SAS NA­GAR: Res­i­dents of Naya­gaon have ap­proached a per­ma­nent lok adalat de­mand­ing bet­ter in­fra­struc­ture and san­i­ta­tion con­di­tions in their area.

The res­i­dents have filed about 20 com­plaints on poor san­i­tary con­di­tions be­fore the lok adalat at Roop­na­gar.

The com­plaints were filed af­ter one of the aware­ness ses­sions re­gard­ing the scope and func­tion­ing of the per­ma­nent lok adalat, es­tab­lished un­der the state Le­gal Ser­vices Act, was held at Naya­gaon.

This in­for­ma­tion was shared by the chief ju­di­cial mag­is­trate­cum-sec­re­tary of the dis­trict le­gal ser­vices author­ity, Gopal Arora, fol­low­ing an aware­ness sem­i­nar for lawyers in the bar room of the dis­trict courts, SAS Na­gar.

Arora said, “There is not much aware­ness about the scope and func­tion­ing of the le­gal ser­vices. We are hold­ing lit­er­acy camps to cre­ate aware­ness on the op­tions avail­able to res­i­dents to get their griev­ances on pub­lic util­ity ser­vices re­dressed.”

Arora said they or­gan­ised an aware­ness camp at Naya­gaon where res­i­dents com­plained of poor san­i­ta­tion con­di­tions in their area. “The res­i­dents com­plained about the heaps of garbage, which were not be­ing re­moved. The other is­sue that came up was about a non-op­er­a­tional transformer.”

Arora added that vil­lage sarpanches would be roped in to cre­ate aware­ness among the res­i­dents.
