Tree a nuisance for residents

THE adjoining picture is of Sector 9, Ambala City. A jamun (blackberry) tree has become a nuisance for the residents. The ripe fruit falls on the road after light wind. It can also result into mishaps as children can be seen climbing the tree often. The expansion and growth of the tree can be harmful to the structures and buildings in the vicinity. People here demand that the tree should either be pruned or removed permanently. The concerned department must look into the matter before it becomes a cause of any accident. — GIAN P KANSAL, Ambala

Stray cattle menace continues unabated

THE menace of stray cattle at the Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran, Sector 13, Kurukshetra, has become erratic and poses a continuous threat to the residents. Some dairy owners here set these cows free on roads in Kailash Nagar without any fear of penalty by the Municipal Council, Thanesar. The animals sometimes also cause nuisance in the area and it becomes troublesome for the residents. Field staff of the MC should look into issue and do the needful before they become a cause of an accident. — Ved Parkash, Kurukshetra

2 murders in a week terrify residents

DURING the ongoing pandemic when people are already scared, the recent two murders in Narwana have terrified the residents. Last week, in Mor Patti area, a youth was shot dead when he was sitting outside his house. On Sunday, a shopkeeper on Mal Godown Road, was stabbed to death in broad daylight. In both the cases, the assailants were young motorcyclists, who fled the spot after committing the crime. The police are yet to trace them. — Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

Discrepancy in electricity bill

THERE was a discrepancy in the electricity bill of my home. The bill on the hard copy that I got showed the total payable amount to be Rs 962, while when I checked the same online, it was Rs 486. As I highlighted the issue with the authorities before paying the amount, I was supposed to pay the lesser amount only. If I had not checked it online, I might have to pay the wrong amount. The concerned authorities must look into the issue as the same mistake may have been made with others also. — Sachin Nain, Panchkula

People fight stigma with covid

ANOTHER rising problem among people who test positive for Covid is the stigma that they face due to the pandemic. We should act responsible and avoid any such discrimination against people who suffer from the disease. We should also be providing mental support to them and boost their moral. — Vidya Sagar Garg, Panchkula

Is a civic issue bothering you? Are you agitated over the lack of concern? Is there something heartening that you feel needs to be highlighted? Or a picture which in your opinion ought to be seen by many, and not just you?
