Water scarcity, garbage, power outages bane of Agonda
Drinking water scarcity is the major problem that the residents of Agonda village panchayat have.
Housewives, who have to face the brunt of water, spoke their hearts out and said that it is the duty of the elected government to give enough water to the residents, but the government is lacking in technology on how to tap the available water and hence people have to suffer.
They said that the river has enough water flowing upto October-November every year but the bandhara constructed here some years back, has developed several leakages and as such the people have to go without water.
The next problem which the residents living at Davalkhazan face is the dilapidated condition of the BoriePul bridge which has developed several cracks and may give way, hence an alternate bridge is the need of the hour.
If this bridge gives way, the residents will be highly inconvenienced and will face a lot of hardships.
She said that the bridge issue was discussed in length and continuously debated for the last many gram sabhas over the years, wherein the panchayat authority after sending the resolution approached the concerned authority for a quick re-survey and necessary follow up.
A resident from Davalkhazan who does not wish to be named said that a few months ago shacks/tents/cottage have been taken up by the people along the coastal belt.
If this bridge gives way, it will inconvenience and cause hardship to tourists who use the bridge to land at Davalkhazan.
The wires mounted on electric poles have not been replaced.
Many electric lines run though small and big trees and during heavy wind they brush against branches resulting in a total black out.
