Garbage dumps galore in Ambala village

AMBALA Cantonment's Tundla village is crying for better hygienic conditions. Residential areas have garbage dumps, stagnant water ponds and heaps of cow dung. The area behind the village government school is full of filth. Why are locals being forced to living under such conditions? The MC authorities need to have an effective system of garbage lifting and disposal. The village people must also contribute towards cleanliness and keep their areas neat. It is a collective effort.

Kaithal-Patiala road in poor condition

HUGE potholes dot the road stretch from Kaithal gaushala to Patiala passing from outside the cremation ground, causing inconvenience to commuters. The road work started by the municipal council was stopped months ago after some residents objected to the use of poor material. Many famous temples visited by locals in large numbers are also situated in this area. The MC should wake up from slumber and start the construction at the earliest and make this important road motorable.

Land registration ban no solution

THE state government decision to ban the registration of land deeds is not a solution to the real problem. Land mafia along with the three main government departments — tehsils, town planning and municipal authorities — have an important role in the development of illegal colonies. These can't be developed without the patronage of some higher officials and politicians. If the government really wants to stop this then it will have to take stringent measures. First, there should not be registry of any sale deed of agricultural land, which shows boundaries of plot less than 500 sq yards. However, the sale deed of such land can be registered only as per the share of the landlords. Second, if someone wants to get the registry of plots, shops and houses up to 500 sq yards within the municipal limits or controlled area done then it should be made mandatory to quote his/her property number, sanctioned site plan and CLU from the municipality concerned.

Finally, the accountability of the officials of the municipalities, town planning and tehsils concerned should be ensured for allowing the illegal colonies to develop.

If this still happens, strict action against the guilty officers and land mafia should be implemented and the government must stop illegal construction. It should be made andatory to have a registration number of every property i.e. plot, house and shop etc across the state.
