Choked drain stinks, needs cleaning in Ambala
The pucca drain passes between the road leading towards Kaithal-Hissar and the Mandi (grain market) main wall. The drain is fully chocked and stinks. The reason being many fruits and vegetables vendors have encroached the area. The vegetable and fruit waste are thrown in the drain and animals can be seen hovering around the place. It is surprising as to why stakeholders of Swacchata Abhiyan and the department concerned have not taken care of issue. I hope the Municipal Commissioner, Ambala City, would take cognisance of the issue and set things right in public interest. Gian P Kansal, Ambala
Implement UT pattern in Haryana too
This refers to ‘Big relief for power consumers in Chandigarh’ (Chandigarh Tribune, April 1). It was quite heartening to learn that the JERC has directed the UT Electricity Department to discontinue the recovery of the fuel and power purchase cost adjustment (FPPCA) charges starting April 1, 2021, till further orders. Let Haryana state government also walk into the shoes of the UT of Chandigarh and favourably consider providing similar relief to its subjects. For sure, such a ‘pro-people’ move will go a long way in earning some brownie points for the state government. SK Gupta, Panchkula
Ventilators lying idle at Jind hospital
Life-saving devices like ventilators are lying idle in all civil hospitals of Jind district. Last year, five ventilators were supplied to Civil Hospital, Jind, when the Covid pandemic was at its peak, to save precious lives of patients. Nine ventilators have been supplied now as the number of Covid patients have increased. But these ventilators can’t be used simply because in all these hospitals, there is no ICU rooms and anesthetists, and without this provision, these packed ventilators have been locked in a room. This is a waste of public money. Ramesh Gupta, Narwana
