Actively take up fogging to curb mosquito menace

CHANGE in season has set in and the administration must actively take up fogging to curb mosquito menace in Panchkula urban estate. Fatehpur and Kundi in Sector 20, where animals are domesticated, need fogging to be repeated weekly till it gets too chilly for mosquitoes to survive. Lalit Bharadwaj, Panchkula

Govt websites must be updated with latest data

TO write an article on development in Kurukshetra on the occasion of Haryana Day, since it came into existence as a district in 1973, I checked website which conceals more than it reveals. Sadly, the email id of the Deputy Commissioner and the ADC mentioned therein is out dated. The claim of the state as ahead of others in-terms of e-governance stands falsified as there is no data available on the performance indicators of the economy which deserves attention. To ensure transparency, we need updated websites with latest data. Prof MM Goel, Kurukshetra

Spurious desi ghee ups health risk

THERE must be around hundreds of illegal factories near Delhi in districts such as Faridabad, Rohtak, Sonepat and Bahadurgarh which manufacture spurious desi ghee, to fulfill the increasing demand of ghee, during the ongoing festive season. They use packing material of reputed brands and sell the stuff at half the rate as compared to genuine product. It smells and looks similar to the real product but is made with harmful oils mixed with artificial essence and colours which is harmful to health. The administration too is aware of the practice and must act immediately for a healthier society. Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

No end to stray animal menace

STRAY animals have become a major problem, causing traffic snarls and accidents in the town. Cow is worshipped as mother according to the Hindu faith, but there is not any street where cows can't be found scrounging garbage. It also hurts our sacred feelings. Authorities should make proper arrangements for cowsheds, especially in winters. Stray dogs too can be seen roaming in streets and causing inconvenience to residents. Many incidents of dog bite had been reported but no steps had been made to check such instances. The municipal authorities should take a note of this and get the needful done immediately. Dr Ravinder Kwatra, Shahabad Markanda

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?
