Sector 30-B residents feel ‘suffocated’

Chandigarh, May 18

Residents of Sector 30-B here have demanded removal of the non-affected part of the locality from the containment zone.

Councillor Devinder Babla has also written to UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore in this regard citing various problems being faced by residents, including lack of basic amenities, essential items and medical facilities.

“Some of us are losing jobs as we are not able to report at our workplaces. Several people have no money to buy essentials. They are not in a situation to pay power and water bills. Overall, the condition has become terrible for Sector 30-B residents at large,” said Roshan, a resident.

No Covid-19 positive case has been reported from Sector 30-B for the past 11 days. As a precautionary measure, a large part of Sector 30-B was declared a containment zone and the entire area was sealed. Residents feel only the affected area should be included in it.

Babla, in his letter to Badnore, wrote: “Residents of Sector 30-B have been living in deplorable and appalling conditions. They are frustrated. Medical facilities are becoming a big challenge here. Senior citizens and kids are locked down in small houses. They are feeling suffocated.”

Babla requested Badnore to review the situation as the number of active cases here has fallen from 21 to a single digit and no new case was reported recently. — TNS
