Damaged road leading to mishaps in Rohtak city

A damaged stretch on Subhash Road outside General Hospital in Rohtak city has become a cause of mishaps. Many two-wheelers have skidded on this patch causing injuries to riders. Since it is a busy road, two-wheeler riders fail to negotiate it. Four-wheelers too are getting damaged. The authorities concerned should immediately repair this road to avoid the possibility of any major mishap.

High-mast tower lights on during daytime

For the past three months, careless staff of the Nagar Parishad, after switching on the high-mast tower lights, simply forget to switch it off during the day. Two high-mast towers lights, have 50 bulbs of 1,500 W each, so in 12 hours, each bulb consumes 84 units of power. Each bulb/day costs Rs 420.This means, 50 lights in one day consumes power worth Rs 21,000 and in one month, it's about Rs 6.30 lakh. Consumption of so much power without any purpose is a criminal negligence on behalf of the irresponsible staff of the Nagar Parishad and strict action should be taken against them.

It has been well established that Covid-19 virus has badly impacted the national economy and above all damaged the course of education. For the past two years, schools and colleges have been closed and have not started functioning fully to meet the loss occurred in the process. The future of students is at stake. Hence, it is the duty and responsibility of the government to take corrective measures to bring back education on track. Educational institutions should be opened gradually and efforts should be made to bring back normalcy to the classrooms.
