Requesting anonymity, several office-goers expressed concern over the situation for the past three weeks, saying they were using toilet facilities in the nearby buildings.
Said one of the office staff in the building: "All the 15 toilets in the building have been broken down for renovation."
Another office-goer, equally peeved over the situation, alleged, "toilets in this building have never been maintained properly by the management. There is always one leakage or the other with no one bothered for the repair. Tired of this pathetic situation, some of the offices have even complained to the Dubai Municipality (DM) about this. DM inspectors visited the building and asked the building management to get the toilets repaired. In response, the management inexplicably got all the toilets demolished at one time without making any alternative arrangements for us. And they are turning a deaf ear to our pleadings now!"
When contacted, officials of the Nasser Rashid Lootah Group, which owns the building, refuted the allegations of the office-goers. Mahmood, an official of the company said, "this is a false allegation. The toilets were in a bad shape but then it's the tenants of the building who are responsible for this. They had messed up with the entire place without bothering about cleanliness and hygiene. The same people who have looked the other way to our repeated requests to maintain cleanliness are now blaming us."Mahmood added: "The Municipality has asked us to renovate the toilets. We are working upon their instructions. It's also wrong to say that all the toilets have been out of order for three weeks. The last toilet was broken down just a couple of days ago. And the workers are working round the clock, even on Fridays, to finish off the job as soon as possible."
