PASIGHAT: Once again the monsoon is right at our doorstep and also the pre-monsoon rain has already hit the state, but the authorities concern of Pasighat are yet to notice the unhygienic environment in the market areas out of rain water stagnation.

Recently during first week of May, the vegetable vendors led by Smty Rinchin Taloh had raised the issue and had appealed the authorities concern, especially the Dy. Commissioner, Pasighat to direct the concern department to clear all the clogged drains which is causing the stagnation of rain water. On 1st May last, the vegetable vendors had faced inundation of almost all the vegetable market places by stagnant rain water which not only caused harassment to the vendors, but also to the common public of Pasighat buying vegetables from the market.

“We are not been able to carry out our business properly at the time of rain as rain water stagnation causes huge problem for movement of customers/buyers and also creates untidiness of vegetables put for sale”, said some local vegetable vendors. While another woman said that, the rainwater stagnation took bigger shape and become more problematic after construction of drains which were supposed to give more relieved to the market people by easy passes of rainwater.vlcsnap-2019-05-18-22h06m48s773

The slack approach and negligence from the municipal and UD departments toward clearing the clogged drains are being condemned by almost all the visitors of Pasighat vegetable market. The concern authorities need to give immediate attention this major problem of clogged drains and stagnant rainwater which may also cause major diseases like Malaria and Dengue in case of further negligence in coming days.

It is worth mentioning here that, the drainage system was built/constructed by the concern department or by a group of councilors one or two years ago, but at many places the drains are seen broken or found blocked, reasons of which are better known to the concern department and their engineers who designed the town’s drainage system.

 

But by seeing the overall unhygienic atmosphere of market, the District Administration and concern department need to initiative a measure so as to clear all the clogged drains before the full monsoon rain hit the town again.
