Civic body building in bad shape : The Tribune India

The Kaithal Municipal Council building constructed with expenses worth crores about 10-years back has started deteriorating. Due to indifferent attitude of officials responsible for maintenance of this building, a huge damage is likely to be caused to the structure. Wild grass and trees have started growing at the roof of the building and a peepal tree has covered the solar panel system installed at the rooftop but surprisingly, no one seems to be bothered to ensure safety of the public building. The main pillar at the entry gates too is damaged and cracks at the floor and walls are also visible. Not only this, the plaster on walls has started withering away and toilets for staff and public are stinking and in bad shape. If immediate steps are not taken for the upkeep of the building it may collapse in the near future. The officials concerned should take a note of it and get the needful done immediately. Satish Seth, Kaithal

Need to focus on infrastructure

The accompanying photograph captured on the main dividing road between Sector 7 and 18, near the entry gate to Panchkula, speaks volumes about the inside story. Mind you, this ‘welcoming’ entry gate to the city, installed recently close to the Chandigarh Housing Board Chowk, had cost several lakhs to the city administration. One really wonders whether the erection of such an ‘ornamental’ gate alone would justify the same amidst such ill-maintained/potholed stretches on both sides of the widely traversed road? SK Gupta, Panckula

Trees branches tangle with wires

This is a picture of an HSVP park in Housing Board Colony of Sector 13, Kurukshetra. Overgrown trees leaning over the road and tangling with electricity wires are a common scene here. These could damage the wires and can also cause some mishaps. To mitigate this safety risk, the authorities must get these trees trimmed. We hope that the civic body will take a note of the situation and get the needful done immediately before it results into an accident or damage. Anupama Saini, Kurukshetra

Slip road constructed at ITI chowk

My letter in this column with a heading of “Slip road at ITI Chowk needed” was published on February12, 2020. Following this, the NHAI has got a slip road constructed there which became operative now, thus giving a relief to thousands of commuters who use this road daily. Anyone coming from Kunjpura Road and approaching to NH-44 for going to Delhi usually used to get stuck in heavy traffic from Convent School to ITI Chowk. The situation used to worsen during school hours. It is due to The Tribune only that my voice was raised which otherwise was of thousands of residents of Sector 9, Karnal and adjoining area. Hats off to The Tribune. Rajiv Anand, XEN, UHBVN, 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?
