Mass contact programme of Munish Gupta reaches Nanak Nagar Sectors 6,7 & 8
People heap praise on Munish for his decision to contest elections

Early Times Report

JAMMU, July 8: In continuation to his mass contact programme ahead of next assembly polls, Editor Early Times, Munish Gupta, who would be contesting the elections as an independent candidate, today reached Sectors 6, 7, 8 of Nanak Nagar locality and its adjoining areas.
During his visit, a large number of residents of the area conveyed their best wishes to Munish Gupta and supported his decision to contest the forthcoming assembly election.
"We see a ray of hope in you. Your approach to have firsthand knowledge of the problems being faced by the people is worth appreciation while reaching out to cross section of the society is also commendable," said residents of Sector-6, 7 and 8.
While interacting with Munish Gupta, the inhabitants expressed their resentment over the continuous neglect they are facing adding that their locality is in complete chaos as most of the lanes are in dilapidated conditions having pot holes, drainage system is in disarray as there is problem of blockage due to garbage accumulation while power curtailments and fluctuation are order of the day.
Some of the residents without any inhibition told Munish that the locality is fast turning into a major hub of drugs menace as the addiction among youth is catching up at a rapid pace as there is hardly any check and balance over such anti-social activities.
"The area is under grip of drugs menace as the anti-social elements have no fear of law.
The drug addicts roam here and there in the locality and consume drugs openly. We are so much afraid of the drug hazard that we do not allow our children to go out of houses. Something major needs to be done at an earliest otherwise the future generations would get spoiled," said Suresh Kumari of Sector 8, Nanak Nagar.
Amrik Singh of Sector 6, Nanak Nagar highlighted the problem of low voltage and constant fluctuation adding that the electrical appliances are getting affected due to the problem while R K Raina and Darshan Kumar Khajuria raised almost the similar issue.
"We are experiencing frequent power outages even as the area is duly metered for the last six years. The lanes are also in poor condition while the low pressure of water being supplied is also a major concern for the residents," said Raina and Khajuria.
Whereas Shashi Bala, a widow, of Sector-6 while narrating her tale of woes said that she is up against unending miseries as her husband and son passed away in succession due to which she is left all alone adding that in order to survive she applied for the widow pension but despite repeated attempts she is unable to get her legitimate right.
In another instance of official apathy with regard to enrolment for the widow pension, another female resident, Charanjeet Kour, with a heavy heart informed that she submitted requisite form for the widow pension not once but on seven occasions during more than two decades but she is still waiting for her name to be figured among beneficiaries.
"The linger on period to get enrolled as a beneficiary for widow pension will complete twenty six long years on coming July 20. It seems that there is no end to my agonies," said Charanjeet Kour.
Another resident Darshana said that our lane should be repaired as it is in a rundown condition for the last couple of years while Pawandeep Kour pointed towards heaps of garbage and filth in a vacant plot in front of her house adding that open dumping of waste is nothing but a breeding ground for fleas and mosquitoes which spread communicable diseases.
"The scattered filth and garbage is an open invitation to diseases like dengue which breaks out frequently, however, nobody bothers for the wellbeing of the residents," Pawandeep Kour said.
Radha Rani and Sunamika Gandhi demanded that the locality should be well equipped with street lights as the safety of the inhabitants remain at risk in absence of proper lighting in lanes.
Sukhbir Singh said that water supply pipe to his house has developed leakage for over a week and the matter was brought to the notice of the authorities concerned but no action has been initiated so far.
Dr Hitesh, a resident of the area, said that the problem of stray dogs is a big nuisance which needs to be tackled effectively so that any threat perception of dog biting can be prevented. While another resident Harjeet Singh said that nobody comes to listen to their grievances adding that the political class show their faces only when elections are round the corner and afterwards they never turn up.
"The lanes and drains are in shambles. Drains are not cleared on regular basis while they are also not fitted with iron covers due to which the children while playing in streets often fell into them," said Harjeet Singh.
