The residents of the Nampally, Bazaar Ghat, Mallepally, and surrounding areas are flabbergasted over the non-functioning of the streetlights. It has been for several days that the streetlights have not been working. Residents alleged that no one turned up to resolve the problem, though there were many representations to concerned officials.
The residents also complained that not only this issue but also there were various civic problems which are causing inconvenience to them. The problem was brought to the notice of the concerned officials, but nothing has been done. The locals fear that there is a chance of anti-social activities due to the absence of streetlights in the area.
One of the residents of Bazar Ghat said that the streetlights have not been working for several weeks now. Despite several messages and complaints through social media and representation from the residents to official concerns, no steps have been taken to this date, and the area remains in the dark. The women folks are afraid to go out at night. The working women are finding it difficult to reach home after 7 PM.
