The members of Chandigarh Housing Board Modern Complex Flats Residents' Welfare Association have resolved to get proactive in view of “inaction by municipal corporation” on civic problems like bad roads, poor lighting, and unhygienic conditions prevailing in the Modern Housing Complex.


The decision was taken in the governing body meeting of the association on Wednesday.

Col Gursewak Singh (retd), secretary, public relations, Chandigarh Housing Board Modern Complex Flats Residents' Welfare Association, said since the assurances by the MC officials had so far not shown any results, the association had decided to seek intervention of the local member of Parliament, so as to urgently attend to the issues being faced by 2,500 families living in the CHB flats.

The association expressed regret that despite senior officials of the municipal corporation being taken around by the association's president, and shown the shabby conditions of the area about two months back, nothing had been done to alleviate the suffering of the residents.

The association appreciated the Chandigarh Police for its drive against wrong parking. At the same time, the association decided to tackle the menace of wrong parking of vehicles especially on pavements and turning points causing great inconvenience to pedestrians and also increasing the risk of accidents.

Foot-in-mouth disease among humans

The foot-and-mouth disease afflicts cows, buffaloes and sheep and causes them to break out in acute fever and blisters and could be fatal. Whereas the foot-in-mouth disease is known to attack us humans as we often shoot off our mouths, resulting in embarrassment. One may think that the tendency to say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, takes some doing, but actually it is a common malady and afflicts us all, at some time or the other. Writes Pallavi Singh.
