Chandigarh, October 18

A team of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) will interact with local residents from tomorrow to know how they want their city to be in 2030.

The team will attend the “Corporation Aapke Dwar” event in different parts of the city. Residents and RWAs will take part in these events. They will share the problems of their areas with councillors and MC officials.

The UNDP team members will get a chance to interact with public at ground zero and understand their issues. A questionnaire of around 30 questions ranging from issues related to development, civic issues and aspirations of people will be give to the residents.

An MC official said there were questions like “How residents want to see their city in 2030?, What are their expectations?, What improvements are required in their areas? and What are the problems?.

The “Chandigarh Master Plan 2031”, which was finalised around seven years ago, has achieved little progress. Questions related to it were also expected to be there.

MC Commissioner Anindita Mitra said: “The UNDP team had a meeting with the UT Adviser. Following this, its members approached us about taking feedback from the public. I suggested them to join us at our ‘Corporation Aapke Dwar’ events where from people from all corners of the city will be present. They will get the actual feedback there.”

The event, which is starting just two months before the elections, will kick off from Tuesday evening from Sector 45 and will continue till code of conduct comes into force.

“Under this campaign, the MC will reach different areas to listen to the grievances of local residents. Once the code of conduct is in force, we will listen to the issues of their delegations in the MC office as we will not be allowed to hold public gatherings,” said the MC chief.
