The road leading to the Mall Road via Sabji Mandi is in a bad shape. While the repair and maintenance work on the road has been on for a while now, causing much inconvenience to the commuters, it seems no one is paying attention to collect garbage from here. The drain here is full of plastic wrappers and tinned bottles. The authorities concerned should clean it up as soon as possible. — Nikhil Sood, Shimla
Market stretch full of dust
Dust on the market stretch of Chogan on the Pathankot-Mandi National Highway in Nurpur town has made the lives of shopkeepers miserable. The IPH Department, after laying underground sewerage pipes here, has covered the roadside with debris and muck without undertaking its repair or patch work. Owing to heavy traffic pressure on the NH, dust enters the roadside shops. This is a health hazard to the shopkeepers as well as pedestrians. The matter was brought into the notice of the IPH Department authorities by submitting a signed memorandum, but in vain. An urgent solution of the problem is required in public interest. — Promod Mahajan,Nurpur
