Patiala residents, AAP workers protest poor condition of roads

Patiala, September 27

Residents of various colonies and workers of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today held a protest against the poor condition of roads in colonies.

Leaders of the political party reached Ward numbers 30, 31 and 32 where residents and party leaders claimed that development work had not been initiated.

Tejinder Mehta of the Aam Aadmi Party said the roads in the colonies were in a poor condition.

Walking as well as driving on the damaged roads had become a Herculean task for residents. Municipal Corporation officials as well as councillors had failed to take stock of the situation, he said.

The work of laying sewage pipes in the area had been completed, but roads had not been repaired yet. No tenders had been allotted to carry out road repair works in these areas, Mehta claimed.

Harish Aggarwal, Councillor of Ward No. 30, said: “Some work has already been started in my ward. We will complete the pending work in these colonies soon.”

MC Commissioner Poonamdeep Kaur said: “Work to repair roads has already been started in the area. Sewage pipes were laid in this area recently under the Amrut Scheme. We will complete the work within two months.” — TNS
