Inviting trouble

THE photograph captured outside a water boosting station, across Sector 8 market area, in Panchkula, speaks volumes about lurking danger at the electricity junction installed at a streetlight pole. One really wonders whether the same should not have been placed inside a closed box. Sadly, the city's electricity department seems to have some other ideas on the matter. The authorities must look into the issue before it results into any mishap. SK Gupta, Panchkula

Transformer, a lurking danger

A transformer put up by the power department midst a crowded market in Narwana causes a lot of inconvenience to commuters. It has blocked a lot of space in the area, which could otherwise be used to ease traffic flow on already narrow road with traffic moving on both the sides. Sometimes the wires connecting the transformer also catch a spark which can be a cause of serious mishap and is a threat to adjoining shops and vehicles parked nearby. The authorities must look into the issue and make arrangements to relocate it. Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

Make state disabled-friendly

NO attention has ever been paid to make public places in the state disabled-friendly. The state government must endeavour to make all government/public offices, roads, pedestrian paths, parks, tourist and historical places, hospitals, police stations, fuel stations, Haryana tourism hotels/ restaurants, banks, post-offices, factories and markets etc handicap-friendly. Right equipment and aids are important for independent living. The same will be highly useful for white/blue/pink collared differently-abled people who face innumerable hardships in their day-to-day life. Ramit Ritu Bagga, Panchkula

Covid contained in Gurugram

IT is very pleasing and satisfying to observe that two days back only 35 fresh cases of Covid were reported, which is the lowest figure in the past few months. It proves that the people of Gurugram district are following the precautionary rules and regulations strictly. Earlier the condition was alarming and fearful. I appreciate the efforts made by people and the administration jointly to check the spread of virus. Subhash C Taneja, Gurugram

High security registration plates causing discomfort

Earlier number plates of vehicles were changed citing that the newer ones were high security plates and now fuel colour coding of vehicles has also been made mandatory along with certain stickers. All vehicle owners are also made to pay for these apart from the discomfort that is caused by these processes. But, do all these changes provide any better security? Have the new provisions resulted in decreased number of vehicular thefts or increased the number of recoveries of stolen vehicles by the police? If the answer to both of these questions is no, then these provisions are either a question mark over the efficiency of our policing system or the policy itself needs to be abandoned. Sandeep Chaudhri, Karnal

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?
