All the citizens of Gurgaon have one common problem i.e. dusty roads. And we are not talking about the interiors of the city, where a kuchcha road would be dusty, but we are talking about the main roads, flyovers and highways as well. For the same problem, riders and pillion riders are seen wearing scarves around their faces and cars always have their windows closed (even in scorching summer).
Dusty roads not only damage the eyes but also causes accidents because of the loss of visibility and bikers skidding on roads due to sand accumulation on the roads. Talking about this problem, Mangat Ram Bagdi, a BJP leader and MCG Councillor of Ward No 10, Laxman Vihar, said, "Dhanwapur road and Sector 4 Outer Roads are not only dusty but covered with sand and rubbish. There is no facility of cleanliness and for six months I have been pursuing the matter."
Bagri added that because of the callous attitude of the MCG, he has to face the anger of the citizens in his ward.
Talking about the same issue, he also said, "This issue of dusty roads has become a hazard now, as bikers skid over the sand and it may cause a major accident some day. Moreover, whenever a big vehicle passes the road, the dust is unbearable and it flies inside people's homes. I have talked to the MCG, Health Officer Sumit Dhandkar and has intimated him about the situation. Each time, he says that there is not enough man-force to take up the cleanliness drive."
When Sumit Dhandkar, Medical Officer with the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon was contacted, regarding the problem, and what he is doing to resolve it, he said, "Today we have sent a Sanitary Instructor (SI) and we are cleaning the said area."
