MG Road residents demand strong action to resolve their issues

In an interaction with the authorities and media, the residents of various societies located at Gurgaon's MG Road demanded solutions to issues faced by them. 

The most common issues of the area have been the presence of hawkers on service lanes, prostitution, absence of a green belt, illegal parking and bad roads.

Responding to the issues of the residents were Inspector Anil Kumar, Inspector Vikas and Inspector Sudeep Singh. Subir Chauhan from the Gurugram Administration was also present to interact with the residents.

"The issues have been discussed in detail and strong steps need to be taken to provide societies with a comfortable living," said Rajeev Sinha, President Essel Tower. 

"There are a huge number of vehicles parked on service lanes and sometimes we have to fight to keep the gates clear of vehicles," said a guard from Heritage City condominium. 

Adding to this, Gaurav Wahi, another resident, said, "The presence of hawkers create chaos and they have encroached half the service lanes. In case an ambulance has to travel, the service lanes, in their present state, cannot afford an easy passage." 

Addressing the issues, Inspector Anil Kumar said, "We have four check points on MG Road and drunken driving is kept in perfect check. As far as traffic is concerned, we do conduct drives but we will also talk to Gurugram Nagar Nigam to find a better solution."

Inspector Sudeep Singh, SHO, DLF Phase II, added, "We have three additional check points and in the last six months, crime against women has been under control."                                                          

It remains to be seen how soon changes to address the issues of the residents are finally put in place.
