Gurugram: What if you are robbed or you need police assistance for any emergency but approaching the police station is a big task. Residents of new sectors located along the Dwarka Expressway face this problem. There is no proper road connectivity to the Kherki Daula police station.
Unpaved approach road to the police station has been dilapidated for the past years and the condition of the road only worsened after rain. The residents said the road gets muddy and bumpy which is making the drive to the police station tough and even pedestrians cannot walk on the stretch.
The residents have been demanding the construction of this stretch connecting sectors 82 and 83 for a long time but now it is more than necessary as the police station shifted here earlier this year.
The major areas falling under Kherki Daula police station jurisdiction include sectors 77, 78, 79, 80, 81 and 86, Rampura, Kakrola, Bhangrola, Naurangpur, Sikhopur, Sikanderpur, Kherki Daula, Nawada among others.
“Major chunk of the population have already been living here in various housing societies for the past many years but the connecting road paints a sorry picture. This is the only road that connects with the police station and during the rain it becomes very difficult to even drive to the police station for any assistance,” Siddharth Yadav, a resident of Sector 83 said.
“If we have complaints or need police assistance, we have to pass through the swamp. We fail to understand why basic amenities such as roads cannot be provided for the public,” SK Garg, another resident of Sector 83 said.
They have urged the concerned authorities to construct the road to provide relief not only to the residents but also to the police officials who have to bear the brunt on a daily basis.
