Is this normal?

kids-in-the-gutter.jpgThe stuff that’s roaming around in sewerage pipes cannot possibly be fun stuff. This isn’t the first time I have seen this – In fact, if you notice the sludge that these “cleaners” threw out to the left side of the photograph, that’s actually a construction site that has a pipe running into the sewerage pipe that’s been dumping the waste into the pipes.. The construction site has not only managed to cause this filth to be thrown out into the street, but has blocked the entire street so they can be a bit more comfortable in their building their project.

Do they have a permit for the building? Yes. Of course. Do they have a permit for taking over the street? For dumping the fecal waste from the gutter onto the road? No. Is anyone saying anything to them? We’re all driving around, causing major discomfort to ourselves.. 3-4 police cars have passed by without as much as slowing down.

Is this really normal?

    It is a case of DHA Monitoring ~ Vigilance teams to notice and act upon,

    Not police, not many believe that Police is to enforce law which Fortunately serves only their vested interest or the interest of elected Parliament,

    For us commoners they are extortion mafia in uniform,

    Nice capture,

    It would be more normal if these cleaners leave the sludge on the road and the kids start playing football

    we have become habitual of these eye-sores,

    the best we do is curse, avoid & move on considering it as responsibility of someone else not OURS., to report or raise voice about it.

    more concerning is the health risks associated with the jobs of these cleaners…these are the conditions they work in. Totally deplorable.
