No end to stray animal menace

Stray animal menace continues to haunt state residents. Strays roaming on Karnal roads are posing risk to the lives of residents. Besides, they have made farming a difficult task, leading to financial losses to farmers. If the ruling BJP-JJP coalition government doesn't pay attention to the menace in time then this will become a burning issue for the Opposition parties and hence have serious consequences. Shakti Singh, Karnal

Defunct streetlights trouble commuters

Streetlights from Harial Chowk to Tohana junction on the National Highway-71, which passes from Narwana, are lying defunt. The NHAI has started collecting toll tax long back but the entire stretch remains dark at night. Stray cattle can bee seen sitting on roadsides and accidents happen quite frequently because of darkness. A generator set has also been placed near the bus stand to switch on to lights in case of emergency, but it remains defective most of the time. The NHAI should resolve the issue at the earliest. Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

Rain floods Ambala's Sector 9

Incessant rain on Tuesday caused serious havoc in Sector 9 of Ambala even when the administration was apprised of the plight in advance. However, when the situation arised, nobody came to the rescue. Rainwater has entered houses and sewage has got mixed with drinking water, making locals' lives more miserable amid Covid. The administration should take cognisance of issue at the earliest. Gian P Kansal, Ambala

Unemployment takes toll on mental health

People from all walks of life are suffering due to Covid, which has led to a bigger problem of unemployment in the state. People have lost their source of income, some are getting lesser salaries, others were terminated from workplaces. Also, slowdown of business, inflation and lack of employment opportunities being other major issues. Survival has become tough, especially for people belonging to middle and lower classes. Many are facing mental health issues like depression, leading to an increase in suicides, with lack of employment being one of the major causes. The state government should take effective measures against unemployment at the earliest. Vikram Sharma, Panchkula
