Portion of under-construction elevated road on Dwarka e-way collapses, 3 injured
A portion of an under-construction elevated road on the Dwarka Expressway collapsed here on Sunday morning, injuring three workers, officials said.
The Gurgaon Police said the portion collapsed around 7.30 am and three labourers sustained injuries.
They are undergoing treatment at a hospital here, they said.
A team of officials from the National Highways Authority of India, including the regional officer and the project director, also visited the site.
When contacted, NHAI Member (Projects) Manoj Kumar said, "On first impression, it seems to be a case of mechanical failure. It is being investigated".
Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had earlier this month visited the expressway to inspect progress of the 30-kilometre project which is being built at the cost of ₹10,000 crore.
The word 'photography' conjures up images of smiling faces, beautiful landscapes, and much more. While recording videos have become much more common these days, stills have their charm, at least for me. I remember loading our Kodak cameras with rolls before heading out for special occasions, events and holidays. The photographer had to ensure that nobody had been cut out of the frame. Filters, Snapchat, Photoshop and drones are all the rage these days.
The Jalandhar Development Authority on Saturday demolished an illegal colony in Dhadda village under a drive to prevent mushrooming of unauthorised settlements in the district. This is the 10th such colony demolished in the district under the drive this year. Deputy commissioner-cum-chief administrator Ghanshyam Thori said that a notice has been issued against the coloniser of the illegal settlement. No one was settled in the colony yet.
Parking is such a leveller that a small car owner can be in the same predicament as a swanky car owner at any given point in time. In fact, it is those riding the humble two-wheeler who evoke envy as they win the tussle hands down, easily squeezing through narrow spaces. Quite often, I am flummoxed by certain over-smart drivers, who quickly usurp the parking slot I have been manoeuvreing my car into.
Unemployed youths on Saturday blocked the Chandigarh–Bathinda highway near chief minister Bhagwant Mann's residence for several hours, demanding jobs promised by the Aam Aadmi Party before the Punjab assembly elections. Three protesters poured petrol over them and tried to set themselves ablaze but police intervened. One of the protesters, Sandeep Kaur, said, “we are protesting to get what AAP had promised to us before elections and is now running away from its promises.”
World Environment Day is observed on June 5 to encourage sustainable living to ensure the longevity of life on Earth. Earth's ecosystem is becoming unsuitable for the survival of the human race and the proliferation of biodiversity. Environmentalists are now professing the idea of linking humanity with nature. When it was necessary to exploit the Earth, our seers prayed for forgiveness. It is mentioned in the Guru Granth Sahib that air is our Guru.
