Inoperative streetlights in Gurgaon a cause of concern
Gurgaon has witnessed a number of incidents in the recent past, especially during the night. Such kind of incidents are bound to shape up, if streetlights remain inoperative, which seems to be the case in many areas of Gurgaon, primarily around the stretches of Old Delhi-Gurgaon road. Only 20 per cent of the streetlights work in some areas.
Such stats came to the forefront only after Gurgaon Action Plan (GAP), a citizens' forum for governance conducted its survey along Old Gurgaon. Such surveys are the need of the hour to make the lazy officials in the concerned department wake up.

Gauri Sarain from GAP said, "During the course of the survey along with officials from the MCG, we found that the corporation has outsourced its lighting maintenance to contractors. Every year MCG issues the maintenance tender for its lighting project which is reviewed by an MCG team after which they invite the tenders,'' reported The Times of India.

What made the situation worse was the fact that one of the most important roads, which lead to the Gurgaon Railway station from Sector 5 did not work and other areas from Maharana Pratap chowk to Signature Tower were also not working properly.

As a result of which they got in touch with MCG officials and inquired about the same and the MCG mush to their disappointment gave them lame excuses.
