Before the rainy season set in I had apprised the Commissioner of the Municipal Corporation through email to get the drains at different locations such as Inco Chowk, Vivek Vihar, Near OBC Bank and close to the Grain Market cleared so that there was enough space for the water to flow during the rainy season. It was not taken seriously. It happens every year and people make hue and cry and later forget what happened till the next season. The need of the hour is to find long-term effective measures. — GP Kansal, Ambala
Dubaldhan-Palra road in poor condition
A 2-km stretch of the Dubaldhan-Palra road has been in a poor condition since a long time but no one is paying heed despite repeated complaints.

The district administration must take note and get the road recarpeted at the earliest. — DHARMENDER KADIAN, JHAJJAR
Narwana village lacks shed at cremation ground
There is no shed or room at the cremation ground in Kandela village where people can cremate bodies during the rainy season. The villagers erect a temporary shed of tarpaulin to burn bodies. The village is thickly populated and is frequently visited by senior politicians of all parties. The administration must provide the basic amenities to the people. — Ramesh Gupta, Narwana
