No let-up in road digging

A telecom company has started digging up the tiled pavement in Sector 9 of Ambala City for laying wires. Earlier, this year before the outbreak of Covid, a petroleum company had dug up pits for laying of pipelines for gas supply. The mould created by digging is still lying along the roads in the sector and no service of gas has been provided so far. Now, the telecom company has started digging the pavement. As per the law, they cannot break the concrete portion when sufficient space on earthen part is available. The matter had been brought to the notice of Municipal Corporation earlier also, but to no avail. The digging has not only destructed a useful road but hampered convenient movement. The authorities must look into the matter and take action. Gian P Kansal, Ambala City

Dusty road troubles locals

The link road from Narwana to Amargarh village via Frain and further to Samain is extensively damaged and with the passage of time a lot of dust has accumulated on it. The non-stop traffic on this route results in clouds of dust throughout the day and night. Residents and shopkeepers, who reside on both sides of the road, are falling sick due to dust. The authorities should build this road on priority. Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

Stalling Army convoy bad move

This refers to news titled 'Army convoy stalled in Ambala' on September 26. It was strange and disgusting to learn that not only an Army cavalcade was blocked but pro-Khalistan slogans were raised during a protest by farmers in Ambala. Notably, even the senior police officers also failed to persuade the protesters to allow the Army convoy on emergency duty to pass through and it had to take the wrong side of the highway with the police help. No one has the power to stall the Army's movement. Let the MHA take due note thereof and act. SK Gupta, Panchkula

Need for digital screens at bus queue shelters

The Panchkula administration should initiate the process to install digital display boards called passenger information system (PIS) to enable commuters to get real-time information on arrival and departure of buses at bus queue shelters across the city. The pending construction work of the new bus queue shelters should also be completed at the earliest. Ramit Bagga, Panchkula

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?
