The johads of Gumthala village are always overflowing. littered with dirt. Dirty water also fills the streets. There are heaps of dirt everywhere in the village. It is said that when MP Naib Singh Saini came to the village, people raised these issues in front of him. He also assured to solve the problem, but in reality nothing happened.

The outgoing sarpanch Krishna Mehta and other people here had demanded that proper arrangement should be made for the drainage of dirty water. Drain should be constructed. The people of the village are disappointed when the problems are not resolved.

People say that even after three years of adopting the village, development work has not been done. When MP wanted to talk to Naib Singh Saini about this, he could not be available. Despite repeated calls, there was no response from his side, however, SDO of Panchayati Raj Department Rakesh Kumar said that Johad of village Gumthala would be made a model pound pond at a cost of Rs 1 crore keeping in mind the directions of the NGT. . Apart from this, a drain will be constructed with Rs 38 lakh. Estimates have also been prepared for other development works. The development work will be started soon.
