    It is ridiculous to see the City Administration sit on their hands and do nothing about water clogging year after year. They need to all drown in this gutter for their criminal negligence and apathy towards the City and its people.

      I totally agree with your comment on city administration. Having said that, who throws plastic bags, gutka wraps in the dump. Should we be also a bit considerate towards littering!
