After the municipal polls, residents with their elected representatives in the civic body expect better facilities and many positive changes in their lives.
People of Gurgaon have got their much-needed representation in all 35 wards of the MCG on Sunday.
Lalit Mohan Joshi, a resident of Saraswati Vihar, cast his vote with a belief that change would take place with the emergence of people's representatives.
“Everyone in Gurgaon has almost similar problems such as scarcity of power, water and broken roads, encroachments. Now after the elections, there would be someone who, authoritatively, can voice our concerns with the higher-ups,” said Joshi.
Vipin Sachdeva, a resident of DLF phase 4, is hopeful that the councillors would give a shot in the arm in the rapidly growing city.
“By casting my vote, I have given contribution to Gurgaon's development,” said Sachdeva.
Deepak Sahni, a resident of Samanyay Apartments, Sector 56, is also equally optimistic.
“They (councillors) can help us get basic amenities such as better roads, water, power and improved sewage system. Though, only time will tell whether they work or disappear like other politicians.”
