    Khajanchi Mohalla Khad flows towards Ram Nagar ( Lower Dharamsala ) & flows under two bridges on Khanyara Road ( Chander Marg ).
    When it rains , the water carries huge amounts of plastic which gets deposited on the roads running down hill .
    Also , the Khad is used as a public toilet by many people .
    You are requested to depute your staff to carry out an ‘ On Site Inspection ‘ .
    There is no point in creating a ‘Smart City’ if basic infrastructure is not in place — It will remain a failed Government programme .
