The Residents Welfare Association (RWA) of Defence Colony here has urged the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) to look into the matter of aggravated mosquito breeding as well as security hazards.

Residents have complained about a lack of CCTV coverage in the area.

"It's been long and matters are not getting resolved. None of the concerned authorities are ready to help us. Among many other issues, the colony is also facing problems of overflowing sewage, unauthorized hawkers, pot holes, lack of speed breakers on roads, dumping of junk cars and lack of modern garbage collection services," RWA President, Major Ranjit Singh (retired) told ANI.

Singh further said that it is getting extremely difficult for them to manage what is a very difficult scenario.

The RWA recently invited local MLA, Madan Lal and Municipal Councilor Seema Malik to appraise them of the deteriorating civic conditions. Malik was represented by her husband Bhopender Malik.

Following the discussion on Wednesday, it was decided that there is an immediate need for improved coordination between key civic agencies like Public Works Department (PWD), Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and Delhi Development Authority (DDA).
