Pathetic condition of PoloGround government quarters
Residents of government quarters in Polo Ground are suffering because of poor construction of the quarters.
Residents of government quarters in Polo Ground are suffering because of poor construction of the quarters. Water drips from the ceiling of the quarters. Vinod Verma, Steno in Session Court, lives in government quarter number F-55 in Polo Ground. Two months back, PWD had repaired the ceilings of this quarter. The work was done in such a bad way that with the first rain shower this season, the ceiling started dripping.
As per Verma’s complaint, all the ceilings of the house are dripping. Even the ceiling of bedroom and kitchen is in poor condition and constantly dripping. With the previous light rain shower, the ceilings of the house had become damp but with the heavy and continuous spell of rain, it has become difficult for Verma to live in that quarter. In fact after the repair work, more water is coming into the rooms through the poorly made ceilings.
Residents of the colony said that numerous complaints have been made. All the quarters are in the same condition. Quarters of Himmat Singh Nalwaya, Hari Singh Bhanawat, Rajeev Gupta are all in similar condition. Vinod Verma had given a written complaint but hasn’t received a response until now. Residents complained that they have spoken to Madhuban AEN on many occasions. AEN did not even turn up to inspect the houses, forget about eradicating the problem. SMS messages are also sent but AEN never responds to these messages.
A budget of 65 lakhs has been allotted for the repair work in Polo Ground. Repair and maintenance is going on since last two months but it is completely unorganised. Work has been half done in the houses. Proper care is not being taken while carrying out repair work. No one from PWD even comes to check the quality of work done. Verma said that repair work of his house is lying incomplete since last few months.
XEN DC Mathur said that he was not aware of any such issue and he would go and inspect the situation.
