In a meeting organised yesterday, BSES officials listened to the grievances of the people, assuring prompt action. More such meetings are on the anvil for the rest of Dwarka.
In a meeting organised yesterday evening, community members of Dwarka and Palam expressed their grievances related to electricity to BSES officials. The meeting was organised by the electrical department of BSES at Sector 9 for Palam division comprising sectors such as 6, 7, 8, 9, 22 and 23.
People from various sectors and societies of Dwarka and Palam area were present in the meeting, and took up their issues with the higher officials of BSES. Also present at the meeting were members of Federation of Cooperative Group Housing Societies (CGHS), Dwarka. From BSES, deputy general manager RK Vij; vice-president Navneet Arora; deputy general manager SK Dagar and others were present.
Most of the problems raised by the people were related to streetlights and the billing system. General secretary of Federation of CGHS, Sudha Sinha, raised the issue of dark stretches in the area. She also raised the matter of subsidy to CGHS societies and billing system.
She expressed her concerns regarding how the meeting was conducted. Talking with City Spidey, she said, “I am completely dissatisfied with the approach of the meeting. We reached the meeting and only then got to know that the only area under discussion was Palam division. We were representing whole of Dwarka. I think BSES should clearly inform people about the agenda of such meetings.”
The meeting was attended by representatives of various RWAs and managements of the societies of the sub-city. Amit Kumar from Bahawalpur Society raised the matter of maintenance of infrastructure. Anil Parashar from Sri Agrasen Apartments raised the issue of poles bang in the middle of roads. He asked the officials to remove such poles as soon as possible. An eminent RTI activist and resident of Sector 16B, Ramesh Mumukshu, raised the subject of investments in defunct and dilapidated electrical infrastructure.
Dwarka’s residents also raised the issue of individual meters, which have already been started by BSES.
BSES officials responded to the issues and assured that they would be resolved as soon as possible. Dagar told City Spidey, “The meeting was successful and soon meetings for rest of the Dwarka will also be held. We assured the people that their issues will be taken up on priority, and resolved.”
