Thiruvananthapuram: Mayor Arya Rajendran is going abroad to learn about development models, but back in her own ward, around 50 families are dealing with a big problem. People in Devi Nagar, Mudavanmugal division of Thiruvananthapuram Corporation, are struggling to leave their homes because of burst drainage and dirty water.
People in the area are upset because the mayor doesn’t answer their calls . They say kids and the elderly are getting sick due to the dirty water. When they try calling the mayor, her dad picks up and seems annoyed.
In response to the ongoing crisis, the people of Devi Nagar, led by the BJP, organised a protest, urging an immediate resolution to the drainage problem. People are asking, can the mayor solve their problems after seeing examples from other countries?
Even though they spent crores on staging Keraleeyam in the city, where the mayor was in charge, the Thiruvananthapuram Corporation still hasn’t fixed the waterlogging problem bothering the people. Residents are now worried about the upcoming monsoon and are asking what will happen if the problem persists. Unfortunately, neither the mayor nor the ruling party in the corporation seems to have time to listen to these concerns.
