The main dividing road between Sector 7 and 8 in Panchkula (near the entry gate number 5 of Sector 8) speaks volumes about the shoddy working of the city's electricity department. There are two tilted electricity poles, which have been high-risk prone for years together on this widely used road. Is Panchkula’s power corporation waiting for some unfortunate mishap to take place before it eventually wakes up from its deep slumber?
Broken manholes pose danger in Narwana
Most manholes in residential or business area will have their cover missing. In the Birbal Nagar locality of Narwana, the situation is so frightening that a tractor-trolley ran into a deep ditch while negotiating a broken manhole. Sewage water which emits foul smell keeps flowing out from such manholes. The officials concerned say they have ordered for the covers, but they are not sure when they will receive the supplies. Will the authorities wake up and take action? Ramesh Gupta, Narwana

But lane driving, as prevalent in most countries of the world, has never been the priority of the departments concerned. Why?
