No Relief From Water Woes In Faridabad New Colony Extension

Residents of New Colony Extension near the Sadh Sangat Gurdwara are a harried lot. A small stretch of the road in their colony, measuring not over 50 m, got repaired in a period of three months.
The road dug up for laying the sewer lines has not been filled up for over two weeks and the potable municipal water being supplied to them for nearly two months, is contaminated.

"First we had to cross the battered stretch of road for three months. We have been getting foul smelling water for the last two months. Now, two ditches in our colony have been left unattended for over a fortnight.

You know how good the power supply situation in the city is.Perhaps the authorities are waiting for some tragedy to take place to get its act together," said Joginder Singh, secretary, Residents Welfare Association (RWA), New Colony Extension.

Repeated complaints to the municipal officials have borne no fruit, he added.

Echoing similar views, Shanu Luthra, a resident said, "I have not seen hell.

  • Residents Of Sector 9 Await Road Repair Work

    Residents of South East Block of Sector 9 that comprises over 400 houses do not know whom to approach when there is no response to their repeated pleas with the Commissioner, Municipal Corporation of Faridabad (MCF) MS Sehrawat.
    The battered roads in the area have not been repaired for the last many years.

    While 40% of the repair work was carried out after some residents met with Sehrawat on November 12, last year, the rest of the work has been pending for over two months.

    "When a delegation of the residents met the commissioner, the repair work on some of the roads got started in a week. But it was left half way through. The residents met the commissioner again on December 22, last year.

    Following this, the executive engineer concerned assured an early action. But the work is yet to resume," said RP Kaila, a resident.

    Echoing similar views, another resident, SS Oberoi said, "The condition of the roads is so pathetic that it has not only been rendered non-motorable, but pedestrians have to walk along the road and sometimes on the ramps of the houses. The roads in the colony have not been repaired for the last four years. While some of the roads have been repaired, some important roads have not been covered," he said.
