Gandhi Nagar parks flourish, Nai Basti Vijay park vanishes
Shame for Floriculture Deptt

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 8: The discriminatory attitude of the Floriculture department seems to be unstoppable, as Gandhi Nagar parks are given much attention than the parks meant for people of lesser God.
The Nai Basti Vijay park is one such example of the department's apathy where the park is developed just for its sake. No park like facilities have been placed there. There is nothing like park as area has been covered with power distribution transformers and a PHE tube well. "There are seven power distribution transformers installed in the park which give the park a look of power station. These transformers pose serious threat to the lives of the people particularly the children who mostly play around these transformers. Moreover, a tube well has been constructed in park which has lost its beauty," said Deepak Sharma, a resident of Nai Basti. He further informed that the park was ruined by the PHE department during the construction of tube well during 2012-13 as the boundary wall was broken to make the entry of vehicles for building materials, which turned the park into dilapidated condition. Although, Floriculture department had constructed pathway nearly three month ago, no flower plants have grown in the park. It is very shocking that park is being used for other purposes like installation of transformers, tube well etc. which has snatched the beauty of this park. Even though there is a water fountain in the center of park, it has been lying defunct for past many years.
Another resident of the area, Dinesh informed that there are no light facilities in the park due to which people can't walk in the evening. A drinking water tank was constructed but it remains dry due to no supply of water. The most embarrassing thing which people visiting the park have to face is that some people have started using the place of defunct water tank as toilet facility which has made the ambience of park most unpleasant particularly for women, said Dinesh.
Some unscrupulous elements consume liquor in the night, and despite many complaints registered with the police, this illegal activity goes unabated. There is a dire need of deployment of security man in park to check the immoral activities and a permanent gardener for its care, said Baffi Gurung, a house wife who visits the park along with other women.
