CONRWA committed to address Gurgaon civic issues

Confederation of NCR Resident Welfare Associations (CONRWA) has expressed its commitment to take up seven issues related to Gurgaon with the authorities including the Centre. The issues, including removal of Kherkidaula toll plaza to eliminate traffic bottlenecks, to connect Nelson Mandela Marg with NH 8, encroachment of service lanes on Delhi- Gurgaon expressway and maintenance and other services of plotted licensed colonies in the pattern of condominiums and cyber city, were discussed during a meeting on Monday.

More than 75 RWA representatives from Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad and Gurgaon participated in the meeting held in DLF Phase-II, Gurgaon under the banner of CONRWA to air their grievances.

Expressing his commitment to address the issues on priority basis, PS Jain, the president of CONRWA said, “These issues deeply hurt the common man. Since some of them, especially removal of the toll plaza and connecting Nelson Mandela Marg with NH 8, are related to the Central Government, we have decided to meet the Surface Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari to resolve them.”

“The issues of traffic jams and removal of Kherkidaula toll plaza need immediate attention to ensure smooth traffic flow on Delhi-Gurgaon expressway. There are many vulnerable sections, such as narrow entry and exit points, responsible for traffic jams,” said RS Rathi, president of Qutub Enclave RWA in DLF city phase 1.

RN Malik, a speaker, drew the attention of the CONRWA towards the need for water dams, reservoirs in Aravallis and rain water harvesting to be made mandatory for every house hold and plot owners.

“Power Dakshin Haryana Bijali Vitran Nigam (DHBVN), the state power distributor, hiked tariff rates after the BJP government took charge in Haryana. It has been a matter of major concern for residents. The state government should roll back the hike and provide the residents with the much need relief at a time when erratic power and water supply is causing enormous inconvenience to them,” said Abhay Poonia, RWA president of Sun City Sector-56, Gurgaon.  

Growing air pollution across NCR cities also came up for discussion during the meeting. In this context, TN Kaul, president of Aardee City RWA, said protection of environment and carrying out plantation at every possible place is the need of the hour.
