Ferozepur:No doubt, most of the politicians in the democratic set up use the pick and choose policy to provide the benefits and the services to the people of the area.
These politicians try to avoid the development of those ares, where they have no supporter or the voter. But it would be the worst trend, if the administrative officials adopt the same trend to avoid the people belonging to the opposition parties.
An MC from Ferozepur accused the administrative officials of the municipality as well as the civil administration with such allegations of discrimination for the development works as well as providing the basic amenities to the ward number 14, in which have the maximum slum area of the city.
A large number of people of ward number 14 protested on Thursday and raised the Anti-Administration slogans demanding to provide them basic facilities, like cleanliness, street lights and Pucca streets. Showing the heaps of garbage the MC of Congress Babbu Pardhan said that he had written so many times to all the administrative officers including Deputy Commissioner, SDM, EIO and the High Court to intervene in the matter and to provide the basic amenities and cleanliness in the ward, but none had solved their problems.
He said that most of the streets of the ward are in a miserable condition and there are big heaps of garbage in its surroundings creating a great nuisance and spreading the epidemics in the area.
Showing the written orders of the DC Ferozepur in which the Deputy Commissioner had ordered the SDM and EO to remove the illegal encroachments and assure the arrangements to remove the garbage from the ward, Babbu told Daily Post correspondent that inspite of these orders of the then DC Ferozepur DPS Kharbanda none of the official had helped them. Babbu told that a development of pucca road had been started few months ago, but could not be completed and work had been stopped.
He told that there is no street light in the ward and people had been suffering, the garbage and filth had been dropped in the Dushehra ground , most of the people had encroached the streets illegally, but no official had ever dare to ask them to remove the encroachment. He said that as the BJP and SAD is in a absolute majority in the house of the Council, no body was botering about the wards represented by the Congress party.
The DC Ferozepur said that he would go into the matter and do the needful. The phone of the EO was switch off, due to which he could not be contacted
