Not a single road gully is cleaned in the city.  The civic body had floated tenders for cleaning road gullies three times, but not a single bidder showed his interest.  The situation is so worse in the city that it can be gauged from the fact that the MC is ready for quotation work, but no contractor is willing to come forward. Last year, there was a flood-like situation in Sector 19, where rainwater had entered the houses and had damaged household items, including sofas, beds and washing machines.  As the work of cleaning road gullies is yet to start, residents living in low-lying areas, especially in Sector 19, are worried.  An contractor, who did not wish to be named, said they were not coming forward because of infighting among the Mayor, MLA, MC Commissioner and councillors.  “No contractor can work peacefully in the MC as allegations and ...
