Bird flu outbreak should be contained

A central team visiting Barwala confirmed the presence of avian influenza in the region recently. As a precautionary measure, people must take extra care while they consume meat and eggs. Poultry products should rather be avoided these days because of the incidents of bird flu. The administration must also take crucial steps needed to check the spread of the flu. Amid the ongoing pandemic, people too must act responsibly and follow the guidelines issued by the government.

Garbage dumped at vacant plots

DESPITE the sanitation drive launched by the municipal corporation in Hisar town, the roads and open spaces in Sector 16 and 17 are in pitiable condition. Vacant plots are filled with garbage and wild growth has worsened the situation. The entire locality developed by the Haryana Shahri Vikas Pradhikaran seems to be an abandoned one as nobody takes care of sanitation, cleanliness and civic facilities here. Though, local residents had been voicing their concerns and had raised the matter with concerned officials several times, there has not been any solution and the problem remains unaddressed. I had also urged safai karamcharis to collect garbage from vacant plots but to no avail. Later, I submitted a complaint to the MC authorities along with a photograph and GPS location of the site and surprisingly, I got an SMS from the MC office that garbage had been removed from the spot. There are around 80-90 similar vacant plots which are being used as garbage dump sites in these two sectors and the authorities must get it removed too.

Need to impose heavy penalty on violators

Poullution of water bodies is one of the major problems that we face these days and can only be curbed by the government's interference. The state government must issue strict guidelines and impose heavy penalty on defaulters for polluting water bodies. Strict laws should be imposed and culprits should be strictly punished. Wrong-doers should be aware of the consequences of this heinous crime if they don't follow the government's rules and regulations. The people of our state/country must know their responsibility and make efforts to improve the situation of filthy ponds, canals, rivers and polluted beaches etc. Nobody is bothered to keep water bodies pure and clean. In fact, it seems they have become habitual to throw trash into the water bodies. The government had launched river cleaning programmes such as Namami Gange, worth thousands of crore, but these can't be a success without people's cooperation. Like most of the other developed nations, we too must make effective measures to make our water bodies clean.

HSVP plots lying vacant

Several plots in Sector 20, HSVP (HUDA), Kaithal, which were earmarked for public facilities by the administration have not been used for the desired purpose even after decades. At some places wild grass and bushes have grown and at other places the residents living in the vicinity of the community centre have started dumping wastes in such vacant plots. All this had been happening due to indifferent attitude of the concerned HSVP staff. Not only this, the sites reserved for commercial purpose in this Sector are also yet to be auctioned thus leaving the same in bad shape. The HUDA residents are at loss to find the authorities not concerned over such problems and demand appropriate measures to improve the situation.

Crime on rise in Narwana

THE incidents of thefts have become common in Narwana. Recently, a family in Subhash Nagar, went to a nearby temple and returned after around an hour, only to discover that their valuables worth Rs10 lakh were stolen. Though, the incident was captured in CCTV camera but soon it will be forgotten as a routine crime. The police must increase patrolling and ensure safety of residents.
