The construction work is going on briskly. The retail outlet exactly within 50 meters of the bus stop opposite to pillar no. 185 and is in about 100 meters to an educational institution opposite to pillar no. 186 and adjacent to residential complexes too. Further, the pedestrians and commuters waiting at the bus stop are put to hardship due to wrong side driving by the vehicle drivers.
There are two places of worship within nine blocks Housing complexes, which belong to two sects of Muslim minority. There are several families living outside the housing complex. One sect men, women & children has to cross the outlet and come through the approach road to the place of worship during mornings and nights. Several working women living in and around nine blocks housing complex do reach bit late in the night, they are worried and talk of insecurity.
If the outlet is allowed to function, worshipers, women and children will not be able to use the approach road due to safety reasons. There is no proper street lighting on the approach road and it adds additional worries and controlling of daily nuisance is not possible. The peace and harmony prevailing in the area will be totally disturbed.
Will the officials take steps to close down the outlet if the residents lodge a complaint with them? It is doubtful. Will the local police set up an outpost for the safety of the residents and others and to control drunken brawl?
