‘Stop all il­le­gal con­struc­tions’

HT Estates - - HTESTATES -

Ihave been living in Khirki Ex­ten­sion for sev­eral years and at present I am the vice pres­i­dent of the res­i­dents’ wel­fare as­so­ci­a­tion of J4 block. Out of all the eight bocks, J4 and J3 have the most num­ber of for­eign­ers. We have no prob­lems with any­one as long as we live in peace. But un­for­tu­nately, over the last cou­ple of months, the area wit­nessed some un­to­ward in­ci­dents and late-night scuf­fles.

I do not blame the for­eign­ers as ev­ery so­ci­ety has such prob­lems. The key is to iden­tify th­ese neg­a­tive el­e­ments and take nec­es­sary ac­tion. Which is why I sup­port what the chief min­ster Arvind Ke­jri­wal and law min­is­ter Som­nath Bharti did. It’s be­cause of their ef­fort that the is­sue is be­ing dealt with. But this is not a per­ma­nent so­lu­tion.

The other big issues are ille gal con­struc­tion and lack of civic fa­cil­i­ties. Il­le­gal con­struc­tion is ram­pant here and we want the law min­is­ter Som­nath Bharti to take up this is­sue as well. Due to large- scale en­croach­ment, we don’t have a sin­gle park here. Peo­ple are openly vi­o­lat­ing laws in con­nivance with po­lice and civic of­fi­cials.

We have taken sev­eral ini­tia­tives on our own. For in­stance, we pooled in money and got 16 CCTV cam­eras in­stalled at var­i­ous cru­cial points to keep a check on vis­i­tors.

We hope that the cur­rent gov­ern­ment takes up issues such as wa­ter log­ging, bro­ken roads, wa­ter sup­ply, ab­sence

of sew­er­age sys­tem, etc.
