While the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) is all set to get its mayor in a week’s time, residents of sectors that are under Huda and private developers are still confused as to who will represent them.
They are unsure whether MCG, the soon-to-be elected mayor or Huda (Haryana Urban Development Authority) will be responsible to provide solutions to their problems.
Or, all of them will simply pass the buck with no clear guidelines available?
As many sectors and private colonies have not been transferred to MCG yet, residents have been left in the lurch. They have no clue as to who will address their long list of grievances.
DD Sharma, a resident of Sushant Lok Phase 2, said, “Our areas have not been transferred to MCG and we stay in a developers’ township. There are many pending cases with Huda and they do not know what will happen to them.”
Residents suggest that the government should allow a provision under the law that will put all authorities such as Huda under the MCG mayor.
This will help residents as they will know who to approach in times of crisis.
Sanjeev K Saxena, a resident of Sector 45, said, “Now that residents have chosen somebody to fight for them, they should be given some amount of responsibility towards their ward. If our sectors have not been transferred and our representatives cannot work for us, then what was the point of participating in the elections.”
