Citadel - - PUNEITES SPEAK -

As we all are well aware, Pune unic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion gov­erns Pune, aha­rash­tra’s sec­ond largest city, whereas the Pim­pri Chinch­wad unic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion looks af­ter the wel­fare of the towns Pim­pri, Chinch­wad, Akurdi and Bhosari. Both are in charge of the civic needs and in­fra­struc­ture of the me­trop­o­lis. Yet, is this re­ally work­ing out when it comes to the most ba­sic fa­cil­ity we need be­fore mon­soon hits us hard re­paired roads and re­duced pot­holes, mak­ing these roads smooth and safe enough for us to drive on them with­out be­ing in­jured? If you ask me, it’s uite a de­bat­able topic. n one hand, af­ter tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the cur­rent sce­nario, ex­press high­ways are def­i­nitely bet­ter main­tained than lanes and by­ways. Yet, stay hope­ful, for those who lose tem­per on a daily ba­sis can now make use of the -hour pot­hole helpline started by the P C to reg­is­ter citi ens’ com­plaints about roads across the city. The com­plaints are for­warded to the ward of­fi­cers and the prob­lem is solved in a day or two! Yet on the other hand, though the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties claim that road re­pairs amount­ing to crores of ru­pees have been com­pleted well in time be­fore mon­soons, an un­count­able num­ber of grot­tos still re­main ne­glected. All in all, the only thing we fel­low citi ens can do is, keep on hoping that a ma­jor­ity of these roads and the pot­holes they con­sist of will be fixed in the com­ing days for en­sur­ing bet­ter con­ve­nience and safety.
