The residents complaint of non-availability of even basic amenities including roads, sewerage, cleanliness, water supply and security.

Several representations have been made to authorities but of no avail, said they adding that roads are broken, streets are unpaved, sewerage is choked, insanitary conditions prevails all around. ``So pathetic is the conditions that the Coonies which include PUDA approved areas gives the picture of slums. There is total neglect and living conditions are inhabitable”, said a resident.
