Wheat stocked in fields

Wheat stocked in fields

Owing to sudden arrival of wheat stock at local grain markets, there was virtually no space to accommodate it. The lifting was tardy and there was a shortage of 'bardana'. So, the arhtiyas persuaded the farmers to buy wheat in their own fields. Soon, the fields became full of bags and heaps. It may rain anytime, which can spoil the stock. The procurement agencies should discourage this practice, as the entire stock can be infested, the fields being low-lying.

Muddy water supply irks residents

The water supplied by the HSVP in Sector 9, Ambala City, is muddy and emits stink. It becomes even more crucial to provide clean water, when there has been a surge in Covid-19 cases. The area has been declared a macro-containment zone. No top-level officer has ever visited the area or met the Residents' Welfare Association members. The DM, Ambala, should address the issue.

Fix time frame for gas project

The recent news of Panchkula getting piped natural gas (PNG) has been welcomed, but the time frame (September 30, 2021) mentioned is untenable. Even in Chandigarh, many sectors are without PNG, despite tall promises. As laying of external and underground gas pipelines, digging and meter installation are time consuming processes, this project cannot be completed even by March 31, 2022. It may take two to three years to cover Panchkula. Ramit Bagga, Panchkula


Extend summer holidays in courts

The second wave of Covid-19 has led to a nationwide outcry. People working at the district courts, located on the judicial premises, come here every day to defend their cases. It is not safe for them to visit lower courts at the district headquarters. Many judges, lawyers, executive officers and employees have been infected. The Punjab and Haryana High Court should declare summer holidays from May, instead of June. It will be beneficial to stop work for one month in all lower courts and executive courts at the district level across the state.
