    Residents of low-lying areas in Secunderabad Cantonment are worried as the monsoon approaches. The Cantonment Board has not taken any steps to prevent water stagnation and mosquito breeding in nearby areas. Locals are requesting the Cantonment officials to set up an entomology wing and emergency response team.

    The residents have noticed that the Cantonment Board lacks a separate entomology wing, unlike the GHMC which acts quickly to clear water stagnation and fallen trees during monsoons. In Secunderabad Cantonment, it takes at least 20 hours to address water-logged areas and other monsoon-related issues.

    Residents also highlighted the absence of fogging operations for mosquito control in the Cantonment limits. Without an entomology wing, waterborne diseases are a common occurrence. Establishing a dedicated team to address these problems was suggested by Venkat, another resident.
