IT IS one of the biggest wards in the city and law and order is its biggest problem. The routine ones, like water drainage and all, are there to make things worse.
The area is set to have Lohia Law Institute, a 300-bed hospital, already has a degree college and a number of leading schools. It also has posh localities of Sector –G, Sector-H and Sector D-1 to claim a VVIP status. But, it gets 6 out of 10.
Rajesh Agarwal, resident of sector G, says, “We have to walk in knee deep water during the rainy season. The drains go nowhere they are just rotating within the locality resulting in water overflow after rain.”
Nirmala, a resident of Sector H, says, “ A few days back a manager of a renowned college was shot dead in front of school. My son studies in the same college. He was scared, now he refuses to walk alone on roads.”
Abhinav Yadav, a resident of LDA colony, says, “Water is supplied for only one hour in a day. We have complained a number of times to the officials of the LDA. But, the authorities have done nothing. ”
Neelanjali Singh says, “We are feeling insecured after the shootout incident in front of a school, children are scared to go to school. Something must be done to restore the confidence of the people back in the law.”
The corporator of the ward Govind Pandey says, “I have always tried to solve the water problem of the area. Recently my efforts have yielded results. The Jal Sansthan has taken over the water supply of sector G and Sector H. Now the residents would be getting better water supply, regarding the drainage there are some areas in the ward which are developed 3 feet below the level of road, which results in the water-logging after every rainfall.”
Regarding the law and order problem he says, “It’s for the administration to stop the crime.”
