A socio-political outfit, the Rashtriya Ekta Manch Party (REMP), has appealed to Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda to take urgent steps to improve civic amenities in the Millenium City of Gurgaon.

In a letter sent to the Chief Minister's Office in Chandigarh, REMP President Shatrughan Singh Chauhan said it was lamentable that while on the hand, Gurgaon boasted of swanky malls, BPO firms, multinational corporations and state-of-the-art corporate offices, on the other hand, the city suffered from pathetic and broken roads, heavy traffic and inadequate infrastructure.

Chauhan further stated that there was a mismatch between the rapidly increasing population of Gurgaon and its inadequate infrastructure. He categorically blamed the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon for turning a deaf ear to the complaints of Gurgaon citizens.

He highlighted the fact Gurgaon's image is taking a major hit because of administrative apathy towards improving essential and basic civic amenities.

Rubbishing claims of state government officials about the sustainable development of the Millennium City, Chauhan said there was also power and water scarcity

He urged the chief minister to galvanise the state administration to take steps to improve basic civic amenities in a growing city like Gurgaon. (ANI)
