No accountability at all…

Often, I find that public spaces like roads and footpaths are used as if they are there for our own convenience.

I passed this plot of land being readied for construction a couple of days ago:

jpnagar excavation 030209

That was a footpath before this all started!

Why has all the debris been thrown on the pavement? There is now no space for anyone to walk, and the debris extends to the road, too.

We are not aware, either, how we should protest when such a civic-unfriendly act occurs; so we feel helpless, and keep quiet, and bemoan the lack of civic sense in our city….

Does anyone have an idea where one can complain in such a situation? And if anything will be done at all?

for reading Citizen Matters, of course. It would be fantastic to be able to thank you for supporting us as well. For 12 years we have strived to bring you trustworthy and useful information about our cities. Because informed citizens are crucial to make a better city. Support Citizen Matters today.
