems and the pathetic road condition, which sole reason lies to the fact that we have lack of drainage and no proper maintenance of it by the labourers of State and National Highways.

The poor drainage systems did major damages at Dimapur  town during the monsoon season by flooding the areas and many were homeless at that hour.

I would like to let you know that the present situation in Dimapur  is getting worse day by day due to the poor functioning and negligence of the PWD and the Government. It is common to see that the streets of the city are flooded with water as the summer season approaches, with a poor drainage system the surrounding areas usually gets engulfed in Flood water, if the same condition prevail few more years there will be chance of spreading diseases. IT seems that the department is not willing to fix the problem even though the problem is damaging the whole town.

Dimapur Municipal Council (DMC) Labourer cleaned the drainage between Metro Hospital and D.C Court along with the public who reside at the surroundings area which took a total of 4 days.

Flooding has been a big concern owing to the poor drainage infrastructure in the town the concern department workers are paying no heed of it.

So, I would like to know that why the state and National Highway Labourers are getting their salaries? Without doing the work why they are paid for? Even the Government offices surroundings drainage system gets clogged because of not cleaning by the office labourers, then what is the use to pay for? If the DMC are only going to work for the drainage, then the government should stop paying the labourers under National Highway and State, or  the Government instead of using them in their own farms and houses, the labourers should work under DMC to improve the drainage system.

Therefore, I would like to appeal the concern authorities to look into the matter and improve the drainage system at the earliest to stop diseases and causes ill health of the people in the town.
