Pune: Members of Sus-Mahalunge Housing Society Association will be organising a silent protest on March 10 at Vibgyor School road, Sus-Mahalunge, against the governing bodies for not providing civic amenities to the residents of the area.
Pankaj Damle, member of the association and resident of Yashwin Society, Sus, said, “There are 5,000 residents residing in ten societies at Sus-Mahalunge area. Three societies are coming up and yet we are deprived of basic amenities such as proper roads, streetlights, garbage collection system, water supply, processing plant, security, among others.”
“From last two years, we have been rigorously meeting the heads of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) and Gram Panchayat of Sus and Mahalunge. The heads of all these governing bodies are aware of the issue but still there are no concrete solutions taken by them,” Damle added.
Aditya Gupta, another resident of Saarrthi Souvenir society and member of the association, said, “We are living inside a T-junction where on one side is Baner, other is Sus and third is Mahalunge. The governing bodies need to establish boundaries between Baner and Mahalunge, Baner and Sus. Only then, the problem will be looked upon and can be solved. Therefore, to highlight these issue, which we are facing from the last five years, the silent protest is being organised on March 10 from 10 am to 12 pm at Vibgyor School road, behind Mercedes Benz showroom. A written copy about the protest has been given to PMC, PCMC, PMRDA, Gram Panchayat of Sus and Mahalunge.”
