KHAR, 10, October: The clogged drain forces the commuters to wade through flooded road outside Agency Headquarters Hospital that speak volumes about indifference and poor sanitation services of the political administration.

Patients and their attendants visiting the hospital have been faced with immense problems due to the foul smell arising and flood road from the blocked drain.

They criticized the concerned department of the agency for its poor municipal services and said that the drain often remained clogged.
