The newly elected municipal councillors met the public for the first time after election and discussed their vision for Haryana 2020.
Citizen groups, stakeholders, RWA members, and representatives of builders and developers in the city attended the meeting organised by Real Estate Development Council (Redco), Haryana, at City Club.
Seven councillors were invited, but only four could register their participation. Sunita Yadav, a councillor, sent her husband Anil Yadav to attend the meeting. The councillors of ward no 29, 30,31, 32, 33, 34 and 35 were invited.
Of these, Nisha Singh (ward no 26), Mahesh Dayma (ward no 32), Sunder Singh (ward no 35) and Anil Yadav (ward no 33) were present. The candidates talked about making the city a world-class business capital by 2020. They also sought the views of people who were present.
“There is not one colony in Gurgaon, which we can address as a ‘model’ area. Every condominium has some issue with the builder, which need to be sorted,” Yadav said.
While residents highlighted the lack of basic civic infrastructure, Nisha Singh said the first thing on her agenda was to ensure basic facilities in the city.
Redco and RWAs presented their vision regarding Haryana 2020 to the councillors. It addresses issues like lack of infrastructure, city hygiene, traffic congestion, public transport, environment, e-governance, apart from law and order.
The councillors and residents have decided hold similar meetings in June.
