Residents living along Sector 67 took up the issues of construction and Demolition (C&D) waste removal, dust generating roads, cleaning of drains, sanitation etc. with newly-elected MLA from Badshahpur, Rakesh Daultabad.
In a meeting with the MLA attended by residents of upscale societies like Park View Spa Next, Ireo Uptown, Ansal Esencia, Victory Valley, M3M Golf Estate and Merlin, representatives of NGOs such as Gurgaon Action Plan and Residents United were present at the meeting on Saturday. They also discussed various issues pertaining to civic and infrastructure development in the sector.
While airing their grievances along with suggestions on all the public issues, they vociferously raised developmental issues.
The residents, along with the MLA and officials of Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) and Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG), inspected the condition of the road along the stretch of Sector 67. They urged the MLA to accelerate the work on several developmental projects in their neighbourhood.
Kush Kochgaway, president of Park View Spa Next Condominium Association, said, “We have explained to the MLA the deteriorating civic amenities to the MLA besides the problems we are facing due to dust pollution, rampant C&D waste dumping, lack of solid waste management, sewer overflowing and many others.
The residents suggested the MLA for formation of a joint team which should include the officials of the civic authorities and the residents to address the issues.
They demanded proper maintenance of green belt area along the main road, regular cleaning of roads and removal of silt deposits, removal of garbage and C&D waste removal, creating an authorized dumping area around the belt, development of pavements, cycle lane, repairing of sewer and storm water line, adequate installation of traffic signals and decongestion of metro station areas etc.
Neelu Sharma, founder president of United Residents, said, “Common area of the entire city is not maintained properly and everyone is passing the buck to other. This is the reason we proposed to have a joint team of officials and residents to achieve the common goal of making the city clean and green.”
She said, " They have shared their vision of Making of Gurgaon initiative and urged the MLA to support them in running a pilot on the stretch along Sector 58 to 67 and set it as role model to be replicated it in other parts of the city."
The whole initiative, she said, was all about bringing everybody together and make the common place look good.
