No expiry date on sweets

On Monday, I went to three reputed sweet shops and I was shocked to see that no one had displayed the mandatory date of manufacturing and date of expiry on sweets, which were displayed in their show cases. Surprisingly, they feigned ignorance. One shopkeeper had displayed only the date of expiry, and not the date of manufacturing of the sweets. The department concerned must take action againstsuch shopkeepers.

Farmers should stop burning stubble

Though the Haryana Government has made stubble burning a penal offence, yet it has not served as a deterrence to farmers. This truth is corroborated by the fact that during the current paddy harvesting season, the leftover crops have been consigned to flames in various districts. The government will be seeking an undertaking in the form of a panchayat resolution to put a permanent ban on crop residue burning. The village panchayat bagging the first position to implement the ban will be honoured with a prize of Rs 10 lakh. The farming community should introspect and shun this health decaying practice.

Treetlights near school Non-functional

All streetlights, including the single halogen light on the L-shaped intersection, on both B roads in front of the gate of Saint Soldier Divine Public School, Sector 16, Panchkula, are non-functional for the past six months or so, leading to darkness in the night. The said road is the main traffic-bearing road of this sector and site of many accidents. Despite numerous complaints to the UHBVNL, nothing has been done so far. The authorities should immediately take corrective action by replacing the fused tube lights/halogen bulb.

Allot filling stations to civic bodies

Taking a cue from the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, Panchkula and other MCs too should venture into the lucrative petrol pump service in cities to augment their revenue and offer quality service to public. Public sector oil companies should give priority in allotment to the MCs.

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?
