In a bid to provide basic needs to the residents of illegal colonies in Gurgaon, the Haryana Management of Civic Amenities and Infrastructure Deficient Municipal Areas (special provisions) Act 2013 was passed in October last year. As per the state government instructions, the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) has started the work regarding basic amenities for the residents of 44 illegal colonies.
Satya Bir Singh Rohilla, Public Relation Officer,
MCG, said, ''these colonies have been regularized by the state
government almost two months ago. Only then MCG has initiated to
provide basic needs like drinking water, sewage disposal, roads and
streetlights to the residents of these colonies. At last, the people
of these colonies also have the right to live.''
Rohilla further added that the process for drinking
water was initiated since Monday. Even the work of laying water
pipelines in Hira Nagar and Shakti Park colonies have started. It is
expected to be completed within the three months.
On asking about the political tactic behind deadline
of this work, Y K Garh, Superintendent Engineer, MCG said, ''this is
a government work. It will take a finishing end at its time. It has
nothing to do with the assembly elections in Haryana, which are
scheduled to be October.''
With the civic work starting, it is going to be a
great moment for the people of these colonies. Monsoon is still here
to stay. Now the only worry of the people is that this work should be
completed soon so they can make the most of basic amenities.
