After the much-awaited corporation elections are over, the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) is still to decide on its logo, despite having received 177 entries from India and abroad on its website. No initiative has been taken by MCG to choose a logo.

The 'propose a logo' campaign was launched last year by MCG. "We work for the people. We want them to have maximum participation in the corporation and decide the logo it," former MCG commissioner RK Khullar had said at the time of the campaign's launch.

The logos received on the website were to be shortlisted by MCG and one of the 177 entries was to be made the logo. "The corporation has just been elected. There is no hurry to make the logo. It will be done after some time," said MCG commissioner Sudhir Rajpal.

People are also allowed to vote for the best logo and rate it between a scale of one to five, the latter being the highest.

The logo by Krishna Vashistha received the highest votes (525), closely followed by Mamta Dwivedi's creation, who got 525 votes.

While Gurgaon residents eagerly await for the MCG to present its logo, it is not taking any initiative towards the same.

During the elections, as many as 110 senior police officials, 279 head constables, 1,610 constables and 459 home guards were deployed at various polling booths.

Out of a total of 459 booths in 35 wards of the MCG, 78 booths were declared hyper-sensitive and 129 sensitive.

Three constables were also deployed at each hyper-sensitive booth while one head constable and two constables were manning each of the sensitive booths.

No doubt, it was an important election, and this new logo is needed to justify the new body.
