Nayagaon residents seek better sanitation, approach lok adalat
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.
