Community policing and the menace of commercial vehicles plying on service lanes were some key issues that were discussed during the course of the interaction that happened at Sector 9.
On Friday, Special Commissioner of Delhi Police, Satish Golcha interacted with RWAs (Residents Welfare Associations) and MWAs (Market Welfare Associations) of various sectors and societies across Dwarka. The interaction happened at Sector 9 Pocket 2, where Golcha had come to launch the neighbourhood watch scheme, Prahari.
RWA members were urged to cooperate in the scheme, which is essentially a community policing scheme. Two guards of the residential society at Pocket 2 (sector 9) were chosen to impart training. Golcha also asked the residents and RWA representatives to provide suggestions that would translate to a safe and robust civic framework for the subcity.
During the course of the interaction, several questions/issues related to Sector 9 and other parts of the city were raised.
MK Singh, general secretary of Federation of RWAs of Sector 9 raised the issue of vehicle towing in the market areas. He pointed out that sometimes vehicles are towed when the owners are in the midst of some emergency. “There must be some provision to assist such people,” Singh reiterated.
KS Bhati, president of Federation of RWAs of Sector 9 highlighted the issue of commercial vehicles plying in service lanes. “This is dangerous for the residents living in societies along the service lanes,” he stated.
Residents of Sector 7 raised the issues related to open drinking and presence of liquor shops in the residential area.
Talking to City Spidey, AK Parashar, a resident of Sri Agrasen Apartments, Sector 7 said, “This was a good initiative taken by the Dwarka District Police. It has made us feel that the trends of policing are changing for the better. Also we feel like an integral part of the process.”
