No end to stray cattle menace in Panchkula

I want to draw the attention of the civic body authorities to the increasing menace of stray cattle in Sector 20-21, Panchkula. The civic body is not doing anything to check the menace in the area. These pose a risk to the lives of commuters and residents. The problem needs to be tackled immediately before it results into a mishap and cause a casualty. Entry of stray cattle into the area should be checked. Vigilant squad should be deployed to keep an eye on the entry points from where these get into the area. The officials concerned should pay heed to this problem.

Commuters suffer as rain floods underpass

FOR the past many years, the Railways have implemented a decision to eliminate manned railway crossings into underpasses so that traffic could move unhindered. But, at most places in the state, I observed that such underpasses have become a big nuisance to the people. During rainy season, such underpasses remain flooded and even heavy vehicles such as buses and trucks get stuck in the midway. The government should plan such underpasses in a scientific manner with proper drainage so that they do not become an inconvenience to the commuters.

RWAs should be given a chance

THIS refers to a story, 'Panchkula RWAs to enter civic body poll fray', published by The Tribune on September 15. It is highly encouraging to learn that fed up with the working style of the Panchkula Municipal Corporation, members of several Residents Welfare Associations (RWAs) have decided to contest the upcoming civic body elections, including for the post of Mayor, expected to be held in 20 wards late this year or early next year. They will definitely bring about a change. So, it obviously gets incumbent upon the city residents to give them a chance.

Citizens lack civic sense, responsibility

While I was riding a cycling on the Panjokhara Sahib - Kallarheri Road on Wednesday, a heap of used disposable plates thrown on the road side grabbed my attention. This must have been done by people who had organised a 'bhandara' or some function in the recent past. These plates should have been rightfully disposed off in a garbage bin and not thrown around. Sadly, being citizens, we lack civic sense and responsibility and love to blame the authorities for all bad conditions in the area. No wonder why our city is far from being a smart city and heaps of garbage dumps can be seen easily in the city. Let's educate people about cleanliness and raise our civic sense.

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?
