Thick vegetation blocks road

Given that it is a rainy season, tall grass (mostly, congress grass) has grown on both sides of the Defence Colony on the Naraingarh road. So much so that some tree branches have fallen on the road, narrowing the area by three to four ft. It is not only causing inconvenience to commuters, but has also increased the likelihood of road mishaps, making it particularly hazardous for pedestrians and cyclists. There is an immediate need to prune trees, and clear the vegetation from both sides of the road. This should have been done as a SOP during the monsoons. However, before we lose any life, the authorities must act. Safety and convenience of people should be paramount. — Colonel RD Singh (retd), Ambala Cantt

Want to Prevent horse-trading? Amend anti-defection law

After what happened in Madhya Pradesh, the similar political imbroglio in Rajasthan has lent credence to the necessity of an amendment to the anti-defection law to prevent horse-trading of MLAs and toppling of the elected government. In an event where any MLA resigns to evade action under the anti-defection law then his seat should not be filled until the bye-election is held. This way, not only the chances of horse-trading will be eliminated, but also the ruling dispensation will be saved from being toppled by rebel MLAs. — Dr PP Lamoria, Rohtak

Gurugram bus stand toilet in lamentable condition

On Tuesday, while at Gurugram bus stand, I had gone to use a toilet, only to return disappointed. The condition of the toilet was lamentable, with a foul smell emanating from the area. It seemed as if the toilet area had not been cleaned for long. Empty bottles were lying there. Public toilets should be used properly so that others do not have to face any inconvenience. — Subhash C Taneja, Gurugram

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?
