CIVIC NEGLECT OF MUNICIPAL CORPORATION OF DELHI (MCD)
- CHIEF ENGINEER, MCD, ROHINI, DELHI-110085
CIVIC NEGLECT BY THE MUNICIPAL CORPORATION OF DELHI (MCD)
Madhuban Chowk is a prominent landmark in North-West Delhi dotted by prestigious Management Institutes, a string of reputed Public Schools like Bal Bharati, Technia, Raja Ramamohan Roy and Saroj and Mahavir Heart Institutes/Charitable Hospitals. Fire Safety Management Academy (A Prime Institute of Fire and Disaster Training, the first of its kind in the country are also situated here. The Rohini Courts Complex with an imposing building constructed at a staggering cost of Rs. 100 cr is also located here. It is also the gateway of Rohini reputed to be the largest residential colony in Asia. The most renowned Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Dr B.R. Ambedkar Hospital are only 3 km from this major junction. The Middle Income Group (MIG) Flats numbering 640 of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) constructed way back in the year 1987 are situated exactly at the crossroads itself giving it a pride of place and providing high connectivity to the nook and corner of the National capital. With Pitampura Metro Station on the other side of the road and an underpass for a smooth flow of heavy vehicular traffic leading to Karnal bypass, the busy junction is a beehive of activity round the clock. However, to its discredit and its ill reputation, this is the only DDA Colony in Sector-8 without a boundary wall posing a serious security threat.
The foundation stone for the boundary wall was laid by none other than the first lady IPS of the country Mrs Kiran Bedi in 1997 but the construction was resisted by the shop keepers due to the commercialization of the residential flats. Due to unrestricted entry and trespassing by the anti-social elements, hawkers, waste paper/junk dealers, burglaries and auto-thefts even in broad daylight are a recurring feature. The Colony has since been handed over by DDA to the MCD for its maintenance and the latter is a cesspool of corruption.
MCD has totally neglected the sanitation resulting in squalor and filth with an impending danger of outbreak of epidemic diseases. Garbage dumps and litter strewn all over are an ugly sight. Open and choked drains have become an eyesore besides causing mosquito menace. It is high time that for proper maintenance of sanitation, it should be handed over to some private agency.
A small stretch near the cluster of flat Nos.627 to 640 has been left without a road since its inception as the DDA contractor has failed to carpet this area. The DDA which is a fountain head of corruption has cleared the Contractor’s bill without completion of work. This is a low lying area and even with the advent of monsoon, it turns into a lagoon with knee-deep water.
On many occasions due to overflow/draining of underground water tank (for periodical cleaning ) which is the main supply of drinking water to the colony also converts the area into a mini-pond due to the existence of the pump house exactly at the same location. Besides, the terrain is undulated and full of pot-holes. On many occasions, even while treading the path with utmost caution, elderly people had accidental fall sustaining serious injuries. Representations made in this regard to MCD have fallen on its deaf ears.
It is, therefore, necessary to raise the height of this small stretch to the ground level and lay a permanent road without cosmetic touches, preferably with cement as ‘asaphalt’ road is likely to be washed away by the swirling water of a heavy downpour. As the work is of a minor nature without much financial implication, the MCD should take it up without dilly dallying.
