MP Kirron Kher on Friday started a new initiative, 'Sansad Aapke Dwar'. Under this programme, inaugurated at Sector 56, Kirron will be visiting different areas of the city to listen to residents' grievances and later taking up the issues with the UT administration.

During the inaugural drive, the MP visited Government Senior Secondary School and the community centre in Sector 56. At the school, she planted tree saplings and addressed the students. She urged the children to plant more tree saplings and also take care of them. She also met the principal and teachers at the school.

At the community centre, Kirron listened to the residents' problems. They complained that there was no shopping complex in the sector. One of the women present there urged the MP to provide reservation to widows in the allotment of booths.

Complaining about the distance of e-Sampark centre in Palsora, people demanded the opening of a centre in the sector. They also urged the MP to get the government elementary school in the sector upgraded to a senior secondary school. Anganwadi workers requested for higher remuneration and more space to run the centres.

Residents of Palsora Colony asked Kirron to get a fresh survey conducted for rehabilitation as some of them were not present when the survey was conducted for the first time.

Later, the residents' welfare association submitted a memorandum to Kirron Kher. They highlighted problems relating to sewage disposal, shortage of water supply, etc. After listening to their problems, Kirron assured them that all problems highlighted during the interaction would be taken up with the UT officials on priority and sorted out at the earliest.
