Mohali citizens want the city’s drainage improved and proper maintenance of the existing storm run-off system. Deputy Commission Varun Roojam says he has appointed a committee.
The heavy rains of the past few days have had the predictable effect on low lying areas of Mohali. On Saturday the issue was raised by several residents’ welfare associations at the regular Citizens’ Forum attended by Mohali Deputy Commissioner Varun Roojam.
People in the audience derided the frequent claims made by Punjab’s Deputy Chief Minister regarding Mohali’s future as a great international city. Many speakers blamed lack of coordination between government departments for Mohali’s tacky condition during the monsoon season.
Responding to the criticisms, Deputy Commissioner Roojam said that he has constituted a committee and the problem would be sorted out.All over the Tricity area, rain exposes the shortcomings in civic preparedness. So long as it is not actually raining, the authorities can claim anything, but it takes only one good shower to reveal the truth.
