For more than a decade now, residents of Sushant Lok I in Gurgaon have been suffering the sector's broken and damaged roads. Despite several reminders, nothing has been done to repair them.

In the recent past, two residents have suffered injuries while using these roads. 

"The roads have been this way for the past 12 years," said Aruna Lal, a resident of the colony. “The authorities have not paid any heed to our complaints."



Residents are wary of walking or driving on the roads.

"I was on my way to a nearby chemist shop in Vyapar Kendra when I twisted my ankle when I stepped on a pothole," said RK Sharma, a resident of Block C. "I have a hairline fracture now.”

Kunal Lal, another resident, said his mother fell and injured herself when she lost balance on one of the potholed roads. "She had to undergo a hip replacement surgery," said Lal.

“We are already working on the takeover process and once it is done, all problems will be addressed.” said V Umashanker, the MCG commissioner.
