Gurgaon: MCG has failed to repair an overflowing sewer on the road connecting gate number 2 of Ardee City with Artemis hospital even though it has received complaints for around a week ago. Also, a garbage dump outside the colony, which has not been cleared for more than a month, has aggravated the sanitation problem in the area. Residents said sewage overflow besides being a health hazard also makes it difficult for commuters to use that road. Sewage has been overflowing for a week now on the road and our complaint has not been resolved despite chasing the officials. I have now finally complained on the CM Window hoping to get the problem addressed. Moreover, the garbage dump has been lying here for a month now. We have never witnessed such a quantity of waste dumped outside our colony.
