Overflowing drain irks commuters

A part of drain opposite Sethi Market on NH-65 on Ambala-Hisar road in Ambala City, is overflowing due to the negligence of contractor for the last six months. As a result, sewerage and dirty water remains on the stretch of about 200-metre road. It irks the commuters and shopkeepers when the dirty water is showered over them by the passing vehicles, due to the accumulation of water on the road. Despite repeated requests to the municipal corporation authorities, the problem remains unchanged. The authorities must take a note of it and get the needful done immediately to resolve the problem at the earliest in interest of common people. Daljit Singh Bhatia, Ambala City

Quality work should be ensured

THE work on laying of interlocking tiles in the town is at full swing these days but attention should be paid on maintaining same level of the streets and drains. The accompanying photograph shows how underground pipes are being laid to replace open drains but the quality of work being done is poor thus leaving the streets in bad shape. Many streets are in similar condition due to the same reason. For the sake of this project, several well laid roads too are being dug up which is irking the residents. The concerned authorities must ensure quality work so that residents could be benefitted. Many residents want these pipes to be removed as they remain choked with garbage and keep on overflowing. Firstly, well laid roads are broken, then new pipelines are laid, followed by other expenses, the authorities must at least ensure quality work to prevent any further waste of public money. All such projects must be monitored to prevent poor work. Dr Ravinder Kwatra, Shahabad Markanda

R-Day blotted by anti-social elements

THE Republic Day is a national day which unfortunately was blotted by some anti-social elements. The R-Day parade filled us with pride and patriotism but soon the people were devastated on seeing the violent face of the farmers' tractor parade in the Capital. It is evident that anti-social elements had hijacked the farmers' agitation. This seems to be a conspiracy to change the face of the protest. Occupying the Red Fort by these elements is not a good move and has defaced the march. Disturbing the law and order should not be allowed and people must act responsibly. Dr Ravinder Kwatra, Shahabad Markanda

Laxity by Ambala MC annoys residents

THE attached picture has been clicked near H No. 530, Sector 9, Ambala City. The concerned department had carried out repairs of leaking pipelines but left the wet mould of soil causing inconvenience to residents. It is hard to understand as to why the senior and officials do not monitor the work and take a cognisance of the work left undone. We hope the concerned authorities will take a note of the issue and get the needful done immediately. Gian P Kansal, Ambala City

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?
