Ensure safety during monsoon: Cong forum to MC

- LUDHIANA:

The Congress Workers Forum on Wednesday submitted a memorandum to municipal commission­er MS Jaggi demanding some steps to ensure that no untoward incident took place during the rainy season.

The memorandum that was submitted by Varun Mehta and Sunil Puri Shammi stated that the MC should also take steps to prevent outbreak of diseases during the monsoon.

“During this hot weather, the MC should ensure that water is supplied to residents and an operator should be present at the water plant,” the memo- randum said.

It stated that there was loss of property every year in areas lying along Buddha Nullah in the city. “Steps should be taken to ensure that the areas close to Buddha Nullah are not affected with the water overflowin­g from the nullah,” it added.

Other points in the memorandum included fogging during the monsoon.

“Encroachme­nts in Chaura Bazaar and Ghumar Mandi market should be removed as soon as possible as this has caused traffic chaos in these areas,” the memorandum stated.
