Public facilities in poor shape

Panchkula city seems to be losing on various counts nowadays. What else could explain the prevalence of several tilted electricity poles on the NH-73, non-functional traffic lights at nearby Sector 7-8-17-18 roundabout, abundance of stray cattle in its close vicinity and heaps of several open garbage dumps. Notably, shopkeepers and roadside vendors have encroached upon public places in most of the sector markets. Besides this, a few residents have also conveniently encroached upon the adjoining 'public spaces'. Haphazard parking of the vehicles adds to the chaos. The administration needs to the occasion for some obvious reasons. —SK Gupta, Panchkula

Damaged roads pose threat

Commuting on the Circle 3 road in Sector 86 of New Gurugram has turned out to be a harrowing experience for residents. The road is full of potholes. Meanwhile, the road under the Rampura flyover on the NH-48 is also in a similar condition. However, it seems the authorities are apathetic towards the plight of the residents. The area is posh, but the condition of the infrastructure is poor. The officers concerned need to wake up from the deep slumber and act in this regard. —Niti Sood, Gurugram

Delay in benefits to martyrs' kin unacceptable

This is in reference to a news report published The Tribune columns on November 21 regarding 'a widow of a CRPF jawan waiting for the entitled benefits for 18 years'. It has put a serious question mark on the administrative machinery, which is supposed to take care of the welfare of the martyrs. In this digital age, when most of the documentations and other administrative works are processed online, such prolonged delays are highly condemnable and not acceptable. The administration and the District Soldiers' Board must be held accountable for processing the cases of death benefits entitled to the bravehearts. The Centre and the state government should issue strict guidelines to settle all benefits at the earliest so that the families of the martyrs do not face any harassment or financial hardships. —Ravi Bhushan, Kurukshetra
