Gurugram: Following several complaints about the poor condition of the road connecting Vipul Lavanya, the newly-elected Pataudi MLA, Satya Prakash Jrawta, on Friday, visited the residential society adjacent to the road in Sector 81 with an assurance to undertake repair work once the construction ban is lifted.
In the absence of 24-meter road in the vicinity, the Revenue Road has become a lifeline for hundreds of families residing in the society. The dilapidated state of the lone means of communication makes it difficult for them to commute.
The residents met the MLA last week and apprised him of the deplorable condition of the Revenue Road. They requested him to get it repaired and streetlights installed.

Shibashish Rudra, RWA member of Vipul Lavanya, said, "We are happy to see that some development is taking place on the ground to resolve our long-pending issues. The MLA said he would request the Public Work Department (PWD) to takeover the road. The work on streetlight has already begun in the vicinity."
The road falls partly under the panchayat of Village Nakhrola and partly under Village Nawada Fathepur. The locals too are suffering on account of the unlit potholed 10-meter wide road. Frequent movement of heavy vehicles leads to wear-and-tear even as there has been no maintenance for the last four years.
The visit and assurance of the local MLA brought some cheers to the residents. They are now hopeful that things would get better following his intervention.
Sunil Yadav, a RWA member, said, "Road connectivity and safety and security has become a major concern for us. There have been multiple instances of theft and snatching on this stretch in the past. We are hoping of some positive outcome from the proactive leadership of the MLA."
In September, the residents themselves filled the potholes on the road which had remained unattended by the authorities for four years.
"Since nobody was coming forward to resolve the issue, we were left with no option but to repair the road on our own. But, it was not a permanent solution to the problem. We need proper communication for our sector,” Shibashish lamented.
