Community toilet needs repairs

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched a drive to free India of garbage again and has asked the district authorities concerned to repair the community toilets in the area. A community toilet exists on the premises of the Sector-9 Ambala market close to the office of the SDE, HSVP. Money was spent on the renovation of the toilet, but it is in a pathetic condition. Toilet sheet and urinal pot are squalid and smeared with moss. It is surprising why the stakeholders of the Swachhata Abhiyan are not taking note of it. — Gian P Kansal, Ambala City

Road to Tohana in poor condition

In August, 2019, the Old Court road to Tohana, via Subzi Mandi, grain market, Punjabi Dharamshala and covered godowns of CWC,FCI, was repaired by the Nagar Parishad with an investment of Rs 90 lakh. The people heaved a sigh of relief. But their joy was short-lived as within just six months, there were big potholes and the road simply vanished. Even trucks get stuck in the ditches and have to be taken out with the help of cranes. The authorities should come forward and act at once. — Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

Give benefits under PMFBY to farmers

The plight of farmers has not changed despite the present government introducing the scheme of Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana under the supervision of the Agriculture Department in collaboration with the banks of areas concerned. The enigmatic disease has caused heavy losses to rabi crops in Ambala district. The crop yield this season has reduced, putting farmers in the lurch. The farmers had paid the premium of insurance through related banks to insurance companies operating in the area specified by the government in December. Since then, considerable period has lapsed, but neither the banks nor companies are showing any amenability. The government has also not taken cognisance of the issue. The farmers are in a fix as they do not know what to do next. Now when the banks dues are increasing and crop loss has occurred, the government must come to the rescue of farmers. — Samsher Singh, GP Kansal, Ambala

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?
