    Years of alleged encroachments on waterbodies and nalas in Jalpally municipality, Rangareddy, have led to water clogging in various colonies and a lack of proper outlets to drain flood water. In some areas, road and sewage line construction has not been effective in addressing the issue, and filth and water clogging continue to pose health risks to the residents. The absence of sewage lines has resulted in sewage from septic tanks accumulating on the streets and corners of several wards.

    The lack of public health facilities, such as Urban Primary Health Centres and Community Health Centres, has further worsened the situation for the residents. People of all ages are suffering from different seasonal and chronic illnesses due to the absence of proper sanitary measures and healthcare facilities. The residents are frustrated with the authorities’ inadequate response to their needs.

    Residents have expressed their concerns about the poor state of streets and corners in colonies, which become pools of filth and mud after even a small amount of rain. Although the authorities have started cementing some roads in a few wards ahead of the upcoming elections, this has only exacerbated the problem, as there are no sewage lines in place. The residents themselves took the initiative to build a sewage facility in Abubakar Colony last year, highlighting that this issue extends beyond their ward.

    Abdul Bari, Vice President of the Congress Committee in Jalpally municipality, stated that sewage spillage is not limited to the rainy season but occurs on regular days as well. He blamed the lack of proper planning for a sewage system before road construction as the main cause of the ongoing sanitary issues in Jalpally. Despite repeatedly bringing this issue to the attention of the authorities, no action has been taken.

    According to an anonymous municipal official, the situation has arisen due to encroachments on nalas in several colonies. The difficulty in finding outlets to connect these nalas to the newly built sewage system has exacerbated the problem in most areas. However, the official claimed that their efforts to resolve the issue have been successful in some areas.
