Ravinder Sharma, a resident of NGV says, "We face the problem of foul smell and garbage getting collected there on a daily basis since years," the once closed drains were also opened last year due to water clogging. He further added, "… they have still not built the walls around this SWD and we face monsoon floods every year due to this."

Anju Chhabra, another resident of NGV said, "I have been living here for the past 9-10 years and this problem has been going on and on. We face mosquito problems all the time and this becomes worse during monsoons," The residents also complain of foul smell due to the garbage that has not been removed from there for a long time.

The labourers say that they have been given the deadline of one more month to complete the pending work.

Colonel S A Razack, the President of Ghataprabha block in NGV, said, "We have written to the BBMP many times but they do not respond. Foul smell and mosquitoes are only a few problems out of what we face everyday. The work is not constant. It goes on and off all the time".

The residents of NGV are still waiting, hoping the work completes soon.
