Tall and big dilapated buildings stood still. All building needs major repairing. Apart from broken of all window glass, it is pathetic to learn that most of the buildings roofs were leaking water.
In the meantime, one officer who dose not want to identify said that how can he repair the building from his own pocket with little salary he got. He is not willing to shift till major repairing is done.
“We cannot sit and work under leaking roof”, he added.
