Chandigarh: “I will make sure that every girl residing in this colony should get education. For this, I am going to make frequent visits here because if you people will not allow your girls to go to school, then we can’t expect Chandigarh to become a Smart City,” shared MP Kirron Kher, during an interaction held with the residents of Bapu Colony on Sunday.
While during the interaction, the residents shared many other problems including the safety of women at Phase 2 of the colony when they use public toilets. Responding to their complaints, Kher assured them that she would talk to the higher officials of the police to depute more police personnel to do patrolling.
Sansad Aapke Dwar interaction turns out to be a big relief for Education Department
Unlike last time, this time, the interaction turned out to be a big relief for Education Department as no one complained about the schools. Last time, the interaction at Dhanas Rehabilitation Colony, had turned out as an unpleasant affair for the Deputy Director, School Education, after he had got a severe dressing down and tongue- lashing from Kher when the colony kids told her about the non-availability of teachers in the colony schools. While, after that, the Education Department had also started surprise inspections in the schools.
Do not worry, no one is going to rebuke you: Kher to power officials
After the residents raised the questions over the dysfunctional electricity lights, Kher in her inimitable style called Superintending Engineer, Electricity Department, UT and said, “Come forward and answer the residents. No one is going to ‘eat’ you”.
Since the time I was studying water comes twice only: Kher
Replying to a complaint raised by colony resident Dinesh Kumar over water supply, Kher laughingly said, “Since the time I was studying water supply has been there only twice a day. Even now in my house, water comes two times a day. In some colonies, they are not even getting water supply once.
The problems are of safety and security of the colony residents, ownership rights and status of the permanent residents, the problem in depositing the licence fee of their flats at E-Sampark, aftermath position at the demolition of Jhuggis from the colony, the area lying vacant and now it has turned into a jungle creating problems for the residents, parking problem, problem of dysfunctional streetlights and sewerage problem.
