Mahendragarh, August 13

All interior roads in Mahendragarh are in a pathetic condition with the situation getting worse in monsoon. Despite locals raising the issue several times, nothing has changed.

However, a social outfit has now put up hoardings at various places in the city to draw the attention of the higher authorities towards the issue. The hoardings installed by the Shri Sundram Trust read: "Should the residents of Mahendragarh city stop paying the rent of Municipal Committee or taxes! Why rent and taxes when no basic facilities are available!" The hoardings have become a talk of the town.

"People pay taxes to Local Bodies for basic amenities but no road has been constructed in Mahendragarh city since a long time. People are facing a lot of inconvenience even while walking on roads whereas the authorities are turning a blind eye towards this burning issue. Why should we pay taxes without getting basic facilities," said Sandeep Malra, chief of the Trust.

He said the move was not only aimed at drawing the attention of the higher authorities but also for motivating locals to take stringent decision to mount pressure on them for getting rid of this problem.
