MOHALI: Residents of Purab Premium Apartments are angry over negligence by the officials of the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (Gmada) as they claim that not even a single person has come to their society from the past two months to lift garbage.
Parwinder, a resident of the society, said, “It is shocking to know that officials of Gmada are promoting the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ and on the other side, the only society under their jurisdiction is in the worst condition.”
This is not the first time that the residents are irked over petty issues as they claim investing in the society was their biggest mistake. The residents told TOI that a private company had been given the tender by the officials of Gmada, but from the past two months, they didn’t come to collect garbage due to which the same has been piled up in the basement of the society.
“The whole society is stinking due to this. It is making impossible for everyone to roam around in the society. Rains have made the situation worse,” said another resident.
Col Dalwinder Singh, general secretary of the society, has written to the chief administrator of Gmada and has mentioned that the housekeeping staff recently held a protest in front of the PUDA Bhawan and alleged that they have not been paid wages for the past seven months.
Gmada chief administrator Pradeep Kumar Agrawal could not be contacted.
