Rains spew all Hyderabad's garbage back 19.9.2019
Hyderabad: Heavy rains on Tuesday night have led to silt from the sewage drains to overflow on the roads in the Sainkpuri, Kapra, Yapral, Old Alwal, Malkagiri residential colonies as the drains were filled with plastic, glass bottles, paper, tea cups, condoms, sanitary pads, diapers and other waste dumped in them.
