Mohammad Zafar, a local shop owner, pointed out “I don’t think it’s worth living here any more when the government and the civic agencies are completely indifferent from your problems. That’s why I have shifted to my in laws house in Dwarka. I come here just because I own a shop but I stay these days in Dwarka itself.”

Mr. Zafar also accused the political representatives at the local level, like councillor Mohammad Jamaluddin and MLA, Asif Mohammad Khan, to be responsible for situation which is getting worse day by day.

“Had Asif Mohammad Khan and Jamaluddin actively pushing MCD for cleaning the area, the situation would not have come to such a pass,” he added.
