Illegal construction must be stopped at initial stage

General public of the city are angry with the government that the DTP or municipal authorities concerned are arbitrarily demolishing houses or shops in various illegal colonies of the city, bypassing the rules and the law. it is also not proper for the authorities to demolish some newly constructed shops as per their choice, when all these shops or showrooms were constructed illegally. There should be no discrimination by the authorities at the time of demolition of illegal construction. Illegal construction should be stopped at the initial stage and punitive action should be taken against them if the authorities concerned do not do so. — Shakti Singh, Karnal

Petty politics at Ambala civic body meeting

It pains me to read the news item "Only HJP members attend first Ambala civic body meeting" in The Tribune February 19, page 4. Civic bodies of cities of Northern India are inflicted by petty politics, mud-slinging and groupism. Most of the time elected councillors of municipal bodies fight with each other and do not work to uplift of their city. This unhealthy trend was visible in the first-ever meeting of the newly elected Ambala Municipal Corporation as only member of Haryana Jan Chetna Party attended it and councillors of all other parties-BJP, Congress and Haryana Democratic Front abstained from the meeting on the pretext of procedural snag. Newly elected members of Ambala municipal corporation should work together to remove the problems the city faces instead of indulging in petty politics. — Dr Vinay Kumar Malhotra, Ambala Cantt

Tilted poles pose danger to commuters

Badly tilted poles bearing numbers 28 and 29on the NH-73 (near Sector 7-8-17-18 roundabout) in Panchkula speaks volumes about the impending danger for the passing vehicles here. Intriguingly, it has failed to attract the attention of the city's Electricity Department.

The department should take note of it and take action at once. — SK Gupta, Panchkula

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?
